Outperform
MetLife initiated with an Outperform at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Andrew Kligerman started MetLife with an Outperform rating and $67 price target as he believes its low valuation appears not to reflect the less equity-sensitive nature of its strong remaining businesses and likely a 12% ROE by 2020, supported by organic growth, capital management, and sizable cost savings.
