Prudential PLC
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

We reiterate PUK as a TOP PICK.  Half year results showed new business profits up 39%, while raising the dividend by 9%.  It trades at 11x earnings, under 2x book and generates a 20% ROE.  Its dividend is backed by a modest 15% payout ratio.  We continue to recommend a stop at $17, looking to achieve $29 -- upside potential over 35%.  Yield 1.8%

Yields 5.5% and trades at 7x PE. This makes him think that something is wrong here, not cheap. Be careful.

PAST TOP PICK
Prudential PLC
(A Top Pick Sep 06/19, Down 4%) Escalation of issues in Hong Kong, plus low interest rates, so it was time to move on.
Financial Services
TOP PICK
Prudential PLC
They have operations in London, Hong Kong, and the US. The Brexit situation and issues in Hong Kong have allowed for a great entry point. They are spinning off the UK asset management business, that will create a special dividend payout later this year. Yield 2.29% (Analysts’ price target is $22.01)

DON'T BUY
Prudential PLC
Would there be an opportunity to buy taking advantage of the weakness on the British Pound in case there is a hard Brexit? The financial services industry in the UK has taken a pounding but still thinks there are better places to be. He wouldn't comment on Brexit (even though he think there won't be one) and he wouldn't allowed currencies to influence his investment decisions.
Financial Services
TOP PICK
Prudential PLC
Effectively three main businesses: Mature cash cow insurance business, high-growth Hong Kong pan-Asian exposure and an annuity US under the Jackson National brand. They are in the process of selling their wealth management business in the UK. (Analysts’ price target is $117.68)

BUY ON WEAKNESS
Prudential PLC

Habitually rates are higher than your average life co. He likes the space because it is one of the spaces out there that benefits from the normalization of long term bonds. Expects lifecos to be amongst the best performing.

PAST TOP PICK
Prudential PLC

(Top Pick Sep 11/13, Up 33.03%) He would cut back because it is overweight.

Financial Services
BUY
Prudential PLC

Largest life insurer in the UK. Kind of a household name there. About half of its business is derived from Asia with the 2nd largest portion being from the US and a 3rd from the UK. This is a growth company, not a maximized dividend payout type, because the focus is on Asia. Good combination of defensiveness, cash generation and growth. The upside potential outweighs the downside risk.

Financial Services
BUY
Prudential PLC

Big wealth management book. Exposed to Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, etc. There is potential noise that it is going to spin off the US business.

Financial Services
TOP PICK
Prudential PLC

Insurance company based in the UK. Have old legacy business, which is slow growing, as well as a business in the US plus a high growth business in Asia, which is insurance and wealth management. The Asian business is effectively the story. Strong balance sheet. 2.7% yield. There is a rumour that they may spin off the US asset which would create some big upside.

Financial Services
BUY
Prudential PLC

(Market Call Minute.) Likes the outlook for life insurance companies with rising interest rates. Based in England, but was still benefit from that.
