(A Top Pick Dec 4/14. Down 18.89%.) Just sold it in September at around $47 and $48. The stock tends to move with bond yields, and they are not moving higher just yet. Still cheap at 9X forward earnings. If you want more of a stable movement and a 3.4% dividend, this is a good name to own.

(A Top Pick Dec 4/14. Down 6.66%.) Looking at the chart, this stock tends to move around quite a bit. It is undervalued in terms of where it is trading at, 9X forward earnings and a 7% growth rate. Pays a 3% dividend. When 10 year government yields move up, this stock moves up as well.

Rising interest rates should be good for them. So far the market has really not played into this. This scores middle of the pack on all his metrics. He would prefer Manulife (MFC-T).

One of the most broadly diversified insurance companies. Very cheap trading at a 9X multiple and has high capital ratios. This name should do very well, particularly if there are rising interest rates and rising markets. Dividend yield of 2.97%.

It has come under pressure. It has good exposure if rates were to rise. It has the potential to return capital. It looks attractive to him here at this price.

They have had to put away billions of dollars in reserves, partly because they are domiciled in New York state. New York State is one of the toughest regulatory climates of any state in the US. Valuation is extremely low and the business as well diversified. Trades at 9.1X forward earnings, so it is very cheap. Dividend yield of 3.11%.

If a person wants to participate in the trend of rising interest rates, life insurance companies in particular tend to be very well positioned. An interesting way to play that trend. He prefers US banks better because of lower multiples with more room for improvement. Banks also get more benefit from improving housing markets.

Metlife (MET-N) or American International Group (AIG-N)? These are 2 relatively different companies. AIG does have a large life insurance component, but MetLife is almost all life insurance. Looking of valuations, they are both pretty attractive. When interest rates eventually start moving up, this one will probably outperform AIG. Both valuations are pretty cheap.

Metlife (MET-N) or Manulife (MFC-T). Which has a better upside? All things being equal, and if she liked both of them equally, she would prefer the Canadian stock because of the currency.

This appears to be a bit undervalued to other insurers. The largest life insurer and one of the largest insurance and financial services companies in the US. As the recovery in the US economy continues and the labour market gets better, that will provide a catalyst to share price given the greater demand for insurance and investment products. If interest rates move up, that is also good for life insurers. Stock is trading at 9.5X PE forward with 10%-12% long-term growth. Pretty decent valuation. Yield of 2.55%.

Feels this is a decent name, but his favourite name in the US insurance space would be the property/casualty insurer Allstate (ALL-N).

(A Top Pick Oct 15/13. Up 3.83%.) He sees lower interest rates on the horizon. It is trading below his last fundamental line of $55.54 so he would only recommend this if it traded above that mark.
