  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We would peg normalized EPS at around $1.49 after backing out $0.05 per share of associated with a benefit from changing the state of domicile for Primerica Life, $0.03 per share from a deferred acquisition cost (DAC) adjustment in Investment and Savings Products (ISP) and $0.03 per share from lower tax rate. We are maintaining our 2018 adjusted EPS estimate at $7.25 to reflect higher asset levels and lower share count offset by a higher guided tax rate than we were modeling. We are raising our 2019E to $8.00 from $7.85 to reflect higher assets levels and a lower share count. Additionally, we are introducing our 2020 EPS estimate of $8.80. FactSet 2018 consensus of $7.03 does not seem to reflect the impact of tax reform in all estimates. We are raising our price target to $102 per share from $100.
