churchill2: Lack of confidence. If you are confident in the future whether you are Chinese, British or American you make decisions to buy a life insurance contract,annuity or unit trust. At the moment we have trade wars, Brexit, money coming out of drooping share prices etc. so its not hard to see why the odds ate stacked against a company like the Pru. The share price being so weak suggests the worst is not over reflected in Wall Street up 600 points yesterday had little or no effect here today. Do not despair though Prudential are financially strong with good management that should see us through this difficult period.
chasbas: Share price down 14% over 1 year! Why so weak?
dogwalker: You've almost got what you wanted then. And the share price - up 3.67% - has taken the results well.
churchill2: 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.
shieldbug: 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.
churchill2: 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.
rsharman: Why the big recent fall in share price please.
churchill2: 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.
christh: Prudential PLC's Asia Arm Helps Lift 1st Half Profit; To Merge UK Businesses 10/08/2017 10:34am Dow Jones News By Razak Musah Baba LONDON--Prudential PLC (PRU.LN) more than doubled its first half net profit helped by a strong growth in its Asia business and said Thursday it will merge its U.K. businesses. The financial services group's net profit during the six months ended June 30, rose to 1.51 billion pounds ($1.96 billion) from GBP687 million a year earlier. 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 ------------------------------------ £20 target price
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.
