Great West Lifeco(GWO-T) 

April 8, 2019

If you look at '07/08 you will get something similar in the next recession. With low interest rates they will not do well. This one has not grown for years nor made money for anyone.

COMMENT
Great West Lifeco(GWO-T) 

December 21, 2018

General opinion of the sector The insurance group had run up earlier in the year as longer term interest rates were expected to rise. However, as short term rates have risen faster this has taken the wind out of the sails. There is still more upside in rates and with yields of 5%, it is a good long term holding. The MFC-T lawsuit over long term contracts will create uncertainty.

TOP PICK
Great West Lifeco(GWO-T) 

November 28, 2018

As rates rise, lifecos do well. GWL is now a value pick with low volatility. He likes its middling price momentum and solid 21% ROE. 1.4x price to book (vs. historic 2x), and trades at 7x earnings. Pays 5% yield and deecnt payout ratio. But they need to show they can redeploy capital into growth--they got the balance sheet to do that. (Analysts’ price target is $34.50)

All lifecos have underperformed. GWL has great assets in Canada, but Putnam Investments in the U.S. has been a drag on them. That said, lifecos are steady and will benefit from rising interest rates. She prefers others in this space.

August 9, 2018

He owns Prudential instead. Should be a terrific time to own an insurer, but it’s not. Flattening yield curve is hurting them. Would wait to see movement in the long rates before buying. US should kick rates higher, which should help. Own the banks, which automatically benefit from growth.

You expect all lifecos to do well on a rising interest rate environment. It is surprising that we haven’t had the big trade on the lifecos. He will gravitate toward banks more than lifecos now. He feels uncomfortable with the group at the moment.

At these levels he is predisposed towards lifecos. They underperformed the market, but things are setting up better for them with rising interest rates. He prefers Manulife Financial Corporation (MFC-T) but both are good long-term investments.

This is a good space. High dividends. Growth. Positive demographics. Doesn't know GWF as well as Sunlife or Manulife, but should get moderate to strong returns.

Having a multiyear low in long-term interest rates last June, this is likely to creep higher for many years. Looking at insurance companies, rising rates are good for them. Being in a pretty good equity market, equity returns help the insurance industry. It’s a group he is quite interested in, and they could do well for many years. If he had to pick a Canadian insurer, he would probably pick Manulife (MFC-T) as the leader in the group. Technically it is acting the best and has a great global footprint with great growth in Asia. We are in a bull market, so you don’t want to buy a company that is not going up yet.

COMMENT
Great West Lifeco(GWO-T) 

November 13, 2017

The most conservative of the 3 lifecos in Canada. A lot of their business is more utilitarian, and they don’t take some of the risks the others do. As a result, they perform better across negative markets, but the leveraged companies have been doing better. They bought Putnam Funds in Boston, and have had difficulty getting that turned around. With Power Financial (PWF-T) you get this company at a discount of about 17%. He would use Power Financial instead.

BUY on WEAKNESS

GWO-T vs. MFC-T.  MFC-T has the advantage of being a very diversified company, globally.  They have done well from that diversification.  He tends to prefer it to GWO-T, although he might use its weakness to buy.

This has always been one of the most profitable of the large life insurers. If you think we are going into a rising interest rate environment, the insurers are the ones who can benefit greatly. He would prefer owning Power Financial (PWF-T) over this because of its diversification, but also increases in dividends.

Great West Life (GWO-T), Sun Life (SLF-T) or Manulife (MFC-T)? He has quite a bit of exposure to life insurance right now through Manulife and Sun Life, and they both look very attractive. Interest rates are likely going to work their way slowly higher over the next several years.

Great West Life (GWO-T), Sun Life (SLF-T) or Manulife (MFC-T)? This depends on quality and size, but if you are thinking of just keeping it very safe, Manulife and Sun Life would be the 2 he would zoom in on.
