What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lincoln National stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lincoln National stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lincoln National’s earnings of $2.34 per share beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 7.8% and grew 15.3% year over year, mainly led by double-digit earnings growth across all business lines as well as strategic investments such as Liberty acquisition. The company 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 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. Its shares have underperformed its industry in a year's time. Its increased expenses driven by investment in technology might weigh on margins. High leverage is another cause of concern." (11/25/2019)
