Regulators mull relieving Prudential of federal oversight, WSJ reports

The Financial Stability Oversight Council of senior regulators is readying to vote on whether to remove Prudential Financial from federal oversight and its designation as a "systemically important financial institution," as soon as next week in the latest move to undo Obama-era policies that brought stricter scrutiny to large financial firms, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the matter. The council has been expected to deregulate Prudential since the start of the Trump administration and removing fed oversight of the firm is a matter of when, not if, according to one person familiar with the council's discussions.

Barclays double downgrades Brighthouse to Underweight on lack of catalysts
Barclays analyst Jay Gelb double downgraded Brighthouse Financial (BHF) to Underweight from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $42 from $60. The analyst expects a "persistent low" return on equity profile for Brighthouse. Further, he sees a lack of potential catalysts now that the company has announced a share repurchase authorization faster than anticipated. Brighthouse's valuation is low, but other names in the space offer greater upside potential, Gelb tells investors in a research note. His Overweight-rated Life Insurance stocks include Prudential (PRU), Unum Group (UNM) and Principal Financial (PFG).

JPMorgan sees attractive risk/rewards for life insurance stocks
Life insurance stocks offer attractive risk/reward profiles at current share levels, JPMorgan analyst Jimmy Bhullar tells investors in a research note. The analyst, who's been cautious on the sector for the past two years, says that while his fundamental view "remains mixed," the macro environment has improved, investor sentiment has become negative, and valuation levels are more reasonable following the group's significant underperformance. He maintains Overweight ratings on Aflac (AFL), Lincoln National (LNC), and Prudential (PRU) and reiterates his negative stance on Brighthouse Financial (BHF).
