insurance
WEAK BUY
GWO vs. POW Holding company. Streamlined structure. Depends if you like the insurance business or not. He prefers to own the top company, rather than the underlying businesses. GWO is a great business. You'll do well with either of them.
insurance
BUY
The lifecos have all pulled back because of higher interest rates. GWO is solid and will be relatively defensive if there is a recession. The dividend is safe. The valuation is now attractive.
insurance
BUY on WEAKNESS
Has a strong long term growth profile. Is well-run, global, trades a a single-digit PE and pays over a 6% dividend. Buy during current market weakness.
insurance
DON'T BUY
Lifecos have not been performing. Yes, rates are rising, but not at the long end of the curve, like 10-30 years. Their asset portfolio is getting hurt by rising rates, too, as reflected in quarterly reports.
insurance
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Oct 12/21, Down 12%) Even today, his top income pick. Healthy dividend yield, low valuation. Yield about 6%, PE around 10x, pretty reasonable growth profile. A bit less sensitive to equity markets.
insurance
DON'T BUY
It has under-performed the group and he doesn't see much future momentum or closing of the gap to its peers. He holds Manulife instead since it has held up well and has much better growth potential as well as Asian exposure. Manulife has a great dividend yield of 5.6%
insurance
WEAK BUY
Insurance companies as a group are down 20% YTD, while the TSX is down around 12%. Weaker economy hurts. Question is whether it's overly reflected in the sector? GWO tends to trade at a premium, clean earnings. He'd buy the sector, given the nice dividends and low valuations. Second half won't be as bad as the first. He'd go with MFC, trading at 6.5x earnings. Second choice SLF, third GWO.
insurance
WEAK BUY
GWO vs. MFC vs. SLF He looks at price to book. MFC is one of the cheapest names out there. GWO is trading at 1.17x, whereas MFC is at 0.87x. SLF is more expensive at 1.4x, but you get the heavier wealth management arm and more exposure to Asia. No issue with it, pretty high and secure dividend at 6.3%. On a combination of growth and valuation, he likes MFC more. GWO is on par with SLF as a pick.
insurance
BUY
A solid insurer, but it trades at a premium to peers because it's less volatile. Pays a nice dividend and they are well capitalized to ride out economic uncertainties. A solid income name.
insurance
WEAK BUY
All Canadian lifecos are down. This pays a 6.4% dividend, safe. Definite value here. Price to book is only 1.17x. Prefers Manulife for its growth, though, and pays a 6% dividend.
insurance
DON'T BUY
Shares are down, but dividends are higher. They're controlled by Power Corp and underperform. So, he prefers Sun Life as well as telcos like BCE and Telus, if you want dividends--and it's a great time to buy dividend stocks.
insurance
BUY
Considered using as a Top Pick today. Undervalued at 8x earnings, 6% dividend yield, very strong capital base. Growth platform more focused on more mature markets of NA and Europe. Well run. Good company. A buy here.
insurance
Unspecified
Its fair market value is very strong with lots of upside potential and a great yield. Rising interest rates should help insurance companies make money on their reserves. As a value stock it is very cheap. Would be even better at $29 to $30.
