Amer Equity Invt is Among the Companies in the Life & Health Insurance Industry With the Lowest Projected Earnings Growth (AEL, LNC, AFL, PFG, PRU)

By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Life & Health Insurance industry with the lowest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Amer Equity Invt ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 9.2%. Lincoln Natl Crp is next with a projected earnings growth of 9.4%. Aflac Inc ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 12.2%.

Principal Finl follows with a projected earnings growth of 14.1%, and Prudentl Finl rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 14.8%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Prudentl Finl on February 1st, 2018 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $119.49. Since that call, shares of Prudentl Finl have fallen 12.7%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
