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 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. The stock has also seen its estimates move up in the last 60 days. However, exposure to still low interest rates, an unfavorable currency impact and regulatory control remain headwinds. Mounting expenses have been weighing on margin expansion. Shares of Prudential have underperformed the industry year to date." (6/4/2018)
