A financial group that he’s invested in the past. However, things have gone sideways recently. The two eras have moved out of the company which was rewarded by the markets. He would prefer banks with better yields in some cases.

PWF is a holding that she has for the income. PWF and POW are going to merge, which is driving up the value of both today. The merger is one way to close the gap between market valuations of the two. There is some thought the dividend will increase and the new entity plans to buy back shares. She will continue to hold as it an income stock. The yield is still over 5%.

A bit of a gamble, he admits. The heirs of the company haven't done much. The book value has climbed steadily. All it needs is somebody to take charge of this company. It's dormant. You're paid a good yield while waiting. (Analysts’ price target is $33.81)

He does not like the performance. He bought it in 2015 with the expectation that they would resume their dividend increase trend but the stock went nowhere. It is hard for him to recommend it for growth.

A function of how GreatWest Life does. GWO had a solid earnings that helps them. He expects 5% earnings per share growth. It's cheap at 8.8x with a well covered dividend. Not exciting but you can get dividend growth.

A subsidiary of Power Corp. Power Financial gives direct exposure to Great West Life, Investors Group and Mackenzie Investments. The insurance business is tough right now as they require actuarial returns of 6% per year, which they used to be able to do with bonds when interest rates were higher. Margins are narrowing as well. It is a stock that pays a great dividend and it should provide high single-digit returns each year including the dividend. You could buy it on weakness.

He prefers SLF-T. PWF-T always looks cheap. He wants not just great dividend yield but growth. He wants 10% to qualify for him to do the research. Negative interest rates just don't work.

PWF or POW? He would prefer Power Financial as it trades to a discount to the parent. He is not a big fan of the Investors Group and Great West Life. He would look towards others in the space -- preferably the Canadian banks instead.

For a long-term investor The stock has been sideways for a decade, though it pays a decent, safe dividend. The same goes with POW-T. It's a defensive stock during a recession. Otherwise, don't expect growth going forward.
