KinAlberta Posted March 10, 2015 Share Posted March 10, 2015 I'm wondering what companies people have encountered that are employing various hedging strategies in anticipation of a significant downturn of some sort. (eg. Hussman's warned of major market retracement.) Also companies that have large cash balances are always interesting but my experience in buying such companies in the lead up to the 2008/2009 crisis was that this was a wasted effort as few such companies seemed to actually do anything with that cash when that opportunity arose. I did better buying them in the depths the crisis doubling up on them, than buying in advance of that market dip. I'm not normally a big fan of buying into such companies but would love to see a list to ponder over if a market started to slip. Of course, I'd consider Fairfax Financial as one such company.
