Matrix after matrix...MET out ranks PRU...except market price/share. The latter is $ 35 vs $57 or some $22 bucks... P/E MET = 5.39 vs PRU 7.98. Book value /market share price, MET = $1.68, whereas PRU = $1.43. There always seems to be some advantage PRU has over MET, yet the measurements we often use...suggest that the price/share should be much closer. $22 difference is absurd...my opinion.
