ordinar' investors to get into the stock market at never before seen prices and set
themselves up tid' nest-eggs for the future.
&he research methods e use are usuall' the preserve of large investments funds
and private client ealth managers and are coupled ith some ver' uni?ue and ne
anal'tical concepts to the South #frican investing audience. -n addition, although
man' investment books cover some ver' interesting research, nobod' bothers to test
or tailor this to the JSE since it is such a small market and e are such a tin' countr'.
We aim to @ll that gap too. Some of our more detailed ground-breaking research ill
be made available for purchase from time to time, hoever the free information e
oIer ill still be e'e-popping, highl' educational and ver' topical.

We subscribe to the time-tested investing methodologies of the industr' greats, such
as Warren 0uIet, 0en!amin )raham, ;artin Keig, *MShaugness', William J *M.eil
and man' others. We research their orks e"tensivel' as ell as tests of their
methodologies and s'stems performed on overseas markets. Using our poerful JSE
anal'sis softare, and data going back <3 'ears, e then check to see ho ell
these strategies performed historicall' on the JSE.
S'stems shoing the most eIective historical performance are then tracked on a
dail' or eekl' basis and posted to our various :ortfolio 0logs. &his kind of research
is ver' ell published and available for the US markets, but ver' fe markets outside
the US. We are not comfortable picking strategies that seem to ork on the US and
use them on the JSE, as the JSE is a ver' diIerent animal. -ts a tenth of the size of the
US markets for starters F<33 shares versus 5,333H. &he sector mi" is also ver'
diIerent Fe are resources heav' versus the U.S hich is technolog'>-ndustrial

and the general public has not 'et taken charge of their on investments as the US
has. #nd of course our countries and cultures are ver', ver' diIerent.
