The only 3 resources stocks to pass AusEthical’s filters
The ASX is a resources heavy exchange, materials is the second largest sector accounting for ~25% of the ASX200. For many investors this deep pool of companies drawing on Australia’s mineral endowment is a fertile hunting ground.
“It’s got a very heavy environmental footprint at the extraction phase. There’s a great deal of rehabilitation that has to go on. Then when we look at things like fossil fuels, we just don’t invest in fossil fuel companies.”
To Murray's point, there are 62 resource companies in the ASX300, of those the firm own just three across their domestic strategies. While investors shouldn’t expect to get a big materials exposure through AusEthical the sector is not void of opportunity.
In this short video, Murray shares three materials stocks that made it into the firm’s portfolios.
