    Help. I simply can not understand their latest quarterly figures. Good, bad, indifferent? Have never seen such convoluted accounting.

    Why NO dividend?

    I thought bhf benefits from higher interest rates, yet share price is down.

    Curiosity: Here we have a $35 stock with a 2021 P/E of 3 based on estimates of $11.55 eps and the board can't even raise a bored "Ho Hum" ! Why? I'm accumulating shares off $1 to $2 swings. I'm doing the same thing with UNM and FHN. The money is in the zig zags, not in the buy and hold!

    This stock looks like an absolute powerhouse from a technical viewpoint:
    Book value = 194.48
    Cash on hand covers their debt by 2x
    Increasing revenue
    Shareholder equity is 5x the market cap
    Free cashflow is $36
    Bookprice steadily increasing
    Peg ratio = .04

    The only problem I could find with this thing is that the free cashflow is slowly decreasing each quarter.

    I'll do some comparing of this stock to the industry and dig deeper into their SEC filings. This is very weird.

    In the zacks article about the earnings report they mention 4.3 billion in cash and cash equivalents. So that is basically the market cap? Book value per share is $125. So shouldn't the share price be much higher? What am I missing?

    Anyone care to guess what the earnings report means, exactly?

    Was Brighthouse Financial a spinoff of Met Life?
    I own 2 shares of BHF and don't know where they came from. I also own some Metlife Financial also.
    Thank you

    Down 7% on 300k volume? Really? How does roughly $10 million in shares traded effect $300 million in market cap? I hope it is just as effected on low volume on the way up!

    They made more repurchases in 1st quarter than they planned for whole 2020. So even thought it's temporarily suspended, they plan to resume it by year's end.

    If anyone understands today's quarterly financial report, can you please interpret it for us - good, bad, indifferent? Thank you!

    This should appreciate by 5x over the next 5 years as long as buybacks resume while price is still cheap. 2 insurance companies bought at book value this week. Be patient and wait for the dividend.

    Beat on revenue and non gaap. Massive loss on gaap earnings?

    Just came across reading about this one as no. 1 lowest PE Stock. Have some shares of UNM right behind it.
    Both seem better as value stocks at these prices.
    Interesting that UNM has dividends while this one is buying back a lot of stock at low prices.

    I don't understand their financial reporting. Are they truly making huge profits or is this just an accounting trick?

    What is really amazing or telling is that there have been zero insider purchases even as "cheap" as this stock appears to be.
