With markets taking a serious beating due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s worth considering what might be getting lost in the noise.

You’re likely aware of how the spread of COVID-19 has affected stock markets throughout the world. After hitting all-time highs in mid-February, the MSCI World Index and the S&P 500 dropped dramatically as the virus made its way into airports, communities and news headlines.

We don’t really know how long the world will be impacted, but is it possible that there are investment opportunities hidden in indiscriminate market sell-offs?

This piece by Orbis Investments assesses some of the negative impacts of recent market downturns, but also investigates how drops in share prices for some companies may actually be disproportionate to their long-term fundamentals.

In the piece, you will learn:

  • how COVID-19 has affected markets throughout the world
  • how a contrarian approach can lead to “opportunities in the eye of the storm”
  • what potential new investment ideas are emerging during this crisis
