  • Goldman Sachs Downgrades Prudential from "Conviction Buy" to "Buy" (PRU)

    Early on Friday, analysts at Goldman Sachs said that they were removing Prudential Financial Inc (PRU) from Goldman's "Conviction Buy" list, as there are better opportunities in the insurance and investment management sector. However, the analysts still maintain a "Buy" rating on PRU and see shares reaching $96. This price target suggests a 22% upside to the stock's Thursday closing price of $78.69. "We remove PRU from the Americas Conviction List and move into MET, which we see as more attractive to the incremental investor given better leverage to rates and more favorable valuation. However, we reiterate our Buy rating and increase our 12-month price target to $95 (from ($87), implying 21% upside. While shares have been strong ytd (+48% vs S&P 500 +21%) we continue to view PRU as one of the best opportunities in the space as its VA book trades at a discount vs. peers despite a better risk profile and favorable cash flows that will release capital as sales slow," said Goldman Sachs analyst Christopher Giovanni. Prudential shares were up 31 cents, or 0.39%, during early morning trading on Friday. The stock is up 48.55% year-to-date.
