    With a 5% dividend, share buybacks, and a low p/e, these shares look very enticing. Might add some more here.

    Morgan Stanley comments:
    "“We view the announcement today of MetLife’s planned acquisition of Versant health positively. Not only is the transaction consistent with its strategy of growing low capital intensive non-medical health operations, but it also demonstrates management confidence in their current capital position, with the company also announcing plans to complete their existing buyback plan this year, implying roughly $0.5 billion of buybacks by year-end,” said Nigel Dally, equity analyst at Morgan Stanley".

    Anyone has the problem with MetLife whole life policy? I suppose to receive a bill by now indicating how much I need to pay annually since I select my payment is policy premium minus dividend. I called two weeks ago and still not receive my bill. I called in this morning, fall into transfer loop. I believe no body knew this year's dividend so no one know what is my bill should be? Is it next Enron or AIG in cooking?

    I sold my MET this morning. Since the shares was rewarded when MET in IPO, so I can only sell it in batch mood. I do not know what batch mood meaning. I am contemplating cash out my policy to take the money.

    Hope it is not the case. But why it is so difficult to get my annually bill this time around.

    From Conference Call held yesterday:
    "As always, we carefully weigh every use of capital against the alternatives. Our goal is to achieve the right balance between investing in growth and returning capital to create long-term shareholder value. With Versant, our confidence could not be higher that we are making the right investment at the right time in the right business.

    As noted in our press release, we are also pleased to announce that we are resuming share repurchases. By the end of the year, we expect to complete the remaining $485 million on our current buyback authorization. Last but not least, we are financing this transaction 100% with cash on our balance sheet.

    As we noted on our Q2 earnings call, we ended the quarter with cash and liquid assets at holding companies of $6.6 billion. Even after the transaction and the completion of our buyback authorization, we still expect to continue to be above our target range. We are moving forward and targeting to close on the Versant acquisition by year-end".

    I'm in the insurance business, it's hard to by the actual companies. Only UHC/Humana have revenue growth over the next decade. Behmonths like PRU/MET will slowly be zombies.

    Met could be an OKAY stock as long as they increase dividends/buybacks and slash costs.

    My father’s favor saying was “You send them to school and they eat the books”...That was his way of saying “Be Patient and use Common Sense”,,,Now that I am an AARP member, I can understand...My four over educated children keep giving me get rich advice...Fortunately, I was too ignorant to take their advice and used my own investment philosophy...I sat down and established a retirement budget and invested according to the needs of that budget... I earn an 8% dividend on that budget and all capital gains are rolled over to maintain that cash flow...Thanks MetLife for your dependable Dividend...

    I’m sitting in At 296 shares, I know it’s not allot but it’s enough for me to say that the dividends are GRAVY GOOD! I regret not buying more during the COVID drop. I’m still at green I can sell and make a profit but I plan to keep forever! I have MetLife insurance, they covered 80% of $8500 for medical work for for me and dental work for my 3 kids. I’m happy with them. I’m slowly buying more shares while it’s still cheap.

    BND is a Vanguard Bond fund and way outperforms MET.. Sell MET and buy BND if this an income investment. All the minimal gain from the last 5yrs has been lost and will most likely never come back.. It will take years to get back to what a decent bond fund offers.. MET similar to IBM is a yesteryear investment.

    Is the Dividend safe with declining revenue, profit, and investment losses?

    If 10 yr. interest rates rose to even 3%, this company would be selling for over 100.
