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 is poised to grow on the back of its increasing top line, led by a strong performance of the Life Insurance Segment, product introduction, enhancement of the existing products and change in the business mix. Performance of its Group Insurance business is impressive. Shares of the company have underperformed its industry in a year's time. Nevertheless, the company has been streamlining its businesses to exit non-core and less profitable operations.  However, it is likely to suffer  from the COVID-19- related uncertainty. Its increased expenses due to investment in technology might weigh on the margins. High leverage is another cause for concern. Low interest rates will also put pressure on the investment yields and drain its investment income." (5/28/2020)
