Primerica reports Q1 life insurance sales growth of 7%

The life insurance licensed sales force grew 7% to 130,156 representatives at the end of the second quarter, primarily driven by a 5% increase in new life insurance licenses compared with the prior year period. In the second quarter of 2018, nearly 84,000 Term Life insurance policies were issued reflecting productivity of 0.22 policies per life insurance licensed representative per month. Productivity continues to be at the high end of our historical range and the number of policies issued this quarter was consistent with the prior year period, which benefited from our biennial convention. In the second quarter, Investment and Savings Product income before income taxes grew to $43.2 million, up 9% from the prior year period. Sales-based revenues grew 6% generally in line with revenue-generating product sales growth, while total product sales grew 12% year-over-year reflecting strong growth in managed account sales, which do not generate sales-based revenue. Variable annuity sales increased 22%, reflecting a favorable market environment and enhanced product offerings.

Primerica downgraded to Hold at SunTrust on near-peak valuation
As previously noted, SunTrust analyst Mark Hughes downgraded Primerica to Hold from Buy, saying the company will be challenged to sustain its growth relative to multi-year comparisons in Term Life and Investment & Savings areas. Hughes adds that while Q3 should still have some tailwinds due to equity market strength and recruiting interest, potential upside is reflected in valuation. The analyst keeps his $95 price target on Primerica.

Primerica price target raised to $118 from $105 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Mark Hughes raised his price target on Primerica to $118, saying the company's fundamentals in Term Life and Investment/Savings was similar in Q1, while its push into managed accounts could become a future catalyst. The analyst also kept his Hold rating on Primerica, warning that its recent weakness in annuities may be indicative of slowing sales growth going forward.
