Q: Hello Peter and Team. Within my RIFF, I own MFC (5.84% of my RIFF) and I bought it many years ago? for $28.23. It is now around $20.79 or so. I also own TCK.B (6.94%) and I paid $32.48 many years ago but is now about $24.72 They both, as you can see are always in the red and have a very long way to go to catch up again. My PF is well balanced with your help but in this predicament, what would you suggest? As always thank you ahead of time.

Q: Good morning. I am thinking of adding to my financial holdings and have read your recent comments on BNS, TD, FSZ, SLF, GWO, and MFC all of which I hold for a 10% financial weighting. I'm thinking of adding to MFC to bring it's weighting up to SLF and GWO and total of 12% for the group. MFC is improving and 5i seems to be warming up to it. I think MFC may be getting close to rebuilding it's dividend as well.
I would appreciate your opinion on this purchase as well as the weightings overall.
Once again, many thanks for your input.

Q: Hi 5i! I have been a long time holder of Manulife (MFC). Now with the prospect of rising interest rates, insurers are back in favour. Would you recommend holding on to MFC or making the switch to Sunlife (SLF). If not Sunlife, which would be your preferred insurer?

I am slowly turning over my portfolio to 5i's covered stocks and/or model portfolio!

Thanks for helping us retail investors!
