My stock picks for 2013

Feb 19 2013 15:36
Fin24 user Pierre Jacobs writes:

I am just an amateur investor in stocks. But since I have been concentrating on my portfolio, I have for the past six years done a lot better than my investments with Old Mutual or Sanlam.

This has not been a case of one year but consistently over the past number of years. Hence me calling in all my family policies as well as medical aid and advising them to go the equity investment route.

The only assurance policy I have is for death, disability and dreaded disease. ZERO retirement investments with insurance companies.

My only medical aid cover is a hospital plan and life-threatening (conditions) such as diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure.

All of a sudden my medical aid does not “run out of savings” or have claims rejected.

My seven stock picks for this year are:

  • Pinnacle Technology
  • SBAPL1 – Platinum ETF
  • Curro
  • Rolfes
  • Fortress B
  • Ellies
  • Grindrod

I am firmly of the opinion that these seven will give me well in excess of 25% across the board for the year 2013.
Even if they give me a little less, it still has to be better than any insusurance or medical cover company.

If you want to make it a solid eight – just add Coronation.
