This summary was created by AI, based on 4 opinions in the last 12 months.

Based on the reviews from different experts, it appears that Prudential Financial Inc (PRU-N) has been overbought after a recent run-up, leading to suggestions to take some profits. However, compared to struggling banks within the financial sector, the insurance sector is outperforming due to certain companies being able to weather the storm of rising interest rates. Additionally, there is a positive outlook for the company in the Asian market, particularly in China, where it is well-positioned to benefit from long-term secular trends and growing middle class. Lastly, despite paying a 5% dividend and receiving an upgrade, the stock has only gone up 3% this year.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 14/23, Down 29%)

An Asian pure-play in insurance. The overall Asian market was down last year. They achieved all their growth goals in the past year, though. They will benefit from long-term secular trends in Asia. He expects good penetration rates in China where the middle is growing, so PRU is well-positioned. Today, he heard that Sun-Life is taking a trip to China to learn about that market.

Pays a 5% dividend and was upgraded today, and yet it's up only 3% this year.

DON'T BUY

Is shying away from all financials for now, until the banking crisis ends. This looks compelling though. This could go lower.

DON'T BUY
Pays a big yield, but the stock could still go down. Even the best insurer, Chubb, is seeing weaker shares. Avoid the insurers.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Feb 25/21, Up 25%) Will benefit from rising rates. De-risking assets. Good technical chart. Outperforming the S&P. Only 0.7x price to book. Yield is 4.3%.
insurance
TOP PICK
Financials destined to outperform in next 12-24 months. Global, diversified. Second largest lifeco in US. Interest rates moving higher helps. Trades at just over half of book value, a huge discount to peers. Dividend looks solid and will probably grow over time. Yield is 5.09%. (Analysts’ price target is $85.53)
insurance
DON'T BUY
A lifeco in America that deals in seg funds. They have a stronger share in cancer insurance in Japan. With interest rates so low, the present value of the benefits they have promised to pay policyholders have risen in value. So, it makes no sense to own any insurers until long-term rates rise. PRU has a strong capital position, so it's better than its peers, but it isn't immune.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Nov 08/18, Up 4%) They spun off the asset management business in the UK that was a 3.7B pound deal. Typically, you see what happens with the spin out and sell it if you like it. There is some upside. Their Hong Kong headquarters is growing very strongly. US operations are growing well too. With Brexit and Hong Kong issues resolved, the business could grow even more.

COMMENT

US Lifeco vs Financials PRU-N is at risk to interest rates on their premiums collected as he thinks yields will remain neutral. He is not keen on BAC-N either at this point for the same views of the yield curve. Things can't get any better for each right now -- a no man's land right now. He sees a bit better bid for Lifecos, but mostly from a defensive position. There are more compelling areas than these two spaces.

insurance
DON'T BUY
Metlife vs. Prudential vs. US banks Both are high quality and international. Strong. He doesn't love lifecos now, because there's a lot going on in health, such as the prevalance of diabetes. He wants to see higher interest rates which can benefit lifecos. As for banks, he'd stay away. The rates and yield curve have flattened. Met are doing the right thing, like a nice dividend and a big share buybacks. It isn't expensive and doing 10% earnings growth, but there are greener pastures elsewhere.
insurance
BUY ON WEAKNESS
Typically it is around $100 and is around $90 at present so a good a time to buy. Bond yields are low and the asset management business has seen fee compression. People are living longer and so there has been some mispricing on life insurance contracts. It has been a though business for a couple of years. It pays a dividend. It will probably get double digit returns this year. He would buy it down here.
insurance
DON'T BUY
He would avoid life insurance in general because rising interest rates raise the present value of their liabilities.
