The Rules of Investing

Aboud: What I'd buy in a market crash

The Rules of Investing

Livewire Markets

At some point in their lives, most people have lusted after a dream item, but been unwilling or unable to justify the price tag. Whether it’s a car, jewellery, or luxury holiday there's a point at which the price is too high to justify. But then, the retailer suddenly announces a big sale that brings it within reach.

Buying stocks is no different. Quality comes at a price, but occasionally the entire equity market goes on sale - allowing you to snap up your dream stocks at a discount.

In this week’s episode of The Rules of Investing, Anthony Aboud from Perpetual shares two companies that he’d love to buy the next time stocks go on sale. We also discuss his large overweight position in Commonwealth Bank, what he looks for in a compelling short candidate, and the company results he’s most interested to read this February.
