PRESS RELEASE: BMO Global Asset Management Sees Renewed Potential in Commodity Sector Equities

July 23, 2013, 10:01 a.m. EDT

Don Coxe of Coxe Advisors to Speak at CFA Institute’s Financial Analysts Seminar

CHICAGO, IL, Jul 23, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Investors may recall that the commodities-driven Toronto Stock Exchange was a star performer for an extended period in the mid-2000s. Since then, this asset class, which had benefited from strong global growth during the early years of this century, has languished. In particular, gold stocks have been unloved and unwanted, though they should benefit from widespread and aggressive printing of money by the world’s central banks.

For thoughtful investors, there is reason to believe the “Commodities Supercycle” is far from over, advises Don Coxe, Chairman, Coxe Advisors LLP. The global commodities and equity investment strategist is a key advisor to BMO Global Asset Management and a member of BMO Financial Group. Coxe will deliver this message as a featured speaker at the CFA Institute’s 2013 Financial Analysts Seminar, which begins today in Chicago. Coxe will present on Wednesday, July 24.

“Commodity prices are, in general, close to where they were in 2007, but the stock prices of their producers are back to where they were in 2004,” explained Coxe. “That presents an opportunity for long-term investors.” He also noted that, “Gold, the financial antimatter to inflation, presents a great opportunity, and the disillusionment with mining stocks appears to us to be nearing an inflection point.”

Hosted by the CFA Society Chicago (, analysts from all around the world have come to this annual event for more than five decades to immerse themselves in the latest investment ideas and tools. Through a combination of interactive lectures, group discussions, case studies, and informal gatherings, seminar participants come away with fresh thinking on a variety of investment disciplines.
