Intel tops the list

When screening for value investment ideas, I like to consider the spot rate on 20-year high-quality market corporate bonds as a benchmark. To do so, I search for stocks that are doubling the bonds in terms of higher yield.

The bonds are securities representing the corporate loan issued by companies that are triple-A, double-A and single-A rated. The monthly observation on the spot rate on the 20-year bonds is indicating a yield of 4.43% as of August.

Therefore, the list is composed of stocks that have an earnings yield of no less than 8.86% based on the market value at

List of stocks that I think have been unduly punished by the marketplace.

Sometimes bad things happen to good stocks.

In an effort to find bounce-back candidates, I compile a quarterly Casualty List of stocks that I think have been unduly punished by the marketplace.

The one you’re about to read is the 51st Casualty List. (I began this series in July 2000.) On average, these lists have gained a little more than 19% per year, compared with a little less than 9% for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index. Those figures are total returns, including dividends, for the 47 columns on which one-year results can be calculated.

In the fourth quarter, we exited China Life Insurance (HKSE:02628), which has been highly correlated with the A-share market due to its investment exposure in the market. However, its core business in the life insurance sector has lagged behind that of another of our portfolio holdings, Ping An Insurance (HKSE:02318). Given our new capability to invest directly in the A-share market as qualified institutional investors, we exited the position in order to focus on the life insurance industry

Manulife Financial Corporation (MFC) is the largest Canadian life insurer by market capitalization, offering asset management, wealth management and financial services to customers in Asia, Canada and the U.S. However, the company’s annuity and segregated fund business has suffered over the past two years, due to the low interest rate environment, leading to a decline in earnings and operating results. Nonetheless, the firm has been undergoing some changes throughout 2013 and management expects profitability to increase for fiscal 2014, despite its underperformance during fourth quarter fiscal 2013.

I have heard many people comment about the insurance policies for cars, houses, life, assets, etc. The arguments always revolve around the same issue: Is it really necessary? What are the chances to be hit by a Hurricane, or to meet a sudden death? Well, nobody really knows. Some individuals however, sleep better when they know a policy backs their life investments. Here, I will look into three insurance companies that concentrate on different policies, or geographies. These are: [b]China Life[/b] (LFC), and[b] Conseco [/b](CNO).
