What are Wall Street analysts saying about Prudential Financial stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Prudential Financial stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Prudential’s exposure to still low interest rates as well as to products like annuities and universal life guarantying low returns remains a woe. Escalating expenses continue to weigh on margin expansion. Shares of Prudential underperformed the industry in a year’s time. Also, a Zacks Rank #4 and Earnings ESP of -1.61% makes surprise prediction inconclusive as it reports fourth quarter results on Feb 6. However, Prudential continues to gain from growth in asset-based businesses, improved margins in Group Insurance business and solid international operations. High performing asset management business, deeper reach in the pension risk transfer market, strong balance sheet and an efficient capital management are catalysts. Focus on Protection, Retirement and Investment Management businesses will help lead the space. It expects 2019 bottom line between $12.50 and $13.00 and ROE between 12% and 13% in the near-to-intermediate term." (1/14/2019)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are resuming coverage of PRU with a change in analyst, an Outperform rating, and a $105 price target. We see the company as a franchise name among global life insurers, with key strengths highlighted by a dominant market position in the large- case pension risk transfer business, a broad and diversified business mix, and a high-returning Japanese business. Further, we view PRU as undervalued relative to peers following the recent sell-off in shares since the end of September (down 16% for PRU, versus down 13% for peers and down 13% for the S&P 500)."
