In by EquityMatesLeave a Comment

We were joined by Chris Wheldon, Portfolio Manager at Magellan Financial Group. Chris re-joined Magellan in 2018 and is a Portfolio Manager of Magellan’s High Conviction Strategy and an Assistant Portfolio Manager on the Global Equities Strategies. 

We had Chris on the show earlier this year and loved hearing him explain his thought process and how he formed an investment thesis. So we asked him to come back on the show and share his specific thesis for three stocks he currently holds.

In this interview, Chris shares:

  • His thoughts on the market’s rebound from the COVID-induced crash
  • How Magellan responded in the early days of the pandemic
  • How he is thinking about investing during the market’s recovery
  • A deep dive on three specific stocks: Facebook, Visa and Tencent
