Brighthouse downgraded to Hold following early year rally at Sandler O'Neill
As previously reported, Sandler O'Neill analyst John Barnidge downgraded Brighthouse Financial to Hold from Buy, noting that the stock has been the best performing life insurer in its peer group year-to-date. Stating that his downgrade is not a valuation call, Barnidge said he would anticipate a reversal in book value when the company reports earnings following the performance of the company's hedging program during the volatile financial market environment during Q4. The former CFO was "the face of the hedging program to the investment community" and the new CFO will likely be an external hire and not be in place for several months, believes Barnidge, who thinks this creates a level of uncertainty. He maintained his 2019 and 2020 EPS estimates for Brighthouse and lowered his price target on the shares to $42 from $43.
