  • Torchmark Downgraded to "Underperform" at FBR Capital (TMK)

    FBR Capital reported on Tuesday that it has cut its rating on Torchmark Corporation (TMK) . The firm has downgraded TMK from "Outperform" to "Underperform," and has given the company a $69 price target. This price target suggests a 5% decline from the stock's current price of $72.35. Analysts have downgraded the stock due to a lack of sales visibility. Analyst Randy Binner commented: "Our downgrade is driven by what we believe will be continued sales challenges and valuation that has run past our price target." "While Torchmark is an attractive defensive idea as a predictable earnings, low interest rate sensitivity, and strong capital management story, we believe these factors are well priced in at 12x 2014E P/E. Further multiple expansion, we think, would need to be driven by sales improvements, which are at a difficult inflection point over the next two quarters." Torchmark shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Tuesday. The stock is up 40% YTD.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Torchmark Corporation (TMK) have a 0.94% yield based on Monday's closing price of $72.35.
