COMMENT
Metlife (MET-N)

Versus American banks?He likes US banks versus insurance companies. Banks are in a much better position to deliver earnings growth, versus some of the insurers. Insurers, both in Canada and US, do a little better when interest rates go up. Their liabilities go down and they also get a better return on assets. There is better risk/reward on the banks.

COMMENT
Metlife (MET-N)

He likes the insurance companies in the US. This recently did a spinoff of their smaller financial division. It has recently spiked over the last couple of months. Trading at 11X earnings with a decent growth rate. Insurance companies, particularly in the US, are going to move along with what is going to happen with interest rates. He likes insurance companies, but wouldn’t ignore large US banks. Dividend yield of 3%.

PAST TOP PICK
Metlife (MET-N)

(A Top Pick Nov 8/16. Up 12%.) One of the biggest financial companies in the US. In late July, they spun out their consumer division, which he took advantage of. He still likes the outlook for this company.

COMMENT
Metlife (MET-N)

Not expensive, trading at about 10X earnings and has a very good dividend yield of about 3.4%. They sold Bright House, and can now concentrate on their core business. They need to bring costs down by about $1 billion, and he thinks there will be better capital allocation between dividends and buybacks. All in all, you should see the stock price go up.

COMMENT
Metlife (MET-N)

MetLife, Prudential or the American banks? He would give a bit of a nod towards the banks. As a general proposition, there are more ways the banks can boost earnings. The purchase of insurance is very much out of favour. Regarding MetLife versus Prudential, he would give a slight nod to Prudential as they have been doing some cost cutting which will help their bottom line.

PAST TOP PICK
Metlife (MET-N)

(A Top Pick Oct 11/16. Up 17.29%.) The old high for this stock is quite a bit higher than it is right now, so 17% doesn’t cut the ice for him. Kind of a drop in the bucket.

They have this amazing franchise and could just never quite get all the wheels spinning in the same direction at the same time. He thinks they have now found a little more religion in that sense. Earnings numbers coming out of the life group have not been so bad. Technically, the chart shows a nice cup, which is not a bad formation. They have a very good core franchise. Thinks you can hang onto your holdings and you will realize some value.

His model price is $73.24, representing an upside of 30%. In a rising interest rate environment, this is a sector that you can hide in. Dividend yield of 2.9% (Analysts’ price target is $60.)

COMMENT
Metlife (MET-N)

One of the blue-chip, Cadillac financial service companies. These companies have struggled during this very low interest rate environment. Ultimately, over the next 2-3 years, interest rates will be higher, which is manna from heaven for companies like this. They are taking some strategic initiatives to break off parts of their retail annuity business into a separate company. That would help to unlock value.

COMMENT
Metlife (MET-N)

All the lifecos need higher rates. They have obligations 5-25 years out. Most obligations were entered into when rates were higher. Because of that, there is a mismatch. That is why you see lifecos having to take capital hits on their balance sheets. We don’t know when that is going to end.

A very attractive 3 to 5 year play. Looking at insurance companies, this would be the top, if not one of the top 2 you would want to hold. They have lots of money and are in good shape. Very, very solid.

Interest rates help insurance companies.  He likes this industry and this stock, but it will not get the growth you want, but it will grow its dividend.  It is a good way to diversify within the financial sector.

BUY
Metlife (MET-N)

An American lifeco? He likes US life insurers a little more than the Canadian companies. However, they’ve both come down in the last little while, given that yields have come off. The one he owns and still likes is MetLife (MET-N). Shares are trading at under 1X BV, one of the cheaper ones among the large cap names.

BUY
Metlife (MET-N)

MetLife (MET-N) or Prudential Life (PRU-N)? When you are building a diversified portfolio, within financials, if you own a bank, only 1 or 2 lifecos is just as good. He can’t really choose between these 2, and in fact would own both of them. Both are going to move in similar directions, and both will benefit from rising interest rates.

TOP PICK
Metlife (MET-N)

It would definitely benefit from higher interest rates, which we are ahead for this year.  The stock is cheap.  It does not have much of a dividend because they were dissuaded from paying one.  (Analysts’ target: $59.50).
