Why Invesco is a Great Investment
Despite the rally, stocks are still down 5% from the January peak. But Invesco, it is down around 15%, which Barron's argues presents a great buying opportunity. Invesco's mutual fund business will earn less income if stocks fall, but unlike others, it may be a big beneficiary of the next bear market. Two reasons for this include Invesco having a strong balance sheet to make low-priced acquisitions when times are tough (as it did during the Crisis) and the fact that it has a great smart beta business, which should do well in tough times. The stock currently trades at a 44% discount to BlackRock on an earnings multiple basis, making the price attractive.
FINSUM : Invesco seems like it would be good to use in a pair trade in a down turn as its relative performance should be better than competitors.
