Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Insurers will benefit whenever interest rates rise. When this happens is anyone’s guess, but likely not this year. Until then, there’s little to recommend POW stock, which I owned years ago. For the past five years, POW stock has traded within a strict range between, plunging to the mid/low-20s and rising to $33 which is its current level. In that time, POW stock’s EPS has been -$4.32%. Meanwhile, Power pays a safe 5.42% dividend based on a 71% payout ratio. That’s basically it. Read April Showers and Flowers: 4 Covid Vaccination Stocks to Buy and Sell for our full analysis.

You have to like financial services industry. There is a lot they do under their umbrella. A growth area. It is sensitive to capital markets. Must be cautious. Closer to a high than its low. Not early.

Holds communications, cash, Great West Life, Investors Group. He doesn't want anything in the mutual fund industry. Not trading at a big discount to NAV. Safe, decent dividend, reasonable valuation. Not attracted at these levels. Doesn't have the growth.

A number of strategic moves have gone largely unnoticed. Selling non-core assets. Interest rates will benefit it. An inexpensive entry point. Not a lot of downside from here. Yield is 5.67%. (Analysts’ price target is $34.80)

Not that enamoured. Doesn't like the business. Can't believe the high fees they charge. Family management team not proactive. More horsepower in Manulife for a similar business. It has better risk/reward long-term, with a good-sized dividend while you wait.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Power Corp whopping 6.67% dividend yield is considered safe at a 79% payout ratio. This stock appeals to income investors who don’t expect much stock appreciation. Power trades at a low 10x PE, which has actually fallen from 14.13x a year ago. So, this is a steady but boring dividend stock whose share price should slowly creep up in months to come. Are there better returns out there? Yes, but they’re also riskier. Read PEP and NVDA: 3 More Top Recognized ESG Investing Options for our full analysis.

He holds it for some clients in income portfolios. The share price has gone nowhere but they pay good dividends. It certainly is undervalued.

A value play within a value play, which is the financial sector. It has lagged significantly both YTD and in the recent recovery. You get life insurance, Great West Life, and asset management. The company isn't in danger but there are better opportunities elsewhere.

Really likes it. More than 6% dividend, with relatively low payout ratio. Not that exciting, but core businesses are strong. Wouldn't be surprised by 5-8% capital growth over a year or two. Hold it for the yield, and it will turn into a solid core holding.

A financial holding company that is the major holder of Power Financial. Power Financial has Great West Life and IGM Financial under them. The double stacked holding company offers a discount. In terms of the underlying assets, they are very positive. Great West Life pays a good dividend. He is less enthused by IGM Financial.

Canadian insurance held up remarkably well during the lockdown. POW owns 80% of Great-West Life which was up 26% in earnings. He projects an 8% growth rate. POW is super cheap at 7.3x 2022, and pays a 7% dividend with a 54% payout ratio. Trades at a NAV discount of 28% instead of the usual 19%. It will be a steady eddy in coming years. (Analysts’ price target is $28.06)

It's now cheap, trading at a discount to NAV. Sees it eventually getting back to $35, but maybe not in the next 6 months. Should catch a bid with the rest of the financials. This is the one time investing in Power Corp would make some sense on a catch-up basis.

He still owns it in his income fund. It has been stuck for years, with many headwinds. The company needs interest rates to rise. For keen, patient investors, there are opportunities.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Recently (and belatedly for some), Power Financial and Power Corp. simplified their management structure. The pandemic has pressured shares from the low-$30s to the current low-$20s where it has been rangebound during the recovery. Power Corporation pays 7.47% dividend.

Has Great West Life instead. POW has quite the dividend yield. Not a bad PE. Price to book is below book value. Low interest rates are impacting these companies, and it's going to be lower for longer. He wants dividend growth and capital appreciation. This is a value play, which hasn't worked out for quite some time.
