TOP PICK
Manulife Financial(MFC-T) 

August 16, 2018

This has lagged behind the banks. It has had gains in efficiency. So can maintain and grow dividend. Likes the wealth business in Asia. Thinks there will be good growth over the short to medium term. There has been solid improvements in fundamentals. Yield 3.6% (Analysts’ price target is $30.03)

August 15, 2018

It is rare when you can buy a quality company at less than 10 times earnings and 1.4 times book value with dividend and earnings growth.  They will benefit from interest rate increases.  It should be near $28-$29 in a year from now.  Yield 3.6%.  (Analysts’ price target is $30.03)

It trades slightly over book value and is cheap.  There have been several write downs in the long term care assets they hold in the US.  They will continue to hold it.  As this a very liquid stock there may be some short-sellers.  He continues to like the fundamentals going forward.

It is relatively out of favour but capital markets and interest rates are good.  It is a growth story with a lot of negatives already priced in.  (Analysts’ target: $29.21).

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Oct 5/17, Down 3%)  He expected we would have a rebound in interest rates and they would affect this one positively.  MFC-T was getting out of its US operations and moving internationally.  It went sideways.  All the values are still very much there.  He would stick with it.

Fundamentals are wonderful, great dividend. But stock hasn’t done much for last 2 years. Lot of trading at $24. Wouldn’t touch it, unless for the dividend. It’s liabilities are concerning. Strong support at $23.40, get out if goes below $23. Can’t call a trend until hits $25. The good story is irrelevant if the stock is not performing.

They announced a new focus on disclosure on their legacy portfolio and improving their efficiency ratios and becoming a leader in digital adoption. He believes this will help narrow the valuation gap. This is heap. They model a growth of 11% on earnings. (Analysts’ price target is $29.44)

No one can explain why the shares have such a trough time appreciating.  They have shifted into more wealth management.  He suggests you buy another name in the space that does go up.  He prefers the Canadian banks.

He is wondering why it is where it is.  SLF-T is on more of a tare than MFC-T.  It has a bit to do with the mix of business.  He thinks it is worth $30.  Sometimes these things happen in the market.  He owns it because the market is not efficient.  You have to have patience.

SELL ON STRENGTH

He's disappointed because it's stalled out, because all Canadian financials have, including the banks which haven't reached new highs since January. But he thinks they will all do better. Hold for now and sell on the highs in the next rally.

TOP PICK

It's been lagging its peers, largely because of new management since last fall. New management is putting more pressure of their troubled legacy businesses, namely long-term care in the U.S. They've been expanding aggressively in Asia. More importantly, they're looking at their cost-structure. They're aiming for an efficiency ratio under 50% by 2022, and currently at 55%. This means several billions in cost savings. Alaos, capital will be released from dispositions in the next few years. New management is modernizing this company. There could be some short-term pain, including write-offs, but current prices amount to exceptional value. (Analysts' price target: $29.46)

He sees $22.50 as key support.  He wonders if there is topping action on the chart.  He prefers Fairfax Financial, although it does not quite the same quality.  MFC-T has been focused on their market, but prefers Sunlife (SLF-T), which is demonstrating better technical trending.  He would suggest swapping MFC-T for SLF-T at current levels.

Since the Financial Crisis it has been a frustrating stock. The company has upside potential with the exposure in Asia and wealth management. Maybe with the new leadership it could break out and over to the new level releasing some capital. He still has faith in the longer term in the name, but it could be frustrating in the short term. (Analysts’ price target is $29.00)

TOP PICK

They gave a lot of clarity on their legacy products at their Investor Day last week. They are expanding other parts of the business to drive down the impact of legacy businesses on their overall income. Their new CEO used to run Manulife Asia, which is very high growth. Their PE multiple of 9x is very low compared to Sun Life’s 12x. Their target ROE is 13% and they achieved that in the first quarter. The company’s Price to Earnings and Price to Book will rise if ROE stays this high. (Analysts’ price target is $29.65)

SU-T vs. MFC-T.  As interest rates rise, this is better for insurance companies.  This will cease to be the case if the central banks tighten so much that it sparks a recession.  These companies get hit more during economic downturns.  Insurance companies will not do as well this late in the cycle.
