Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Genworth Financial stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Genworth Financial’s has agreed to be acquired by China Oceanwide. This merger will firm up Genworth’s financial position in the mortgage and long-term care insurance markets. Also, the company 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. Mortgage Insurance (MI) business. It deepens focus on streamlining and rationalizing its business to mainly ramp up operations plus boost financial and strategic flexibilities. However, a soft performance at Long term care insurance remains a woe. Shares of Genworth have underperformed the industry year to date." (3/5/2019)

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).
