His model price is $74, a 36% upside. In the financials, you have to be patient with them, but they are in merging out of the financial crisis and the market is giving their A-OK in the sense of beginning to like what is on their balance sheet. Yield of 2.03%.

Replace this with American International Group (AIG-N)? The whole area of property/casualty insurance represents good value. Why not own both? Why not split your Met Life position into 2 and buy a position in AIG. Gives you a little bit of diversification.

Likes life insurers in general. Fundamentals in the business have improved and have recovered a significant amount from where they were 2 years ago. At this level, the stock is probably just going to go sideways.

Likes life insurance companies but he has chosen to own Canadian ones. US companies trade at a slightly better valuation and are cheaper than Canadians. A good name if you want US exposure in this area.

(A Top Pick April 2/13. Up 31.93%.) The price of the stock is up a fair bit, but so are profits. There is still room for both earnings growth and multiple appreciation. If US 10 year and long-term bonds don’t stay at 2.75%-3.75% forever, the profitability of all lifecos is going to go up very, very substantially over the next few years. Still a Buy.

How do you determine an exit point for insurance companies? To determine an exit point, you can trade the technicals. On any kind of serious pullback, this is a sector that you want to seriously own. This company has improving ROE’s and earnings growth. Cash flows are rising. Still very cheap at about 1X Book.

The only difference between this and the Canadian lifecos is that the Canadians are trading at 1.4X BV and 2.1X BV. This one is trading at 85 basis points. High-quality insurance company. Improving ROEs. Expects very strong earnings over the next 12 months. It should benefit from higher bond yields. Buy this while it is still trading below BV.

Great company and has been doing very well. He knows Canadian lifecos better and this is what he invests in. Believes Canadian financial managers are superior than their US counterparts. A rising yield curve is the friend of lifecos so they should be bought and held.
