2017-07-24 WAIT Don Vialoux

It has a period of strength from September to December each year.  We are still in a downward trend and it is forming a base.  It is too early to consider it from a seasonal perspective.  Take another look in the fall.

2017-07-19 COMMENT Veronika Hirsch

Insurance is not one of her favourite sectors. Ever since the chatter started with Manulife (MFC-T) and what they might do to offload some of the US assets, this has interested her. If she were to buy an insurance company, it would probably be Manulife today.

2017-07-14 COMMENT Robert McWhirter

Canadian banks are starting to appear in his “okay to buy” list, but lifecos have not shown up yet. His ranking is 122 out of 720, but when looking at earnings and cash flow, both have been negative on a year-over-year basis.

2017-07-13 COMMENT Paul Harris, CFA

You have to believe rates are going to go up substantially over the next little while. This is not an expensive stock and has a great dividend yield. A much more complicated product than being a house insurance policy. They don’t have a presence in Asia like Manulife (MFC-T).

2017-06-26 COMMENT Peter Brieger

Prefers Manulife (MFC-T), although the earnings are not terribly different, but Manulife is somewhat cheaper, and also is very well-placed to benefit from the growth in Asia.

2017-06-23 COMMENT David Cockfield

A very well-managed company. The market problems lately, particularly on the Canadian side, has held them back. They have a good product. This is a long-term hold. Good product spread. Dividend yield of 3.9%.

2017-06-07 COMMENT Michael Sprung

He likes both this and Manulife (MLF-T), and if he were buying today, it would probably be Manulife. Manulife is trading at 1.2X book as opposed to Sun Life of 1.4X. We are in a good environment for insurance companies.

2017-05-31 BUY Michael Simpson, CFA

A well-run insurance company, with global operations. The last quarter was a little disappointing, with some outflows in their US asset manager. Overall, he likes this and buys it on weakness. Good dividend. Good Asian growth.

He is disappointed in this right now. Most people are pointing to a weakness in the US for the decline in the last couple of months.

2017-05-24 COMMENT Zachary Curry

Had a tough Go in their last quarter with a lot of redemptions in the US on the mutual fund side. He would prefer Manulife (MFC-T) which has a stronger exposure to Asia. Also, their core business of selling insurance is going very well. He doesn’t own either. Dividend yield of 3.9%.

2017-05-16 COMMENT Lorne Steinberg

Canadian Banks versus lifecos? He is a bigger fan of the lifecos. Manulife (MFC-T) and Sun Life (SLF-T) are going to get a big boost from rising interest rates. It is already starting to happen. The yield curve is steepening. Lifecos have been suffering and living with low interest rates for a long time. Both companies are also quite global. They have big presences in the US and in Asia. He sees a better earnings growth over the next few years.

2017-05-16 COMMENT Christine Poole

She owns and prefers Manulife (MFC-T), which will have a chance to do some catch-up. Manulife's earnings are finally coming through, and she likes their positioning in Asia. Also, has traded at a discount to Sun Life, but going forward, she feels Manulife will have better earnings.

2017-04-20 TOP PICK Lorne Zeiler

Compared to the other insurers, their valuation is more reasonable at 7.6X earnings. Recently they’ve provided their medium-term outlook, looking at 8%-10% earnings growth per year. Very stable name. Dividend yield of 3.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $54.)

2017-04-19 COMMENT David Burrows

Financials are a theme we are going to be focused on for the next number of years. Insurance, banking and investment dealers all do well when long-term rates are rising. We turned a long-term corner on interest rates at the beginning of last year, and reversed a 30-year trend to lower rates. This is not going to be a straight line. You own this because you like their asset management and wealth management businesses. In the last couple of months, long term rates have pulled back a little, so the whole insurance sector has been under some pressure. He prefers Manulife (MFC-T) from a technical perspective, as well as some US companies. However, you should do well with the whole group.

2017-04-18 HOLD John Stephenson

This has had some struggles lately, mainly with its asset management division. Institutional money and redemptions have been fairly high for several quarters. All in all, it has been a pretty bright light for the company, which is sort of a surprise. Eventually it will get back on track, but it needs that catalyst to move higher.
