If you don’t like the way they allocate money, you can move to POW-T.  He sees a bit of a rally in PWF-T so play it out.  If it gets up to highs, you might trim it back.  There is nothing wrong with the decent yield.

2017-01-19 TOP PICK Ross Healy

They own an insurance company and a mutual fund company.  Both have good yields. They should benefit from rising interest rates.  All together it is so cheap that you have to tuck it away and enjoy the dividend while you wait for a nice big gain. (Analysts’ target: $35.00).

2016-12-28 PAST TOP PICK Norman Levine

(A Top Pick Nov 27/15. Up 6.07%.) This is a laggard in the Canadian financials. Its biggest assets are Great West Life and Investors Group. The drag on the stock has really been Great West Life, where a lot of its business is in England and Europe. As interest rates are going up, it is starting to perform.

2016-11-08 COMMENT Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

Reporting in a short while, and is not seen anything to get too excited about, or what the catalyst is besides higher rates. Not his favourite space. In pure insurance, he would be looking at a Sun Life (SLF-T) or Canadian Banks. Mutual fund companies are having a real tough go and are facing more redemptions, and will probably continue to do so.

2016-11-03 HOLD Barry Schwartz

Prefers Power Corp. (POW-T) as you get more assets, and is trading at a deeper discount than this. If you own one or the other, he would just Hold. The company is completely misunderstood by the market. At some point insurance assets are going to get a re-rating and a better market value. There is potential for the stock to go higher as it is mispriced right now. 5% dividend yield.

2016-10-25 COMMENT Colin Stewart

A well-run company. If you have a very long time horizon, it is probably a good one to own. A cautionary note would be on their exposure to the asset management business, the mutual fund business in particular, which is going to come under increasing pressure over time.

2016-10-20 COMMENT Jason Del Vicario

A very diversified financial company. This would almost be in the “forever hold” category. ROE is in the low teens, below what he would look for. A very, very consistent company. Dividend yield of 5%. He doesn’t own any financial companies right now, but if you want to own a financial, this would be a good one.

2016-10-11 PAST TOP PICK Ross Healy

(A Top Pick Oct 20/15. Up 2.45%.) One of those stocks that is cheap, but the response has been “So what?”, which has generally been the response, not only to this company, but a lot of high-value stocks. It is still good value and has a nice yield.

2016-10-07 COMMENT David Cockfield

Has liked this in the past, but is not as enthused at this point in time. The dividend is safe. However, they have a lot of mutual fund assets in their portfolio, and he really thinks that ETF’s are the death knell for mutual funds.

2016-10-04 COMMENT Bruce Murray

Just bought this in both his dividend and Canadian equity funds. Although rates are going to gradually move higher, the insurance companies will benefit more than the banks, and people with US assets will benefit more. Pays a nice dividend yield.

2016-09-23 COMMENT Greg Newman

Power Financial (PWF-T) or Power Corp. (POW-T)? This is basically a function of Investors Group, Mackenzie Financial and Great West Life. If you want a pure play, he feels you should go with this. It pays a bigger dividend, and believes it is trading at a bigger discount to its 10-year historical average. Likes both, but sees this as having 6% annual dividend growth over the next couple of years, decent earnings growth, and trading at about a 19% discount.

2016-09-16 SELL William Chin

This has basically been stuck in a big, big range and is going nowhere. Recently it has made a series of lower highs, which is not a good sign. It means sellers are willing to accept lower prices. At around $29-$30, it seems to have made several bottoms, but the more times these test support, the more likely it will break. It means the sellers are saying they don’t care that there have been buyers before, they still want to Sell.

2016-09-09 BUY Norman Levine

A financial holding company of the Demarais family. It holds controlling interest in Great West Life (GWO-T) and IGM along with Putnam Financial in the US along with a lot of European assets. The stock has lagged, mainly because Great West Life is a lifeco which have not performed as well the banks. When interest rates go up, the lifecos will perform better.

2016-08-31 TOP PICK Mohsin Bashir

An unloved, but diversified business. They are in the process of diversifying even more. A lot of their recent acquisitions, such as Borrowell and Wealthsimple, although small can actually be considerably disruptive to the investment industry. They are tied to robo-revisery services. Dividend yield of 5.2%.
