    Morgan Stanley comments:
    "“We view the announcement today of MetLife’s planned acquisition of Versant health positively. Not only is the transaction consistent with its strategy of growing low capital intensive non-medical health operations, but it also demonstrates management confidence in their current capital position, with the company also announcing plans to complete their existing buyback plan this year, implying roughly $0.5 billion of buybacks by year-end,” said Nigel Dally, equity analyst at Morgan Stanley".

    Actually if you look at the 6 month chart a Cup and Handle formed at $51. On top of that you have Jon Najarian promoting the options for March 55 because of huge volume today. 49,125 new options today and some were ours. Previously there were 2243 in play. That is a HUGE increase and someone is betting 3,33 million USD that this is going to move at least $2.75 by March 20 expiration date.

    With a 5% dividend, share buybacks, and a low p/e, these shares look very enticing. Might add some more here.

    Stable dividend and outlook as indicated by CEO, too cheap not to add some more,

    which stock is the lowest price in insurance industry?
    1.ROE
    ROE rank: (2020+2019+2018)/ ave(book value)
    met:5.5/80=7%
    Lnc:5%
    UNM:9.5%
    PRu:6.7%
    UNM is real excellent stock with wrong price.
    UNM is the highest ROE in insurance?

    why is it always get the unfair the so low Value?

    2.Operating Cash Flow
    during the past 3 years:
    UNM:2017-2020=1.15B+1.5B+1.7B+2.2B=6.5B>>4.8B cap value
    LNC: 0.67+2.06+(-2.87)+0.8=0.7B <<9.87B cap value
    MET:12.28+11.74+13.93+12=50B>47 cap value

    Is there a second company in the Wall Street capital market?
    The operating cash flow proof the company can earn whole company back during 3 years!

    3.PE
    ave(2018-2020)
    UNM:4
    LNC:10
    MET:8.5

    over all, UNM is the lowest stock !

    From Conference Call held yesterday:
    "As always, we carefully weigh every use of capital against the alternatives. Our goal is to achieve the right balance between investing in growth and returning capital to create long-term shareholder value. With Versant, our confidence could not be higher that we are making the right investment at the right time in the right business.

    As noted in our press release, we are also pleased to announce that we are resuming share repurchases. By the end of the year, we expect to complete the remaining $485 million on our current buyback authorization. Last but not least, we are financing this transaction 100% with cash on our balance sheet.

    As we noted on our Q2 earnings call, we ended the quarter with cash and liquid assets at holding companies of $6.6 billion. Even after the transaction and the completion of our buyback authorization, we still expect to continue to be above our target range. We are moving forward and targeting to close on the Versant acquisition by year-end".

    After fundamental analysis, business / industry research, and a conservative DCF estimation I was fully prepared to jump in but... Hubbard, R. Glenn is in the board of Directos. Was this guy not involved in de-regulation of derivatives going into 2008? Any opinions?

    Normally I would like insurance companies for the "stability" and high dividend yield. But I am learning that these companies tend to be value traps. YES you will get your dividend but share price appreciation is "AWFUL". On June 1 2014 price per share was $49.52, today (3/23/2019) its $41.79 with the S&P 500 only 5% off its all time high. Time to face the facts Insurers are not good longer term investments, (maybe a good trade). By the way......same story with Prudential and Principal Financial, it's NOT just MET.
