What are Wall Street analysts saying about Brighthouse Financial stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Brighthouse Financial stock:
- 1. 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."

Brighthouse Financial (NASDAQ:BHF) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
