    Q2 Earnings were absolutely massive with net income of 1.82/share. Forward guidance increased dramatically. Fantastic news!

    Nice quarter. Good guidance. It would be great to see more aggressive buybacks over paying dividends but whatever. Let’s get UNM back on a winning streak

    I never thought I’d see the day when a company beats its earnings estimate by over 40%, raises yearly targets for the second time in 3 months yet still can obtain a PE north of 6. While at the same time a movie company flirting with bankruptcy announces a plan to dilute its shareholders an additional 50%, a little over a year after diluting them by 400% and that stock would be up another 10%. I know math is hard, but this new portfolio theory evades me.

    Awesome results. $6.31 outlook for the year. Curious how the price dropped at the end of the day today. Would like to see the share price valuation adjusted to the $40+ price it has deserved for quite awhile now. Q1 results were also good and generated a temporary bump that was not sustained. $40 for a company projecting $6+ for current year earnings, dividend growth, share repurchases and revenue growth is a bargain. Why did it end today at $31?

    When you look at the jobs report from last Friday it means only good things for a company like UNM. Hiring is up, avg wages are up = higher premiums to UNM = higher revenue, profits and cash flow. Add in higher interest rates from the Fed and investment returns will also be better in the future. Can't believe this $50-60 stock is selling for $36.

    yowza, up-scope- huge 56%+ Q2 earnings beat, that's three straight Q's of E beats, not too shabby

    Could the share price approach book value ($48) in the next month or two? If earnings are expected to be 6.25 for this year and the trend is increasing then the multiple on trailing earnings would be 7.6 and the multiple on next year's earnings of $7 would be 6.9. No logic for the stock to be stuck in the $30's. Just praying no one proposes a stupid acquisition to ruin what could be a great run up in the share price.

    I can't find any news on why UNM is down so much today?

    Looks like today is the ex-dividend date. And I read something on Simply W ST about significant insider selling over the last 3 months which is a little bit concerning. UNUM hit $37 back in June but has struggled since. Given the fundamentals, it definitely seems like the stock should be more like $40/share.

    Unum should payout a special dividend on top of the quarter 80cents. payout ratio is low. return capital to the shareholders

    Wasn't too long ago the LTC fears were holding the stock down (insufficient yields), now the reverse will be true!! Here's a shout out to Kick - you were right!
