churchill2: Hi 1jat It is very unusual for a CEO and CFO to be asked to leave immediately. Obviously something has gone wrong and they are being held responsible.I agree with you the replacements look temporary stopgaps rather than new dynamic management. However this is just a sideshow the real action is HK. Must be some good news in the pipeline for the dramatic recovery in the share price.It just strikes me that whatever portion floats on the HK exchange investors will be drawn to the huge disparity with A1A. Not long to wait and all will be revealed.
churchill2: It seems that there must have been some shenanigans going on at Jackson. The CEO and CFO were sacked this week by a combination of Pru and Athene. It must have come as a shock to Falcon the CEO because at the Transformation update meeting a couple of weeks ago he was enthusiastically answering questions on the future of a demerged Jackson. Interestingly Andre the CFO was not asked to reply to any question. It would not surprise me if the Demerger was abandoned for a straight sale or some kind of deal with Athene.
whatja: Unlikely a rights issue will take place as does not broaden the shareholder base.... Expect a book build in HK and Singapore selling to institutions who may ultimately resell to Asian retail investors. Wish I could sell my entitlement to Jackson and buy new equity. Memo to self...get rid of any certificated Pru shares as that will mean certificated Jackson stock and more costs to sell in the future.
its the oxman: Hi Suet , yes happy to buy at these levels. Suspect Pru will rally hard once money has been raised. Till then it will stay down I guess. Asia exposure is a plus, hopefully Pru will be bid for and be taken out for a big premium one day.
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.
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.
