Q: Peter, I am seeing coflicting recomendations on Manulife. I am looking for steady and growing long term dividends. If you would buy Manulife where is a good entry point, Thanks Ken

5i Research Answer:

We think MFC is OK and we would be OK owning it for income. We do prefer SLF still. There is, of course, a conflcting opinion on every single trade of every stock. MFC has 15 analysts: 8 BUY, 6 HOLD, 1 SELL. Any concerns towards the company we think are reflected in the very low valuation of 7X earnings right now. It recently paid a small special dividend and we would expect the dividend to be increased sometime in 2022.
