  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lincoln National is poised to grow on the back of its increasing top line led by strong performance of the Life Insurance Segment, new product introduction, enhancement of existing products and change in business mix. It has been performing well on the back of solid business lines as well as strategic investments. It has also streamlined its business by axing unprofitable and non-core lines to focus on core growth areas. Performance of its Group Insurance business is impressive. The company's shares have underperformed its industry in a year's time.  It has witnessed its 2020 estimates move south over the past 30 days. However, its increased expenses driven by investment in technology might weigh on margins. High leverage of the company is another cause of concern." (12/18/2019)
