Pretty significant resistance point right now. Difficult to get above. Don't add to it now, but don't sell either. Looks OK in the short or medium term. If it gets above $54, could get to $57. If it gets down to $50, start reducing your position.

Cheap but for a reason. It is smaller and more regional in Quebec than Manulife. Probably going to stay cheaper.

The fact that interest rates have been very low had affected the insurance industry. Not an expensive stock. Trading at 9.5 times earnings. Headwinds against these businesses is where interest rates go. He would look at other players in the industry with much more diversified businesses and better chances of growing.

Doesn’t own any of the insurance companies. They’ve done well in the last little while because of what has happened with interest rates. If we continue to see this kind of interest rate environment, they will continue to do well. You probably want to wait for a pullback before buying.

This is on the life insurance side as well as money management, mutual funds, etc. Lifecos are really challenged in operating in this low interest rate environment. This doesn’t meet his criteria.
