The easy money has been made, it’s time for investors to grit their teeth – Magnus Heystek 

The hard-hitting Magnus Heystek unpacks what has been a tough start to the year for the financial markets. Heystek, who has been bullish on technology-focused businesses –specifically in the US – for the better part of a decade, says he and his team are mulling over a change in strategy. It’s been all about the US stock markets, but a paradigm shift in the markets, together with economic policy, may favour investment returns in different destinations in the 10 years to follow. Europe and parts of Asia look especially encouraging, according to Heystek, who adds that the commodity boom has been a saving grace for the South African economy and treasury.

Piet Viljoen on Sasol's windy sails; PPC's insider selling

Counterpoint value fund manager Piet Viljoen unpacks the reasoning behind inflation widening global wealth inequality. Primarily owing to economic policy and supply side issues, inflation has been driven to its highest levels in decades, leaving the poor helpless. The rich can shield themselves by investing in assets that will perform well during inflationary periods, such as oil and gas companies. However, the poor spend all their income on basic necessities, leaving them very exposed to price increases. JSE favourites Sasol and PPC are discussed from an investment perspective, with Viljoen optimistic about both counters’ prospects.

Did Neal Froneman get cold feet on Sibanye-Stillwater’s $1bn green metals acquisition? – Peter Major explains 

Mining guru Peter Major looks at the controversy behind Sibanye-Stillwater’s $1bn nickel and copper mine acquisition in Brazil. On Monday, Sibanye announced the deal would be terminated on the grounds that a “geotechnical event” occurred at the Santa Rita mine that would materially affect operations. However, the seller – private equity mining house Appian Capital Advisory – has come out and said there is no legal basis for Sibanye to terminate the deal as the incident wasn’t a materially adverse effect and occurs in the normal course of open-pit mines. Did renowned deal-maker and Sibanye CEO Neal Froneman get cold feet? The nickel price has remained robust since the deal was announced three months ago, so Peter Major believes it has more to do with another attractive acquisition target than valuation on an existing deal.
