You've almost got what you wanted then. And the share price - up 3.67% - has taken the results well.

Hi westofengland Thanks for those well chosen words which captures the position so adequately. With a population of 2.7 billion people in China and India with Africa to follow there are huge opportunities for the Pru as long as management is up to the task. So far so good so lets see how tomorrow pans out.

Dear Churchill2, Yes, this is a great Company and hopefully we'll see tomorrow some of the progress they are achieving. I sense this is one of the best tuckaways on the stockmarket and once we see the progress in splitting the business, it will be self evident what a powerful business they are creating in Asia one of the regions where people understand the benefits of saving for the long term where the Prudential has longstanding expertise and a trusted brand.

Interesting day tomorrow. I am expecting some ups and downs on the major growth areas. Hopefully the proposed interim dividend will reach 16p. Up to date information on the split and whether Anne Richards will be replaced. The share price could do with a positive outlook.

Interesting points raised. Directors are only allowed to buy shares at certain times in the year so that they are not favoured over shareholders. Weak pound is advantageous to the Pru as results are converted re US and Asia to pound sterling. Half year results will in my opinion for whats its worth depend on growth in Asia especially China and India.Any sign of a slowdown where Pru have such high hopes will go down like a lead balloon.

For a co where management expect to double eps over the next 5-7 years this could bounce strongly if results inspire. Not saying they will this time but after trending sideways for so long it feels overdue a good rally higher.

Not sure but I am guessing the strong dollar and weak pound is not helping the share price? Looking forward to half year results in about 3 weeks time.

Appears to be a lot of director sells since early April - and not a single buy. Last director buy was last December? Not very inspiring.

I agree Oxman - now that the Italy situation is more settled and also Asia the S.P. looks quite over sold.

Hi R Sharman In one word Italy Prudential exposure to sovereign debt held by the shareholder backed business at the end of last year was £16.5 billion. Of this Italy was just 58 million but if the situation goes pear shaped there would be a knock on effect to the rest of the eurozone and the world in general. It would be extremely serious in terms of confidence and valuation. You may ask what is this debt. Governments sell interest bearing bonds to finance there spending. Prudential buy these bonds on the basis they are safe and provide regular income. As we have seen with Greece Italy and the UK the need to stay in power by spending more than getting in from tax receipt is out of control. Is the drop in the share price overdone. Probably and the rebound could be significant if there is a change in sentiment.

Churchill2, I think it is because of the get rich slow and stress free nature of Pru having a good strategy, and executing well. A stark contrast to the excitement and angst of very busy boards like CVR and GNC recently. I suspect ARW will liven up one day too.

Its ironical that on these boards you can read pages and pages of rubbish on second rate companies yet staring them in the face is this first class British company that hardly gets a mention.

Re 415 Has there a deal been done? Perhaps news tomorrow but the share price of Pru and Aviva would signify something could be in the pipeline.
