MetLife to pay $1M to settle MA case over unpaid pensions, Reuters says

MetLife will pay a $1M fine to settle claims that it made misleading statements to investors in failing to pay pension benefits to thousands of retirees it improperly treated as "presumed dead," Reuters reports, citing comments from Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin. MetLife will provide payments, with interest, to hundreds of Massachusetts retirees and beneficiaries as part of the settlement. Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Big Lots (BIG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst Anthony Chukumba saying the company got off to a "tough start in fiscal 2018 with a store sales decline and continued slowdown in furniture sales." 2. Jounce Therapeutics (JNCE) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Cory Kasimov saying he views the company's ASCO data as disappointing. 3. MetLife (MET) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alex Scott saying he see slower progress towards return on equity improvement and believes some of the upside from capital return acceleration is behind the company at this point. 4. Dollar Tree (DLTR) downgraded to Accumulate from Buy at Gordon Haskett. 5. SM Energy (SM) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Betty Jiang saying she believes SM Energy's discount valuation is appropriate given it has greater than average downside risk in a constrained Permian takeaway environment.

Citi keeps Sell rating on MetLife into December 14 outlook call
Citi analyst Suneet Kamath remains 6% below the consensus estimates for MetLife ahead of the company's outlook call on December 14. Assuming an adjusted 2018 earnings per share baseline of $5.05 and certain 2019 discrete items, the analyst arrives at a pre-growth 2019 earnings per share level of $5.19. As such, the current 2019 consensus of $5.58 implies 7%-8% core earnings growth, which "seems too high" for MetLife's business mix, Kamath tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps a Sell rating on the shares.

MetLife 2019 guidance largely in-line with expectations, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Elyse Greenspan's initial read is that MetLife is pointing to 2019 earnings power roughly in line with the consensus estimate of $5.57 and her estimate of $5.60. The analyst points out that MetLife has proven to be conservative with its guide and "handily beat" its 2018 outlook. She expects the shares to be relatively unchanged following the outlook. Greenspan keeps an Outperform rating on MetLife with a $60 price target.

MetLife price target lowered to $50 from $57 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mark Dwelle said MetLife's near-term guidance was largely consistent with his previous estimates, outside of LatAm and MetLife Holdings. Following the company's guidance call, Dwelle lowered his earnings expectations for LatAm to better reflect foreign exchange headwinds and the legacy runoff unit and lowered his price target on MetLife shares to $50 from $57 to account for recent multiple contraction seen across the life insurance sector. He maintains an Outperform rating on MetLife shares.
