Amazon (AMZN) and John…

Amazon (AMZN) and John Hancock, the U.S. division of Toronto-based Manulife (MFC), announced a strategic collaboration to provide engaging tools and resources to help John Hancock life insurance customers improve their individual health. The companies said in a release, "This effort builds on John Hancock's longstanding commitment to help Americans live longer, healthier lives, while providing the peace of mind that comes with owning a life insurance policy. John Hancock is the first life insurer to integrate with Amazon Halo, as part of Amazon's latest venture into the health and wellness space. John Hancock, combined with Amazon's innovative new technology, will help life insurance customers make connections between their fitness, sleep and other lifestyle habits to better understand their overall health through the John Hancock Vitality Program. Starting this fall, all John Hancock Vitality customers will be able to link the Amazon Halo Band to the program to earn Vitality Points for the small, everyday steps they take to try to live a longer, healthier life. Additionally, Amazon Halo Band will be the featured complimentary wearable for eligible John Hancock Vitality members, including three years of Halo membership, when Halo becomes available to the general public. Since the launch of John Hancock Vitality in 2015, the company has continuously made enhancements to the program to better meet customers' changing needs and expectations across physical activity, nutrition, mental health and more. This is the latest step in helping customers understand how their daily choices can help address their overall well-being. The Amazon Halo service is anchored by a mobile app which provides insights into traditional metrics as well as new-to-world tools and features to enable customers to build healthier habits. The accompanying Amazon Halo Band is a wearable health and wellness device that quietly measures your activity, heart rate, sleep, and tone of voice to provide insights into your individual health within the Halo app. John Hancock Vitality customers can sync the Halo Band with their Vitality account to earn points, including: Activity--Amazon Halo measures activity based on a combination of motion and heart rate. Informed by global physical activity guidelines and the latest medical research, Halo scores activity based on the intensity and duration of movement. John Hancock customers will be able to earn Vitality Points using Halo for physical activity by meeting step count or target heart rate thresholds. Sleep--Amazon Halo measures time asleep, time awake, and time spent in the various phases of sleep including deep, light, and REM. Each morning Halo members receive an overall score rating their sleep, with a hypnogram showing sleep cycles. John Hancock Vitality customers will be awarded points for a good night's sleep as measured by their Amazon Halo Band. Labs--Amazon Halo Labs are science-backed challenges or experiments that allow Halo members to discover what works for them individually. At launch, Halo will offer more than 100 labs developed by experts from some of the world's leading health and wellness brands and research institutions across activity, sleep, nutrition, and mindfulness, with new labs added regularly. John Hancock Vitality customers can earn Vitality Points for completing Halo Labs. Over time, Amazon and John Hancock, together with Manulife, will explore additional opportunities to expand the program. John Hancock life insurance customers can also earn Amazon gift cards, and for those who reach the highest levels of Vitality engagement, an Amazon Prime membership."

Manulife Financial CEO Roy Gori said that an environmen tof lower interest rates for longer is becoming a challenge for the company, which did not anticipate the "significant" drop in long-term rates that has occurred, Reuters' Nichola Saminather reports. "A new era of lower rates for longer is a new headwind we'll have to grapple with," Gori said at the S&P Global Insurance Conference. "When we did our planning for 2020 and 2021, we never really anticipated the significant drop in the longer end of the curve as much as we've actually seen." Reference Link

Credit Suisse analyst…

Credit Suisse analyst Mike Rizvanovic upgraded Manulife Financial to Outperform from Neutral with a price target of C$21, down from C$22. Manulife currently trades at slightly more than 60% of its book value, which is only modestly better than its 55% trough during the Financial Crisis, Rizvanovic tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees a favorable valuation at current share levels and believes the company's capital position is strong. Manulife is better positioned for the current downturn from a risk perspective than it was heading into the Financial Crisis, says Rizvanovic.
