2014-04-15 HOLD Keith Richards

Chart shows a long uptrend from early 2012, but has recently had a breakdown. He would give it the benefit of the doubt because sometimes you get the breakdowns and as long as there is a support level ($35 on this one) the stock is still in reasonably good shape.

2014-04-14 DON'T BUY John O'Connell, CFA

Has been under a little bit of pressure recently.  This one is okay down here, but MFC is the more interesting one and he prefers it due to better growth prospects.  Move on from SLF to MFC.  He also likes JPM-N for financials.  You could take a look at C-N also.

2014-04-08 BUY David Cockfield

Has no real problems with this. Well-run company. Ran into some of the same problems that Manulife (MFC-T) had, but he likes their distribution of business better. Good company and the dividend is okay.

2014-04-01 HOLD Christine Poole

She does not own any lifecos right now. Her preference has been Cdn banks. Has a big asset management business in the US which benefits when markets appreciate and funds flow into wealth management business. Over the long run, this is a decent holding and is going to do well.

2014-03-20 COMMENT Greg Newman

Getting a little bit more expensive. Trading at Price to Book at about 1.5X. Thinks ROE should improve. If you own, he would continue to Hold and sell Calls.

2014-02-11 BUY Paul Gardner, CFA

Out of this whole sector, this is the company he likes the best. It offers one of the more stable profiles. The whole sector is benefiting twofold from 1) equity markets going up and 2) yields going up. Valuation is not that extreme. Still has a little more room to run and he can see another 10%.

2014-02-05 PAST TOP PICK Norman Levine

(A Top Pick Jan 31/13. Up 29.64%.) Bought this when people thought the North American life insurance companies were going out of business. This one was less exposed to variable annuities which were a problem. Has a really good asset management division. Now that interest rates have come back up some, the lifecos, including this one, have responded well. Outlook continues to be very good.

2014-01-28 DON'T BUY Charles Lannon

Would the falling Cdn$ help their profits? Broadly speaking, this is the right theme. Canadian stocks massively underperformed global stocks last year, in some cases by as much as 20% in Cdn$ terms. He tends to think this won’t happen again this year and Canadian stocks should perform broadly in line with global stocks. As the loonie comes off, the profitability of a whole host of Canadian companies that get some of their income from outside of Canada will be enhanced. Prefers to play this in other ways.

2014-01-27 COMMENT Peter Brieger

Manulife (MFC-T) or Sun Life (SLF-T)? Doesn’t own either, but if he did, it would probably be Manulife. It’s a bit bigger and has a great track record. Becoming very active in China which he thinks will be a great market for them. This one is also in Asia working in India.

Well held by his private clients. They are diversified and very international. Does well in asset management. If market stays strong this one will do well. Shouldn’t go wrong.

2014-01-09 COMMENT David Baskin

Manulife (MFC-T) or Sun Life (SLF-T)? Low interest-rate environment that we had been in for the last 3-4 years has been terrible for insurance companies. We are now in an environment where everybody expects bond yields to go up, which can only be positive for life companies going forward and it is expected to see better earnings on their portfolios. Feels Manulife probably has more leverage. It has more international exposure and a little bit more scale.

2014-01-06 BUY Lorne Steinberg

More growth in Manufacturers Life (MFC-T) or Sun Life (SLF-T)? These are both global businesses with large exposure to different parts of Asia, in this case in India and other parts. Both are international companies and he likes them both. Still sees upside as well as dividend increases in both companies over the next 2-3 years.

2013-12-17 HOLD Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

This is a stock he would want to own going forward. Released a lot of their reserves and a lot of their guaranteed programs are coming back on side. Guarantees that they have had to keep for individual investors are now looking a lot better. Has a lot of momentum.
