We want our clients to be successful so that they continue to invest with us. If you lose money you stop investing and we lose you as a client! The more people invest with us the lower the fees can be Our brokerage fees have fallen over the last 4 years

2 Saving vs. investing Saving is putting your money in the bank and receiving interest. The capital is not going to grow and the rate of return is modest and largely predictable Storing money safely, such as in a bank or money market account, for short-term needs such as upcoming expenses or emergencies. Investing is putting your money to work for you This offers capital growth (with risk of capital loss) and a share of the profit in the form of dividends Is taking a risk with a portion of your savings such as by buying stocks in hopes of realizing higher long-term returns.

Being able to master risk is being able to master the markets. What is your investment time frame? Success depends on ensuring that your investment strategy fits your personal characteristics and goals. 1 4 1 5 Understanding the Share Market What is a share? A share gives you a share of the assets and profits of a company. e.g. with Pick n Pay you own a small part

of every store. If a company does well (is growing its profits) then its share price should rise. Likewise if a company is not doing well (is making losses) then its share price should fall. Owning a share means that you can profit from share price movements and share income (dividends). You get to vote at the AGM 1 6 What is a share market? Like any other market. Requires buyers and sellers. Stock is bought or sold when buyers and sellers agree on a price.

Companies gather to issue shares in return for cash in order to expand and grow their business (e.g. Pick n Pay may issue shares to grow the number of supermarkets it has). 1 7 What are share indices? 1 8 The market performed well today what do they mean when they refer to the market? An index is a way of measuring the performance of a selection of shares across the market.

When an index is up it means that on balance the share price of most of the shares in that index have increased that day. If the index is down then on balance most share prices of the shares on the market have decreased that day. Indices can be used as market barometers for the market as a whole. Examples of well know indices are: All Share 30 323 +87.1 Nikkei 12 433 +387.7

Dow Jones 12 100 +25.9 5 693 +56.5 FTSE-100 How to make money in the stock market You can make money with shares in two ways: 1. Buying a share at a low price and selling that share at a higher price at a future date. This is referred to as

capital growth e.g. buying Sanlam on 02 Jan 2007 for R19.00 per share and selling on 02 Jan 2008 for R22.81. A profit of R3.81 per share or a return of 20% over that period of time. 2. Receiving dividends from owning a share. This is referred to as income. e.g. Sanlam paid a dividend of 77c in 2007, which is a 4% tax free yield 1 9 What is a dividend? 2 0

Dividends can be seen like tax free interest earned. Dividends are distributions of a companies earnings to shareholders. The dividend earned on shares depends on the profits earned by the company and payment is decided by the company. The return that you receive from dividends can be expressed as % and is referred to as the dividend yield (like interest). e.g. if you purchased Sanlam on 02 Jan 2007 you would have received a divided payment of R0.77 per share. This is a return of 4% per share. (R0.77 / R19.00 = 4%) Income stocks DY 3-8, growth stocks DY less then 3 Dividends returns

The story- what the company does & what its outlook is (e.g. Pick n Pay is a supermarket chain. The outlook could be good for the economy and hence for personal spending could lead to more purchases at Pick n Pay hence the profits could be up and hence the share price could go up as well) The numbers review the financial statements of the company to see how healthy it is. (Look at the income statement to see the profitability of Pick n Pay . Look at the balance sheet to see how financially secure it is). Look at the Price Earnings (PE) Ratio. The picture look at the history of the companies share price in a price chart (e.g. look at the past performance to see if the share is rising or falling, what is its trend?) 2 3 The story (e.g. Pick n Pay)
