“In 2006, Google bought YouTube, the leader in on-line video with tiny advertising revenue, for $1.65 billion. At the time, people thought they were nuts and nearly 100% of the opinions on the acquisition were negative. Currently YouTube grosses more ad dollars than any TV network and this week we heard an analyst forecast potential revenues for YouTube of $100 billion in 2026. What would it cost to build YouTube today? What would it cost to buy YouTube today? Understanding that there are businesses out there today that can go from 1 to a 100 billion over time is at the heart of how we look at things on the long side. Finding them at the right price relative to the future opportunity is what we try to do everyday.”

It’s probably clear to many that we are strong believers in investing in good companies for the long term – we feel this is a solid investment strategy. However, we are fortunate to be part of a firm that facilitates the use of options, adding a valuable layer of protection for portfolios as well.

Recurring worry about the debt ceiling limit caused US stock markets to drop, with the S&P 500 down 4.7% in September, basically giving back the gains they made in August.

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis in 2007-08, booming commodity prices helped propel the loonie above parity. Our dollar then declined to about 70 cents US in 2015 due to falling oil prices, a strong US dollar and a rising-rate environment in the US. And now, six years later, the loonie has clawed its way back to relevance.

Tech companies shot higher than most others from their March 2020 lows as it became clear that their businesses were better suited to – even benefitted from – the shift to “work from home.”

The last year has been terrible on nearly every level. But it’s easy to see the potential for the economy to burst out of the starting gate like an Olympic sprinter. Americans have saved an extra $1.8 trillion during the pandemic, due to government help and lower spending. Pent up demand has been building. A rapid start to the post-pandemic economy could create a virtuous cycle in which consumers spend; companies hire and invest to fulfill that demand; and workers wind up having more money in their pockets to consume even more.

We all know 2020 was deeply challenging for many people on so many levels. But being “locked down” also provided some unexpected silver linings: the chance to spend more time with family, or to read those books for which you had not yet found the time; more time to focus on health, complete home renovations, learn new skills; and especially the opportunity to re-evaluate our own life priorities...

In the spring, we were encouraged to see how the option strategy in our Enhanced Equity Pool helped through the initial COVID turmoil. We knew we could use the same option strategy with an income pool to further protect our more conservative clients.

Millions of people remain unemployed. In some countries, new COVID-19 cases continue to rise at alarming rates. Some jurisdictions appear to have been too hasty with their re-openings and may need to reverse course by closing segments of their economies again. Most sources agree that it is highly unlikely that a vaccine will be available before next year.
