Total revenue, net of reinsurance rose 21% to GBP43.01 billion from GBP35.54 billion a year earlier. "Our successful strategy, innovative products and strong execution have driven growth across all of our main performance measures led by double-digit growth in our Asian business. We have achieved our objective of generating over GBP10 billion of group cumulative free surplus between Jan. 1, 2014 and Dec. 31, six months early and we remain on track to achieve the remaining Asia-focused objectives by the end of this year," Group Chief Executive Mike Wells said. more here https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/prudential-PRU/share-news/Prudential-PLCs-Asia-Arm-Helps-Lift-1st-Half-Profi/75422960 ------------------------------------ £20 target price

churchill2: Yes the share price particularly strong in the last week which suggests half year figures will be positive. Also will be interesting to see if management update shareholders on their recent entry into Africa as a fourth leg of the business. Rumours are that UK is to be of less importance in the near future.

churchill2: Positive statement. Company firing on all cylinders. Profit numbers for Asia and the States very encouraging. Surprised at the muted response in the share price but Prudential has had a good run of late so a pause at this stage is to be expected.

churchill2: Tomorrow is the Annual General Meeting. Hopefully shareholders will be updated on current trading year to date. A lot wlll depend on whether the rapid rate of growth in Asia has been maintained. Other factors include improvement in the situation experienced by Jackson in the States last year. Also in the UK some progress may have been made regarding the large provision made to cover the cost of the review and redress of annuity sales practices. There is a fair amount of optimism built into the current share price so we need a positive statement. Fingers crossed.

churchill2: Figures due Tuesday week the 14th. I should imagine they will make good reading. Funds under management with both Eastsping and MG reflecting the strength in Stock Markets around the world. Also security backing for our liabilities and solvency should be signficantly improved and the possibility of a further special dividend. No doubt there will be a fly in the ointment possibly Jackson in the States but the share price seems to be anticipating further progress.

vacendak: Ex-date today: 12.93 per share, up 0.6p from the same interim last year. As usual, steady as she goes. Now if that share price could go back up a bit for good instead of hovering at £13-£14, that would be slightly more exciting.

thomasthetank1: Read Panmure's note on Prudential (PRU), out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/companies/uk/life_insurance/prudential_plc … “Following the 2015 year end results we are cutting our operating earnings forecasts for 2016/17 by 8% and 10% respectively. Although our new EPS forecasts are lower than 2015, it is worth highlighting the latter benefitted from c£400m of one-off UK ‘management actions’. Excluding this positive impact we are forecasting further continued progress in 2016 over 2015. The 10p/share special dividend announced in February was in line with our view that Pru is overcapitalised and has excess capital to return to shareholders. Although the share price has been under pressure this year reflecting lower investment markets and others have cut their target prices we maintain…̶1;

mike740: From The Motley Fool today........ Aviva plc, Legal & General Group Plc And Prudential plc Have Completely Thrashed This Market By Harvey Jones - Wednesday, 19 November, 2014 When I did a portfolio spring clean earlier this year there were two stocks I didn’t even consider dumping: insurance giants Aviva (LSE: AV) and Prudential (LSE: PRU). I’m glad I held onto them, because both have thrashed the wider stock market, as has the other big name in the life sector, Legal & General Group (LSE: LGEN). How To Crush The Market While the FTSE 100 has stagnated over the last 12 months, Aviva is up 25%, L&G is up 16% and the Pru is up 18%. That’s tremendous performance in what should have been a difficult period, given market stagnation, and Chancellor George Osborne’s radical pensions overhaul, which instantly halved annuity sales. Pru’s Aim Is True Pru has smashed analyst expectations again, with double-digit growth year-to-date in both new business profits and annual premiums across its three life businesses in the UK, US and Asia. Its asset management business also saw net inflows of £9.6bn, including strong performance in the UK. The Pru share price is up 150% over the last three years, and although its 2.23% dividend yield disappoints, there is plenty of scope for progression on that front. A Legal Matter L&G also has momentum on its side, its share price up 136% over three years. Q3 results showed impressive growth in revenues, operating profits, customers and net cash, and a continuing strong return on equity. Individual annuity sales fell 60%, but the bulk annuity market is more than compensating, while its investment management business saw total assets increase by £82bn to £676bn. Its 3.8% yield trumps both Prudential and the FTSE 100 average of 3.5%. Viva Aviva Aviva is playing catch up with its runaway rivals, but I bought it as a recovery play, and it is steadily getting there. Its net asset value is up 10% year-to-date, new business is up 15% by value and its general insurance combined ratio has improved to 95.9%. Aviva may lack Prudential’s exposure to fast-growing Asian markets, but its tighter focus on the UK and Europe has served it well. Although its 2.8% yield hardly thrills. Reassuringly Expensive All three insurers benefit from low interest rates (which force savers to consider more dynamic alternatives), ageing Western and Asian populations, and the push to encourage private pension provision. Success comes at a price, however. All three look expensive right now, with L&G and the Pru trading at around 16 times earnings, and Aviva at 24 times. Given their breakneck growth, that may be a price worth paying.
