What are Wall Street analysts saying about Brighthouse Financial stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Brighthouse Financial stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Brighthouse Financial, Inc. provides life insurance and annuity solutions primarily in the United States. The Company offers shield, variable, guaranteed, income, and fixed annuities as well as life insurance, retirement planning and financial advisory services. Brighthouse Financial, Inc. is based in Charlotte, North Carolina. " (5/21/2018) 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We still believe the central issue on the stock is when BHF will reach a variable annuity (VA) asset level equal to CTE95 plus $3 billion, because at that point the company can begin returning capital. The S&P 500 is down for the year (-0.66% YTD) and the increased volatility in equity markets could correspond with increase hedge costs and breakage likelihood but we expect the current variable annuity asset level should still be flat to slightly positive versus the level at year-end 2017 given much higher interest rates (UST 10-year at 2.86% versus 2.43% at the end of December 2017). We expect BHF will update its sensitivity tables versus equity and interest rate in its 10-K filing at the latest. What we liked. 1) Annuity sales were up 32.7% year-over-year and on 26.3% on a linked quarter basis. 2) Variable annuity asset level increased to CTE95 plus $2.6 billion, closer to its goal of CTE95 plus $3.0 billion."
