  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Prudential have outperformed the industry quarter to date. Prudential continues to benefit from growth in asset-based businesses, lower taxes, improved margins in Group Insurance business and solid international operations. It is set to grow on its high performing asset management business, international operations (provides it with better organic growth opportunities than peers) and a deeper reach in the pension risk transfer market. Focus on Protection, Retirement and Investment Management businesses will continue to help Prudential lead the space. A strong balance sheet and an efficient capital management are tailwinds. It expects ROE between 12% and 13% in the near-to-intermediate term. However, exposure to still low interest rates, mounting expenses weighing on margin expansion concern.
