COMMENT
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

Sun Life (SLF-T) or Manulife (MFC-T)? In a slowly rising interest rate environment, both banks and lifecos will benefit, and you want to have representation in both groups. She owns 3 banks and 1 lifeco. Both have done well. This one was lagging, but has now played a bit of catch-up. Both just reported good results. Her preference would be this because she likes their Asian exposure, which will be a faster growth market.

COMMENT
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

This is one he likes. If you have tracked this over the past year, you will notice that numbers, quarter by quarter, have been increasing. The numbers continue to track upwards. There is probably still room to grow. They are very big in asset management and continue to expand there.

COMMENT
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

Sell bank stocks and put it into Manulife?She likes Manulife, because she feels the new management team will be more aggressive in selling off some of the assets that are not a good fit or are not growing as fast. Her feeling is that they will sell assets as opposed to selling off the whole John Hancock company. They are doing really, really well in Asia. A unique way of playing Asia. This is probably going to be her biggest weighting after they report. The growth of Manulife could possibly be better than the banks.

PAST TOP PICK
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

(A Past Top Pick Oct 28/16, Up 42%)  He still likes it quite a bit but it will not do the same this year.  There will be a hiccup due to hurricanes this year but there should be a dividend increase in 2018.

TOP PICK
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

He sees more upside (10-15%).  Be careful because they report the third quarter a week today and there will be some onetime charges that he knows about, not everyone in the market does.  There may be $0.50 downside and that would be when to buy it.  (Analysts’ target: $28.00).

WATCH
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

A great long term compounder but short term it is outperforming in Asia-pacific.  That is caused by a desire for nationals to get money out of the country so he is suspicious of the growth going forward.  It is It is a long term opportunity but he is not bullish short term.  It is doing a great job in Canada and the US looks to be on track.

COMMENT
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

Had a pretty nice run some months ago. His concern is that there is too much emphasis on building their far east, particularly their China business. Financial institutions going into China are subject to a situation where their business could disappear overnight if the Chinese government decided to step in. He would rather go with Sun Life (SLF-T).

He can’t comment on the day to day performance and possible short selling.  They have a very significant presence in fast growing Asia.  He has nothing negative to say about them.  They suffered from complicated accounting.  If you think interest rates will go up over time then they will benefit.  You should not worry too much about day to day volatility.

TOP PICK

Everything is going well with all their businesses. They will definitely be a beneficiary of rising rates on both sides of the border. The US business is doing really, really well. Their Asian business is doing really, really well. A great Canadian business that is a global company. Dividend yield of 3.2%. (Analysts’ price target is $28.)

PAST TOP PICK
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

(A Top Pick Oct 28/16. Up 39%.) Had a really good pop, but it isn’t going to repeat that. He still it likes it. It has Asia growth and is a beneficiary of higher rates, which is primarily why it has gone up. Earnings are growing. Expects they will raise the dividend a little in Jan or Feb. A new management team came in recently which impressed the street in their initial meeting.

They are going to overcome the problems they had in the Power Financial crisis. A new CEO is coming in. She likes their positioning in Asia, a faster growth market. They seem to have worked through some of the legacy US problems they inherited with some of their acquisitions. She doesn’t see them exiting their John Hancock US position totally. Dividend yield of 3.2%.

COMMENT
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

He likes this and it is one of the few financials he owns. They have a better growth profile than a lot of domestic Canadian financials because of their international holdings. They’ve done a great restructuring in the past couple of years. On top of that, rising interest rates benefit the lifecos.
