Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Unum Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Unum Group’s premiums continue to increase, fueled by high persistency levels in core business lines and a strong sales volume along with a solid benefits experience. Acquisitions provided an additional boost. Continued rollout of dental product and geographic expansion as acquired dental insurance businesses growing foothold the United States and U.K. are paying off. A steady favorable performance drives sound capital generation and a sturdy financial flexibility, thereby aiding an active capital deployment. The company projects operating earnings to grow between 17% and 23% in 2018. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2018 and 2019 witnessed estimates move north in the last 60 days. However, persistent soft results at Closed Block and Corporate segment remain a headwind. Shares of the company have underperformed the industry year-to-date." (12/31/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We would characterize risk results in Unum US as good, particularly in group disability, partially offset by weaker net investment income. We think the market will focus on poor results in Unum’s runoff long-term care (LTC) book, which like Genworth experienced a higher interest-adjusted benefit ratio despite favorable claim resolution (i.e. claimants dying from the flu), and accordingly we expect UNM shares to be weak tomorrow. No change to 2019 estimate. We are lowering our 2018E EPS to $5.16 from $5.17 to reflect the slight miss in Q1. No change to our 2019E of $5.50. Our price target remains at $53 per share, to reflect an applied 1.15x multiple against our 1Q19E modeled book value." (5/2/2018)
