Manulife (MFC)

Company profile: Manulife is the largest Canadian life insurer by market value. It provides financial protection and wealth-management products and services to individual and group customers. It operates in the U.S. under the name John Hancock and also does a strong business in Asia.

Investor takeaway: Down 35% in 2011, Manulife's stock is up 12% this year. Analysts give its shares one "buy/hold" and two "hold," ratings, according to an S&P survey.






JPMorgan Chase (JPM - Get Report)

Company profile: JPMorgan Chase is one of the largest financial institutions in the U.S., with more than $2 trillion in assets and operations in more than 60 countries.

Investor takeaway: JPMorgan Chase fell 20% last year, and its shares are up 13% this year. S&P said the firm's fourth-quarter results "were adversely affected by trading revenues of only $750 million, down sharply from an average of $2.8 billion in the prior four quarters, due to risk aversion on the part of corporate customers."

But analysts' consensus is for earnings of $4.70 per share this year, with growth of 14% in 2013. A survey of analysts by S&P found 18 "buys," nine "buy/holds," and five "holds."
