INVESTMENT IDEAS THAT RESONATE

Episode 050 - John O'Connell, Chairman & CEO, Davis Rea Investment Counsel, Part Two.

Investors should ask themselves one key question during this unprecedented time in financial markets as we continue our conversation with John O'Connell, Chairman and CEO of Davis Rea Investment Counsel.

If you knew the stock market was shutting down for an extended period tomorrow, what would you do today? Buy, sell, or do nothing? O'Connell explains what he would do.

He also provides insights on the reaction of professional investors to the COVID-19 pandemic, why there will be two "emotional" stock market bottoms, what the 74% of his clients' portfolios that is not in cash consists of, and why he's excited about certain investment opportunities but is not buying just yet.

This interview was recorded in late March, 2020.

Episode 049 - John O'Connell, Chairman & CEO, Davis Rea Investment Counsel, Part One.

Experience counts. After more than 35 years managing money, John O'Connell knows a thing or two about market crashes. The Chairman and CEO of Davis Rea Investment Counsel witnessed his first crash in 1987 and many others after that including the financial crisis.

This latest plunge, the fastest and steepest on record, triggered primarily by coronavirus fears and exacerbated by an oil price war, shares similarities with all of the other dramatic market downturns because, O'Connell says, they've all involved a degree of investor panic.

In this interview with Mark Bunting, O'Connell explains why investors require context, reflection and perspective at this time, and why he's "enthusiastically embracing this crisis" and waiting to buy because he has his clients sitting on 26% cash.
