    RPT-U.S. insurers' coronavirus costs are less than feared so far

    The coronavirus pandemic dealt a relatively modest $2.5 billion blow to five insurers with large U.S. operations in the second quarter - a cost that was far less than feared and which the industry has absorbed without touching capital, analysts said. American International Group Inc and Chubb Ltd said payouts on claims related to the disease accounted for most of their financial hit, which was mostly on property and casualty policies. Others including Travelers Companies Inc, MetLife Inc and Prudential Financial Inc lost money on their private equity investments due to market declines in the first quarter, which are reported on a three-month lag.

    Price Over Earnings Overview: MetLife

    Right now, MetLife Inc. (NYSE: MET) share price is at $37.16, after a 3.03% drop. Over the past month, the stock increased by 5.00%, but over the past year, it actually fell by 20.78%. With questionable short-term performance like this, and great long-term performance, long-term shareholders might want to start looking into the company's price-to-earnings ratio.The stock is currently higher from its 52 week low by 62.63%. Assuming that all other factors are held constant, this could present itself as an opportunity for investors trying to diversify their portfolio with Insurance--Life stocks, and capitalize on the lower share price observed over the year.The P/E ratio measures the current share price to the company's EPS. It is used by long-term investors to analyze the company's current performance against its past earnings, historical data and aggregate market data for the industry or the indices, such as S&P 500. A higher P/E indicates that investors expect the company to perform better in the future, and the stock is probably overvalued, but not necessarily. It also shows that investors are willing to pay a higher share price currently, because they expect the company to perform better in the upcoming quarters. This leads investors to also remain optimistic about rising dividends in the future.View more earnings on METDepending on the particular phase of a business cycle, some industries will perform better than others.MetLife Inc. has a lower P/E than the aggregate P/E of 9.79 of the Insurance--Life industry.

    Metlife stock falls after insurer's Q2 profit comes below forecast

    Shares of MetLife Inc. fell more than 5% in the extended session Wednesday after the insurer reported a second-quarter profit below Wall Street expectations. MetLife reported a net income of $68 million, or 7 cents a share, compared with $1.7 billion, or $1.77 a share in the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted for one-time items, the company earned $758 million, or 83 cents a share, compared with adjusted earnings of $1.3 billion, or $1.38 a share, a year ago. Revenue fell 20% to 14.1 billion. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected GAAP earnings of 78 cents a share and adjusted earnings of 90 cents a share for the quarter. Due to COVID-19, global face-to-face sales remain "challenging," with continued sales pressure in most segments, Metlife said. Underwriting margins are mostly offsetting global claims impact from COVID-19, the company said. Shares of Metlife ended the regular trading day up 3.7%.
