Overview of shares included in today’s list:
- Gold Fields Ltd (GFI)
- Naspers (NPN)
- British American Tobacco (BTI)
- Tesla (TSLA)
- Anglo American PLC (AGL)
As ever, gold is a great safe-haven investment as its price continues to rise despite ongoing volatility in other market areas.
Gold Fields Limited, a South African mining giant, has seen a continuous rise in its share price on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
While the conglomerate has continued to run effective and profitable output, gold as a commodity has also remained a valuable and strategic part of any strong investment portfolio.
The share price discount from Naspers has remained the largest outside of the gold sector, while the company’s strong asset diversification has seen continuous growth for its investors.
As such, 90% of Naspers’ valuation is derived from the company’s 70% holding in Prosus NV shares and 30% holding in Tencent, a veritable tech giant.
Added to this, Naspers’ remaining portfolio has a strong foothold in the online marketplace for payments and food delivery enterprises.
British American Tobacco is a veritable leader in the tobacco industry that has not logged a drop in its stock value since its inception. This makes BAT an excellent option for those seeking to underpin their portfolios with a more secure investment.
British American Tobacco has a strong regional presence throughout Africa, where demand for its products continue to rise, so that the company has managed to outpace several drawbacks to the tobacco industry, including the controversial cigarette ban in South Africa as well as broader consumer trends.
4. Tesla (TSLA)
Headed by South African-born billionaire, Elon Musk, Tesla has presented an exciting investment opportunity in 2022. While still a relatively young company, Tesla has seen an astronomical increase in its share value.
The ongoing demand for its sleek range of electric cars and the broad-based appeal of the company’s other business forays into the space exploration industry have seen its share value grow from just $17 in 2010 to $1,592 at the end of 2020.
Tech companies have long been viable investment options for shares traders, and Tesla’s fast-paced growth coupled with its increasing business diversification makes it an excellent option for South Africa investors.
While gold is traditionally a dependable safe haven investment, underlying commodities such as copper and iron ore have experienced a growing global demand, causing base metal mining company Anglo American Plc shares to trade at premiums to their longer-term price targets.
With the global demand for base metals showing a sustained upward trend, Anglo American Plc would be a valuable addition to your investment portfolio in 2022, particularly for those investors seeking longer-term returns.
