Raymond James

The right advice starts with a trusted relationship.

We believe financial advice is about more than just having a plan. It’s about having the right plan for you. And that only happens with a true understanding of your whole life, beyond just your finances. Because as your needs become more complex, sophisticated advice and a relationship built for the long term become even more important.

ESG During Pandemic Times

Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing has been a headline subject over the past couple years in the Canadian retail landscape. Many investment firms are considering, or are already in the process of, integrating an ESG framework into their practices as availability of data sets and sharing of best practices expands. The trend has been driven by a variety reasons. We are not looking to delve into the ABC’s of ESG per se; rather we highlight how the ESG landscape has progressed through a thus-far tumultuous 2020. In particular, we’ll look to see whether one of the biggest market meltdowns in modern history has caused investors to move away from ESG funds and how ESG funds performed so far this year.

Post-COVID Themes

The more things change, the more things stay the same. While there is no question we will experience changes in how we live, work and play, the most significant impacts of COVID-19 will be simply to accelerate trends that were already in place prior to the crisis. Through either herd immunity or the successful creation of a vaccine, life will slowly return to normalcy, but the pandemic will undoubtedly present new opportunities for some industries and challenges for others. There will be winners and losers borne out of this crisis, which based on our current understanding, we outline throughout this publication.

Earnings Recap

US earnings season is in its final throws with ~90% of S&P 500 companies reporting Q1 results. The impact of COVID-19 towards the latter half of Q1 was enough to push earnings growth well into the red. Recall, in 2019 S&P 500 earnings growth was essential flat (grew 1.5% yoy) while the market itself managed to gain ~30%. With no earnings growth, 2019’s impressive gains came from price-earnings (PE) multiple expansion, not from an improvement in earnings.
