It's already breaking out. Resistance goes back to 2018, but he wants to see another month to confirm this breakout. If it does, this will rise to the high-$30s.

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?

PWF is a holding that she has for the income. PWF and POW are going to merge, which is driving up the value of both today. The merger is one way to close the gap between market valuations of the two. There is some thought the dividend will increase and the new entity plans to buy back shares. She will continue to hold as it an income stock. The yield is still over 5%.

A holding company with Power Financial being a main holding. It is Great West Life investor group, so financial and mutual funds. Not a lot of growth. The original founder has died and his children took over. A disappointing stock and not exciting. He held it but sold.

He owns PWF instead, which pays a slightly higher dividend. POW is a solid company that's grown for a long time. The generation that's inherited that company may lack the drive of the founder but they are operating  steadily. Worth holding onto, a buy-and-hold.

He does not own them and has not done for years. He would trade into something else. For over 10 years that has been dead money. He does not see how management will create anything exciting.

POW vs. BPY Different business models, so difficult to compare them. Brookfield has superb managers. POW has stalled in recent years. He prefers BPY though both Power stocks have been doing better lately.

About 8% payout ratio. This is a prime candidate for him to purchase. This one could end up lagging the performance of the overall market over the next 12 months.

Great company. Beta is between 0.8-1, so more defensive than broad market. In a choppy market, things with high yields and low beta tend to do better, though not immune to a downturn altogether. Could do worse, but could do better. Not your best horse in terms of asset management. Dividend yield is about 6%.

Life insurance companies have not done that well. This company owns Great West Life, which has been a disappointment.

Dividend is safe. But not a lot of capital appreciation. Underlying subsidiaries have not performed well. She prefers a company that provides more visibility and has higher dividend and cash flow growth. Yield is 5.5%.

The market has taken the point of view that until the areas they are primarily in show growth or momentum, the rest of their company has only been doing 'okay'. You won't get significant appreciation in the foreseeable future.

PWF or POW? He would prefer Power Financial as it trades to a discount to the parent. He is not a big fan of the Investors Group and Great West Life. He would look towards others in the space -- preferably the Canadian banks instead.

POW vs. PWF POW has better liquidity so institutional investors prefer it. For growth, though, these are plays on life insurance. The PWF yield is over 6% and tantalizing. They likely won't cut the dividend, but probably will pause dividend growth. There are better stocks in asset management or insurance. He wouldn't buy either for capital appreciation.
