Metlife

Metlife should continue to benefit from bond yields and equity markets that will likely trend higher over time. Buy this high quality insurance name while it still trades at less than book value.

TransCanada

$25-billion of potential growth opportunities over the next six years should lead to further capital appreciation and dividend growth. Enjoy a nice 4-per-cent-and-growing dividend while this plays out.

Past Picks: Oct 1, 2012

TransCanada
Then: $44.67
Now: $47.12
Total return: +8.57 per cent

Enbridge
Then: $38.62
Now: $46.05
Total return: +21.77 per cent

Pembina Pipeline
Then: $27.60
Now: $32.10
Total return: +21.59 per cent

Total return average: +17.31 per cent

Market outlook:

The great rotation out of bonds and into equities will likely continue although probably not in a straight line. Rising bond yields over time will continue to pressure interest sensitive stocks and favour stocks that benefit from, or are indifferent to, higher rates.
