2015-08-28 COMMENT Don Lato

Very well-managed. They will be a beneficiary of higher interest rates. They continue to grow their business, both domestically and internationally. Have a number of different product lines now. Expanding more and more into the asset management business. Multiple is pretty reasonable, but a little higher than the banks.

2015-08-27 BUY Stan Wong

Added to his holdings this week on its weakness. Gives you a dividend at 3.6%, which should increase nicely over the next several years by 10%-15% on an annualized basis. Have a good mix of insurance on the asset management side, so they are going to take part when the interest rate moves upward. There are also going to take part in the equity markets doing well.

2015-08-19 TOP PICK Norman Levine

They are going to benefit from bond rates going up, but are also one of the biggest money managers in North America. That is a highly profitable growing business. Raised their dividend this year, for the first time since the financial crisis, and he sees this continuing over the next few years.

2015-08-17 BUY on WEAKNESS Ryan Bushell

3.5% dividend.  It is his largest position because it has performed well recently.  He doubled his position last summer.  He is in it for wealth management as well as the possibility for interest rate hikes.  He would wait for a pull back before accumulating more.

2015-08-14 WAIT Jon Vialoux

There is a seasonal gain that occurs on average about Feb-March all the way through to July. It doesn’t necessarily go negative seasonally, it is just not very positive.

2015-08-11 TOP PICK Ron Meisels

It is the only financial stock in Toronto that is on an uptrend. Banks are still groping for a bottom. This is the one that has broken out. He feels that there are many positive things about it. It has good upside potential.

2015-07-31 TOP PICK David Cockfield

This is mainly Canada and the US, which is what he likes. A good safe stock and he can see it increasing its dividend in the future. Prefers this over Manulife (MFC-T) because of Manulife’s involvement in the Orient. Dividend yield of 3.15%.

2015-07-24 COMMENT Jeff Young

Insurance companies have more global representation than the banks. Also, interest rates have to go up to normalize levels at some point. He has been adding insurance companies because of those reasons. (See Top Picks & Past Picks.)

2015-06-25 PAST TOP PICK Stan Wong

(A Top Pick June 24/14. Up 14.76%.) With better equity markets and rising bond yields, the life insurers will do well. They have a balanced approach in terms of growth by investing in North America and at the same time getting into emerging markets.

2015-06-22 BUY Peter Brieger

He likes the life companies.  They have been doing better.  Higher interest rates are helpful and if we get into better stock markets that too will help. SLF-T are in the far east and he thinks they will do well. Not his prime choice, but he does like it.

2015-06-11 WAIT Ross Healy

You want to be in this sector in the fall when interest rates go up.  Technical resistance at the $44 area.  If interest rates go up he sees $54.

2015-06-09 COMMENT Christine Poole

She likes the insurance sector. Her preferred play is Manulife (MFC-T), but there is nothing wrong with Sun Life. She likes the Asian exposure of Manulife, and they have done some interesting acquisitions over the last year.

2015-06-01 HOLD Bruce Campbell (1)

In the lifecos, this one has the highest yield, but he thinks the total return is better under Manulife (MFC-T) and Power Financial (PWF-T). This one is a good hold.

2015-05-11 PAST TOP PICK Ryan Bushell

(Top Pick Jun 5/14, Up 10.22%) He likes the higher dividend yield.  Just did their first dividend increase since 2008.  Their core life insurance business allows them expansion into other areas of the industry.  You want to be in it ahead of the interest rate hike curve.

2015-04-27 COMMENT Peter Brieger

Statistically this is slightly cheaper and slightly more attractive than Manulife (MFC-T). However, Manulife have been acquiring new businesses. They are going to have a 15 year tie-in to a major financial distributor in Asia. Sun Life has had a few problems, but they are turning that around. The focus for them is the growth of the private wealth business.
