John Loos comments on the unchanged Repo Rate

SARB leaves Repo Rate unchanged after only 1 x 25 basis point cut in the current cutting cycle. Weak consumer confidence likely to remain, and shift to a more cautious consumer expected to continue says John Loos, Household and Property Sector Strategist.

Texton Property Fund delivers good results

Diversified property REIT, Texton Property Fund Limited (“Texton”), today announced good annual results despite a challenging year, declaring an annual dividend of 102,80 cents per share.

Downgrading to junk status and ongoing political tomfoolery might make South African investors a little anxious about protecting their investment portfolios against the market volatility resulting from the uncertainty created by the current environment.

It is important to understand that, due to significant resistance by home sellers to house price declines, in times of economic and residential demand slowdown the residential market can often move away from market equilibrium price.

Buying a home is likely the largest financial decision most people will ever make.

JSE listed REIT Octodec today announced half year results exceeding its distribution guidance despite the challenging economic, political and operating environment.

The downgrading of South Africa's debt to junk status and the firing of Pravin Gordhan as finance minister mean that interest rates will be on hold until 2020 at least, a poll of economists predicted yesterday.
