Lincoln National announces reinsurance transaction with Athene Holding

Lincoln Financial Group (LNC) announced it has entered into an agreement with a subsidiary of Athene Holding (ATH), to reinsure approximately $7.7B of in-force fixed and fixed indexed annuity products. The capital generated from the transaction, including a ceding commission paid by Athene combined with the release of capital, will predominantly be used to fund share repurchases up to $500M, most of which will be executed through an accelerated share repurchase program. The transaction is expected to be accretive to Lincoln Financial's earnings per share in 2019. Under the terms of the reinsurance agreement, Lincoln Financial will retain account administration and recordkeeping of the annuity policies. The transaction will have no impact on Lincoln Financial's relationship with, and commitments to, its distribution partners and policyholders. Additionally, Lincoln Financial remains focused on the continued growth of both its fixed and variable annuity businesses, with plans to introduce new products and further expand distribution partners to achieve successful long-term growth. The transaction was dated December 7, 2018 and is effective as of October 1, 2018. The agreement is structured as a modified coinsurance treaty with counterparty protections around investment guidelines and overcollateralization established to meet Lincoln Financial's risk management objectives.

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.

Lincoln National upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Alex Scott upgraded Lincoln National to Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $70 from $69.

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).
