I generally keep them for medium to long term and keep on buying at intervals. There is no point in timing the market.

it looks to start climbing now again, u really think it will drop more and down to R20 ish?
It’s very speculative. I’ve bought some when the price was around R19 a share.

I don’t think it will drop back to sub R20, but it might go to +- R26 before January 2022 in my opinion. However if the price remains as is I will still buy some for the medium long term

Buy anything with high alpha and low beta and hold it for long term. Basically these are the stoks You buy and forget. High alpha helps you ride like a bull and low beta works like a parking brake when market falls. From my 10 years of experience in this market I will say, investing in South Africa is not worthy as the best of the best products gives max 10% avg. return. Hold a $ account and Invest globally.

I agree. I’ve invested quite a bit in stocks like AMD, Nvidea etc and it has outperformed my SA stocks by a massive margin.
