Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Genworth Financial stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Genworth’s second-quarter earnings per share beat estimates on strong mortgage insurance businesses, improved results across all global business as well as a better performance in U.S. life insurance business. Shares of Genworth have outperformed the industry year to date. The company has agreed to be acquired by China Oceanwide. This merger will firm up Genworth’s financial position in the mortgage insurance and long-term care insurance markets. Also, it will remain committed to its key financial priorities of strengthening the balance sheet as well as stabilizing and improving ratings over time, particularly in its U.S. MI business. The company intensifies its focus on streamlining and rationalizing business to mainly ramp up operations plus enhance financial and strategic flexibility. However, soft performance at Long term care insurance remains a woe." (8/3/2018)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Financial’s (GNW) deal to be acquired by $5.43 per share in cash had been viewed as a binary event featuring two key hurdles: approvals from both the States (CFIUS) and the Insurance (DDOI). One of which was removed when the Genworth stated in a press release on Saturday that CFIUS had completed its review of the proposed transaction and concluded that there are no unresolved national security concerns." (6/12/2018)
