The lifecos are attractive after this correction. Solid businesses. SLF has a big U.S. asset management operation. But she prefers (and owns) MFC which has a better valuation. In the past. SLF's earnings have outgrown MFC's, but MFC's should outpace SLF's going forward. MFC trades at a discount to SLF.

SLF-T vs. MET-N. He prefers Sunlife (SLF-T). It is higher quality and more defensive. Also they are down with the sector. There is more competition in the US vs. Canada.

PAST TOP PICK
Sun Life Financial Inc(SLF-T) 

December 10, 2018

(A Top Pick Oct 25/17, Down 6%) Still likes it. (Though, he prefers Manulife now with a lower multiple.) SLF is a good buy today than when he picked it. Lifecos will do well as interest rates rise.

Reasonable dividend, though not as good as the banks. If you want a financial outside of the banks, this would be his choice in the space. Yield is just over 4%.

They are still guiding for 8-10% earnings growth. They are stable. They should be able to grow the dividend 4-5% a year. It is off along with the market. This and MFC-T are global companies now. MFC-T looks cheaper so he would buy that over SLF-T, which is trading at a 10% premium to its market multiple. Don't sell it.

Q3 beat--earnings were way up. Double-digit growth in the US. Asia operations were a lower weak. 4% EPS growth only. Pricey vs. peers. Manulife has a better growth rate, and he prefers MFC. The lawsuit they face--MFC will be okay.

PARTIAL BUY
It has followed the trends of the financial sector to some degree. It looks solid where it is right now. It is making money. It is probably better value than it was in the summer. Take a small position, or the XFN-T ETF to diversify, preferably. If it drops below $47 there is not much support below that. There is resistance at $51.

It is a pretty safe company with a reasonable dividend.  He would not buy it until there is a blow off.  Insider selling has been very heavy.  It is a leader in the Canadian field.  If you want to put it away, it is a good one for that purpose.

COMMENT

Unsure why it's dropped a lot lately, but he likes the fundamentals of the insurers. Interest rates are rising and people are living longer, so the lifecos can collect premiums for longer. There is rotation between lifecos and banks, and that
could be happening now. Thinks SLF is the best Canadian insurance stock and believes in the insurance industry long-term.

BUY on WEAKNESS

He recently evaluated this space. As interest rates increase their long term liabilities should become more profitable.  They are cleaning up their operational issues.  He hopes there will be a market pullback, so they might be able to step back in. He actually prefers Manulife (MFC-T), but is watching both. He would love to buy both of these if the stock prices drop by $5.

TOP PICK

He considers this a healthy yield that is likely to grown. It trades at only 11x earnings. It will be a beneficiary of rising interest rates, which he expects to continue. He expects 10% earnings growth for the next 3 years. This is the largest foreign insurer in Asia (India), which offers huge growth possibilities. Its MFS American operations have turned around. Yield 3.8%. (Analysts’ price target $58.54)

The expectation is that the rate is going to invert next year. That is not good for banks and particularly bad for insurance companies. If you believe that next year is the great inversion, you don’t want to own any financials. Avoid.

He likes the life insurance industry and owns three companies in that space. Sun Life is the Canadian company that he likes. He prefers it to Manulife. He thinks it is better managed, with better exposure to interest rates. He likes the amount and quality of international diversification of Sun Life.

Today, everything in financials rallied, including the lifecos. Rising rates benefit them. But the US banks look better. Instead, look at the ETF, KIE-N, to give you a basket of insurance companies. Today it broke new highs. SLF isn't the best house in a very good neighbourhood.
