churchill2: Further to my post of last month A1A continues to power ahead. The Company reached an all time high on Friday. The value increased to £120 billion. A £13 billion increase in one month while in the same period the Pru rose a more sedate £2 billion. Two other points to mention Pulse reached 15 million downloads in December and the increase in income returns on USA bonds that Insurance companies hold. The upcoming year end figures for both companies will make a compelling comparison but at this moment in time the Pru I repeat is decidedly under valued.
churchill2: I am not so sure about share price weakness. Weak when compared to the performance of large tech US companies. However since its low point at the end of October and the positive news of vaccines the share price has risen 44%. This is the ninth day on the trot the share price has risen. Also take in to account the near current £2 a share from M&G plus generous dividends paid with cash bestowed by the PRU on the split. Reasons to be cautiously optimistic. 1. The strength of the Dow Jones will auger well for the proposed IPO of Jackson notwithstanding exchange rate volatility. 2. Pru in Asia is approximately 60% of the size of A1A. A!A is currently valued at £107 billion compared with £35 billion for the PRU (including Jackson) 3.The PRU seems to be confident that PULSE in Asia has reached out to the younger generations and hopefully will add future customers. 4. This pandemic should encourage people to be more active in safeguarding their futures.
churchill2: Hi rimau1 I agree with your observation that the Pru looks cheap and well done with your timely purchase. I have been comparing Pru with one of our main Asian competitors namely A1A ( who sponsor the Spurs football shirt). As of today A1A are capitalised at just over 100 billion pounds in comparison to just under 33 billion for the Pru. Comparisons are not easy but there financial reports are date wise the same and both US dollar related. The first thing that hits you. In the first half of 2020 A1A adjusted operating profit of $2933m 58 per cent came from China/HK. For the same period the Pru adjusted operating is $2541m. Stripping out USA the Asian portion is $1733 of which China/HK is 29 per cent which indicates why the Pru is so lowly rated. The other statistic that highlights the differential is the EV which for the Pru is $37.3 billion Asia $48.9 if you include USA as against $61.4 billion for A1A. The vaccine will have increased the value of Jackson whichever way its separated. The Pru has laid out a huge coverage in China so as Dan Loeb has intimated its time to take the opportunity on offer. It seems obvious to me that the Pru is way undervalued compared with A1A. The other point together they would make almost a perfect fit plus there is Ping AN hovering in the background.
churchill2: I was confused by the recent Pulse video on the Pru Website. Was it an attempt to raise Shareholder morale during a period of weak share performance. May be the opposite in that Pulse is proving to be an outstanding success and will lead to a sizeable increase in business. There was no update on the eight million downloads reached early August or any other additional information to help form an opinion.
essentialinvestor: Dipped a toe back in today, or half a toe at this stage. Hi Rim, firstly on posts I'm often just thinking out loud and sometimes attempting to clarify my own thoughts on a subject. PRU has always been hammered on corrective equity markets, at least as far as I can remember back. Re the yield comments, many investors previously referenced the compounding PRU dividend, it was a handy income hold for some. Yes agree with you about higher growth v lower dividend- effectively they are investing more in growth and paying less to investors (at least for now). The M&G split of course played a part in that. Hope that at least half answers your question. Think these may be available under £9, or very close. Good fortune with your holding BTW.
rimau1: I don’t disagree Porsche although there are a bunch of Chinese companies wanting to list in London to access wider investment and ironically given china US relations a UK listing is still attractive. I would love to see Pru take a primary listing in HK. Surely it will rename as PruAsia, but maybe a dual listing is more realistic. In anycase i will continue to add at these levels, growth prospects are huge and a well covered 3.5% growing yield is not to be sniffed at. Not sure why everyone gravitates towards AV, LGEN with zero growth prospects.
churchill2: That was some week. Over 20% increase. Prudential and MNG are nearly back to the demerger share prices of 1286p and 220p. As of tonight PRU closed at 1264p and MNG 165p plus 36p of dividends paid out. With the headwinds of riots in Hong Kong prior to Coronavirus and further national security legislation from the Chinese Communist Party that shows a fair bit of resilience. The question is how dangerous is the latest interference from Beijing especially with the USA/China relationship deteriorating rapidly. On the other hand the Pru is in partnership with a Chinese bank and does seem to have a good relationship with the Chinese authorities but HK is so vital. Plenty to think about this weekend.
luderitz: The more I hear about China over the years the more I really don’t want to visit. The negative Pru share price performance should be temporary so not to concerned.
essentialinvestor: I would guess that the PRU share price will continue not be highly volatile with rapid whipsaw moves in either direction. Not necessarily a bad situation for those wanting to trade it, however I'm getting a bit old for that.
essentialinvestor: Prudential will be regulated from Hong Kong post demerger, they also have a partnership with a Chinese owned company. New restrictions may possibly impact pension licences etc. However, as previously mentioned increasing China tensions are like kryptonite to the PRU share price.
