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.

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.

They own Investors Group and GWL which are solid operations. The 7.5% yield is safe, but the stock sluggishly grows. Recently, they simplified the management structure, which removed confusion.

It will do fine with rising interest rates. It is a holding company. He is not that bullish on the mutual fund industry.

You could sit and wait to do the share swop from Power Financial into Power Corp. The two companies have been performing the same. The WestJet acquisition fits into their other subsidiaries. WestJet will be a private company and it won't be posting numbers going forwards.

Given consolidation announced this week, is it a value trap? Little incentive for owners, the Desmarais family, to create shareholder value, so the stock has done nothing for a very long time. The dividend is safe and the underlying insurance holdings are steady, but little happening. Prefers Sun-Life which offers more upside. Nothing wrong with POW-T per se, but is management working for the shareholder?
