I have my lazy eye on the life insurance companies. They're going through some hard times in this low interest rate environment. Rates can't stay this low forever, can they? I figure buying a lifeco would also offer a nice counter balance to my bond holdings. If rates go up, my bonds will lose value but I'd expect the lifeco to gain value.

PS: Just checked the charts for MFC, GWO, and SLF. Seems I might be slightly late to the party but I feel there will be some fresh doses of bad news that will provide better entry points in the new year.
