How to Survive a Bear Attack

How to Survive a Bear Attack

Thank you to Menard Kinkaid Wealth Management who hosted an informative presentation on March 7th titled ‘How To Survive A Bear Attack’  by Phillip Petursson, Chief Investment Strategist at Manulife Investments. It was great to connect with your team – James Kinkaid, Susan Moore, Rob Meredith, Roger Heard, Brianna Barber, Danielle Goddard, Kathy Massine.

Don’t fret, no humans or bears were harmed in the making of this presentation. The “bear” in question refers to a bear market which is a condition where security prices drop dramatically after a recent high. Phillip provided the following takeaways on how investors can survive these types of markets:

Rule #1:  Vanquish Fear & Panic

·        Focus on the fundamentals, not emotion

·        Q4 was not 2008, but many retail investors treated it as though it was

·        There are no signs of Global recession in 2019

Rule #2:  Become Familiar With Your Environment

·        Negative calendar year returns are rare outside of recessionary environments.

·        Positive feelings on the Canadian banks and energy stocks.

·        Money being put to work in the US and Global markets makes sense.

Rule #3:  Take Advantage of Opportunities

·        Investors are their own worst enemy – resist the urge to flee the markets (see Rule #1) and look for quality on sale

·        There are windfalls and shortfalls to every asset class – asset allocation remains a critical factor

Testimonial from Rob Waterman - President at Waterman Sales Ltd.

We have been in Business since 1992 and had an accountant who was a family friend. When he retired, we needed to find a new accountant. Jacob at Hendry Warren was recommended to us through our Lawyer. We met with him and were impressed immediately; over the years we have gotten to know more of the staff and are equally impressed. They have done our company taxes, company valuations, share purchases, tax planning, covid relief, personal taxes, etc. All of which have gone very smoothly. Hendry Warren is aware of new legislation and has helped us grow as a company.

Testimonial from Colin Goodfellow - field_5cebff5066bfc

I have used Marie Fraser and her team at Hendry Warren for business, personal and special projects. Deep enough bench strength to cover anything, and small enough to pay attention.
