Principal Financial Q3 Profit Jumps, Beating View (PFG)Nov 3, 2009Investing and insurance company Principal Financial Group, Inc. (PFG) late Monday said that third quarter profit more than doubled from last year, helped by lower investment losses . The Des Moines, Iowa-based company reported third quarter net income of $184.7 million, or 57 cents per share, up from $90.1 million, or 35 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Excluding items, operating earnings were 74 cents per share. Revenue fell 9% from last year, to $2.27 billion. On average, Wall Street analysts expected lower operating earnings of 65 cents per share, but on higher revenue of $2.49 billion. Despite lower costs, higher assets under management, and a bigger operating profit, the company was cautious about any short-term recovery. CEO Larry Zimpleman said in a statement that "we expect the economic recovery will be more protracted, and that near-term, business activity will remain muted." Principal Financial shares rose 59 cents, or +2.6%, in premarket trading Tuesday. The Bottom Line We have avoided shares of PFG since our early June coverage began last year, when the shares were trading at $49.19. The company has a dividend yield of 2.00%, based on last night’s closing stock price of $25.01. The stock has technical support around the $20-$21 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $29-$30 price levels. We would remain on the sidelines for now. Principal Financial Group, Inc. (PFG) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
