Sell
Brighthouse Financial initiated with a Sell at Citi
Citi analyst Suneet Kamath started Brighthouse Financial with a Sell rating and $50 price target. The analyst sees an unfavorable risk/reward profile given his sum-of-the-parts analysis. Brighthouse's "sizable" below-the-line-charges will result in near-term economic earnings and returns on equity that are "much lower than operating statistics," the analyst contends.
