Deutsche Bank Starts Coverage of CNA Financial at "Buy" (CNA)Sep 4, 2013Early on Wednesday, Deutsche Bank analysts initiated coverage on property and casualty insurance provider CNA Financial Corp. (CNA) , giving the stock a bullish rating due to its ability to expand margins. The analysts rate CNA as "Buy" and see shares reaching $42. This price target suggests an 18.5% upside to the stock's Tuesday closing price of $35.44. "For several years, CNA has underperformed P&C peers due to under-reserving in the early part of the last decade and poor accident-year margins in the last few years. Poor operating performance plus thin stock liquidity has created a valuation at a deep discount to P&C industry peers. Recent pricing actions should likely result in margin expansion leading to a return on equity that is approximately equivalent to, if not better than, the company's cost of equity capital. We expect the stock's discount to book value to evaporate as ROE enters the 7-9% range," said Deutsche Bank analyst Joshua Shanker. CNA Financial shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Wednesday. The stock is up 26.53% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of CNA Financial Corp (CNA) offer a dividend yield of 2.26% based on Tuesday's closing price of $35.44 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 80 cents per share. CNA Financial Corp. (CNA) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.

CNA Financial Q2 Profit Rises; EPS Tops Estimates (CNA)Jul 29, 2013Property and casualty insurance company CNA Financial Corp. (CNA) reported early on Monday that it saw a 17% year-over-year second quarter profit, with earnings per share beating analysts' estimates. The Chicago, Illinois-based company posted a second quarter net income of $194 million, or 72 cents per share, up from $166 million, or 62 cents per share, earned in the same period a year ago. The company's quarterly net operating income came in at $204 million, or 75 cents per share, up from $152 million, or 56 cents per share, in the year prior. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, the company was expected to earn 70 cents per share in the quarter. CNA Financial also noted that its Property & Casualty Operations' net operating income was $258 million in the second quarter, up from $163 million last year. The company said this increase was due to higher net investment income, an improved current accident year, and a settlement of $30 million related to workers' compensation. "We are pleased to see the impact of our efforts clearly reflected in this quarter's results. Our second quarter and year-to-date P&C accident year loss ratios ex cats and development improved 2.9 and 2.4 points respectively over prior periods. In addition, rate continues to be strong and we are delivering top line growth," said Thomas F. Motamed, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CNA Financial Corporation. He added, "We are also pleased that Standard & Poor's recently announced that it had upgraded CNA's financial strength ratings to A with a stable outlook. This improves our competitive position and validates the work we have done to enhance our financial strength. We are encouraged by our progress yet realize that we have more work to do to improve CNA's earnings power." The company also declared its next quarterly dividend payout of 20 cents per share. This dividend will be paid on August 28 to shareholders of record on August 12. CNA Financial shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up 23.06% year-to-date.

CNA's Q2 Profit Falls 42% on Investment Losses, Adjusted Results Beat View (CNA)Aug 3, 2009Insurance holding company CNA Financial Corporation (CNA) on Monday said its second quarter profit fell 42% from last year, hurt by mounting mortgage-related losses. Adjusted results easily beat Wall Street's view, however, and CNA's shares rallied in Monday morning trading. The Chicago-based company reported second quarter net income of $105 million, or 27 cents per share, down from $181 million, or 67 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Excluding $199 million in mortgage-related investment losses, CNA saw an adjusted profit of $1.02 per share. On average, Wall Street analysts expected a much lower profit of 68 cents per share, excluding items. On a more sour note, CNA's combined ratio rose to 98.1% in the quarter, up from 97.7% last year. Combined ratio is considered a key metric for insurers, because it measures the amount of money the company pays out in claims versus how much revenue it generates from new business. CNA Financial shares rose $2.32, or +13.6%, in morning trading Monday. The Bottom Line Shares of CNA are off 52-week highs of $29 a share. The stock has technical support in the $14-$17 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $20 price range. We do not rate this former dividend-paying stock, but we do follow the company closely. CNA Financial Corporation (CNA) does not currently pay a dividend.
