What are Wall Street analysts saying about Unum Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Unum Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Unum Group have underperformed the industry in a year. Persistent soft results at Closed Block and Corporate segment remains a headwind.  The company has also witnessed its 2019 and 2020 estimates moved south in the last 60 days. The company is set to report first quarter results on Apr 30. A Zacks Rank #4 and earnings EPS of -2.12% makes positive surprise prediction difficult.  Nonetheless, premiums increased fueled by high persistency levels in core business lines and strong sales volume along with a solid benefits experience. Acquisitions provided an additional boost. Continued rollout of dental product and geographic expansion are paying off as acquired dental insurance businesses are growing in the United States and United Kingdom Sound capital generation and financial flexibility aided active capital deployment. The company projects operating earnings per share to grow between 4% and 7% in 2019." (4/12/2019)
  • 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)
