FSR vs SBK
« on: April 23, 2013, 11:07:55 am »
A family member has given me a small sum with instructions to invest in either FirstRand or Std Bank. I know that there are better bets out their, but being family, I know better than to argue this decision ;D. The question is, which one should I go for? Being a long term investment, I am tempted more towards SBK, due to "my perceived" :-\ better fundamental value and Divi return.
Do any of the Forumites have an opinion as to which of these two would be preferable as a long term purchase?

I haven't looked at those seriously, but these figures would help me make that choice:
FSR 1 year change + 27.4%
SBK 1 year change - 0.25%

Also take a look at the 5 year graphs. SBK is all over the show, FSR looks much healthier. Divvies seem pretty much the same to me, both quite good around 3.5%

10 yr. = 19.12%

FSR

Which one has the 'bigger' Africa footprint (more representation in rest of Africa is an advantage going forward, imho.)

Thanks JhbMaverick and Moonraker. Definitly food for further thought.
