    How do we play HIG? Buy LNC, MET?

    For those of us who didn't have the fortune to own HIG prior to earnings, let's hear some suggestions on how to play this news.

    I'm leaning towards LNC and MET to get a boost tomorrow morning.

    Anyone else got any suggestions/ideas?

        UBS resumes coverage of the US Life Insurers -Update

        UBS is resuming coverage with a neutral-to-positive stance on their life sector. The firm says their stance reflects stable (albeit, subpar) intermediate-term returns and compelling valuations. They say despite the recent run-up in their life group, P/B valuations are still far below the historic pre-mid-‘08 trough of 1.2x and average of ~1.9x. As mentioned earlier the firm is resuming coverage with: a) Buy ratings on AMP, GNW, HIG, LNC, MET, PNX, PRU, and RGA; b) a Neutral for AFL, AIG, CNO, MFC, NFP, and PL; and c) a Sell on PFG. The firm says HIG and PRU are their most favorite stocks; PFG is least favorite.
