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).

Boeing, Tesla, Nvidia make Morgan Stanley 'key man risk' list
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Mark Savino noted that about 12% of CEO jobs among S&P 500 companies turned over in 2017, noting that this was the highest level of CEO departures since before the financial crisis. The 59 stocks of S&P 500 companies that had CEOs depart in 2017 underperformed the market by 11% over the next 12 months, or since the departure for instances that were less than 12 months ago, noted Savino. In cooperation with the firm's U.S. analysts, Savino and his team identified the companies in each sector they believe face the greatest level of "key man risk," which includes: Boeing (BA), Tesla (TSLA), ADT Inc. (ADT), Moody's (MCO), TransUnion (TRU), Arista Networks (ANET), Church & Dwight (CHD), Coca-Cola (KO), Monster Beverage (MNST), Coupa Software (COUP), Salesforce (CRM), FireEye (FEYE), MongoDB (MDB), Microsoft (MSFT), New Relic (NEWR), XPO Logistics (XPO), Hilton (HLT), Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Best Buy (BBY), Ulta (ULTA), Aflac (AFL), Athene Holding (ATH), Lincoln National (LNC), Arthur J.

As previously reported, Sandler ONeill analyst John Barnidge upgraded Aflac to Buy from Hold citing its better fundamentals, as he believes its Q2 report demonstrated that there is pent up demand for its products and that the company "appears to have finally cracked" distribution of its products in the U.S. While the company is often comped as a life insurer, in many ways it is not, said Barnidge, who views the stock's valuation as attractive. He raised his price target on Aflac shares to $52 from $50.

Zaremski estimates Progressive has telematics data on approximately 25% of its customers, and expects this number to more than double in the coming 24 months, which will enable Progressive to further refine its underwriting factors to price risk more accurately and continue attracting the industry's best risks.

Zaremski thinks both companies are in the early innings of deploying their telematics data to improve their underwriting, claims, and marketing capabilities. Allstate has roughly 1M policyholders that are using its app or plug-in device, representing about 5% of its customer base, he notes, adding he expects this number to more than double in the coming 18 months, which will provide Allstate with enough data to extrapolate predictive analytics across its entire portfolio to price risk more accurately.

Brown & Brown (BRO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Mark Hughes saying the company stands to benefit from commission gains in the Florida market, contribution from the company's sales incentive program, reduced investments costs, and the anticipated tax reform impact which could add up to 55c to the fiscal 2019 earnings per share target of $2.25. 3. L3 Technologies (LLL) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Matt McConnell citing the company's investor day presentation. McConnell says the event highlighted the company's position combining the "best-in-defense runway for operating margin improvement, near-term organic growth acceleration, and bolt-on M&A potential". 4. Carnival (CCL) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Jamie Rollo stating that the firm's survey of U.S. travel agents suggested strong demand for cruises in November, which he notes is usually a slow month for bookings. 5.

Citi downgrades RenaissanceRe to Neutral ahead of expected pricing declines
Citi analyst James Naklicki downgraded RenaissanceRe (RNR) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $139 from $153. The analyst expects a decline in U.S. property catastrophe reinsurance pricing on January 1, which he says would be a headwind for RenaissanceRe and the other reinsurers. Year to date combined ratios for the Bermuda reinsurers have been in the mid-90's, a level of profitability that won't support higher pricing, says Naklicki. As such, he expect rates to decline by 2% on January 1. This could pressure the stocks around the beginning of the year when several important pricing surveys are released by the brokers, contends the analyst. He recommends putting money to work in the brokers, and prefers Aon (AON) and Willis Towers Watson (WLTW). Deutsche Bank last night upgraded shares of RenaissanceRe to Buy from Hold.
