    It would seem if the stock price increases back to the $5 price level, it would be an opportunity to cash out, and recognize this stock as more of a trading stocking rather than a steady long term investment

    Aegon Targets 13% Cost Cuts to Lower Debt by 2023; Seeks to Grow Dividend
    Aegon (AEG), a Dutch financial services company, said Thursday it plans to lower gross financial leverage to a range of EUR5 billion to EUR5.5 from 6.6 billion euro by implementing an expense savings program of EUR400 million, or 13%, by 2023.

    The company also said it plans to reach free cash flows of EUR1.4 to 1.6 billion by 2023, and grow dividend per share to around EUR0.25 per share from EUR0.15 seen in 2019.

    The company said going forward, it plans to focus on three core markets, the US, the Netherlands, and the UK, and three growth markets, Spain and Portugal, China, and Brazil, and one global asset manager.

    The company said it plans to reduce expenses by EUR 400 million in 2023 compared with 2019, or around 13% of the addressable expense base. Of this saving, EUR 150 million will be reinvested in growth, the company said.

    I know this company has had it's share of issues including mismanagement. However, i think they are now headed in the right direction with new CEO. This stock is trading at about 20% of it's book value.

    For a large company AEG stock price should be much higher.

    Why such a good stock is keeping on going down, when will this one turn around towards 5-6 range where it use to be.....

    Looking for a sustained move above $5 per share. Old priced products requiring mortality adjustments have been priced in over the years for large losses, so a sustained move above $5 could bring in buyers not allowed to invest in "penny" stocks.

    Aegon cannot hold increases of it's share prices for long. it's a two steps forward three steps back approach.

    This is a funny stock. For a euro based insurance company their debt load is quite low. Their P/E ratio is under 5, they posted not a shocking quarter. It wasn't great, but it was only down 6% from previous year. So why is it trading so low? It seems to be a sector bias, because EQH for example also seems criminally undervalued.

    This company has had the last few years to get their profit ratios in line------and the last quarter failed miserably. If it wasn't for tax changes in the US this company would have fallen $2/share today. Leadership is nonexistant; anbd the increase in dividend is irresponsible. I just sold my 2500 shares; and took a material loss. This stock will not go up.

    In december there is a conference call. I'm guessing AEG will be $6 by June 2021. They will resume divi from previously and continue to confound everyone by trading at $3x EPS

    First you need to understand the financials of Life Insurance Companies, they would get bailed out or bought before they go bankrupt.

    Second, this company grows its SalesForce in this type of market.

    Third, the new retirement act puts Annuities in 401ks, what do you think that will do the the performance of this company?

    bought a ton of shares at 3.83....great dividend...I don't care if it ever moves from 4.00....as long as it stays above 3.83 and does not cut the dividend, I am happy!

    New CEO. Slightly new direction. I like that they are spending dividend on de-leveraging, but most of the value in this stock was the 6 to 8% divi. It won't break 3 or 4 again until the yield returns.
