Deutsche Bank Reiterates Buy, Raises PT on Lincoln National (LNC)


August 6, 2013 10:50 AM EDT

Deutsche Bank reiterated a Buy on Lincoln National (NYSE: LNC) and boosted its price target to $50.00 (from $45.00).

Analysts said, "Reduced balance sheet risk along with by Coupon Companion Plugin">interest rate improvement has lifted valuation to 1x BV ex. AOCI. However, we argue that such valuation is compelling for a franchise that generated an 11.8% operating ROE over the last twelve months and is reporting double-digit profitable sales growth even as interest headwinds subside."
