    At nearly $20 per share earnings per year, at a price of about $103, I mean, where else can you find this kind of return with the kind of margin of safety that a company like this can provide?

    Can someone explain this transformation to higher growth more nimble insurance company, it’s sounds sketchy, I’m here for consistent dividends

    I just scrapped together an additional $5000 that I hadn’t had invested and bought more of this stuff. I cannot believe it is under $100 a share. This is an absolute crazy bargain. wish I had more to throw in it!

    Why on earth are people selling this morning. I see it is only a super small volume, but PRU is ripe for this very environment....rates being raised. That is a catalyst for insurance company stocks. Stay in - don't lose your money over this. FPE is very low. That also makes this stock in favor along with an exception dividend above 4%. And don't forget about the dividend increase they announced and stock buy backs. I just can't see why anyone would sell PRU. I'm long.

    My favorite slide from this mornings earnings presentation:

    "Robust Capital Position Supports Increased Shareholder Distributions"

    PRU continues to print $ quarter after quarter. Looking forward to the call.

    Hmmmm…is it me or are they answering every Q with “Yeah, we’re not making any progress”? How can they not accomplish any admin savings…any respectable cost controller would have 100 savings ideas.

    It’s going to be a long slog for life insurance companies. LOTS of extra death benefits being paid out.

    PRU makes $14, has great prospects/buybacks/liquidity, and trades at $116. ABBV makes $14, has a big drug coming off patent, and has no real near-term prospects I can identify. ABBV was very good to me but it now trades $60 higher than PRU. I am rotating my ABBV into PRU, will be completed this week. Any cautions or encouragement?

    Some highlights from CEO Lowerys recent comments:
    - That refocus is set to free up $5 billion to $10 billion in capital the company plans to either return to shareholders or plow back into its businesses in emerging markets and PGIM, which had $1.52 trillion in assets under management at the end of last year.
    - Prudential also expects to benefit as inflation ushers in higher interest rates, Lowrey said. “For insurance companies, given the size of our general account, higher interest rates is a good thing, because we are constantly reinvesting in fixed income.
    - The company has “de minimis” exposure to the region, with no operations in Belarus, Ukraine or Russia.

    This isn't good Zack has a rating sell. Pru has a class action lawsuit against them thats why it's been falling. Makes no sense extremely low p/e ratio. They raised dividends again. I'm gonna hold but it's not looking good from what I read.
