Went to a recruiting event they put on one time at the behest of a freind. Whew. If the office I went to was any indication, the company is deceptive and not headed by very bright people, at least at the office level. This was a long time back, but I got a bad vibe from them culturally, and feel pretty confident in this pick.

In addition, I think their business model is to convince low income / not very financially savvy people to invest. I'd think that would be a tougher sell now than just about any time since their spin-off from American Express. I can't see them going anywhere but down.

Seems to be doing awfully well for a financial services company catering to the "affluent and mass affluent." Given the economic/political atmosphere, I believe the American pie is likely to a) shrink and b) get cut more evenly over the next three years. The affluent will become mass affluent and the mass affluent will become mass.

Execution has been excellent since it was spun out. Earnings growth has been impressive and it hasn't missed any quarters, but their estimates for '08 and '09 have barely been cut since the beginning of the year.

Ameriprice Financial was spun off American Express with great success now as an independent company. The stock has benn preforming well, until recently because the whole market has perform poorly.

The baby boomers are begining to retired, which is a welthy generation that is willing to let others manage their money.

Great buy now that the market has dipped !!!

AMP is positioning to be a power player for the "Boomers". As the Boomer nation becomes older and start to retire the financial planning for this group is going to be a huge market and AMP has made an effort to grab hold of that market. The insiders of this company seem to think that the stock is going up as well. I look for AMP to reach $64.00 or higher by the end of the year.

Ameriprise Financial is a financial planning company spun off from American Express. The separation remains right on track with 75% of the process completed and has been able to establish the Ameriprise financial brand with its market campaign. It has organized itself into 2 operating divisions as asset accumulation and income, and protection accounting for 70% and 30% of the revenues respectively. Ameriprise has a deep-rooted advice centric model facilitated by its strong talent pool of Certified Financial Planners. These help in creating a loyal customer base, acting as a one stop financial house.

Much focus is on improving the return on equity, balance sheet optimization and risk management. Endorsing the same, consolidation of its five life insurance entities into two has freed up capital of over $120 million. In protection segment it finished as the leader in variable universal life insurance and asset accumulation products. However the management expects continuous revenue pressure from declining spread income based on declining trends relating to fixed annuity and certificate account balances for 2007.

Ameriprise sees huge growth potential in the mass affluent segment of population who mainly constitute the baby boomer nearing retirement. The strong equity environment has helped its earning growth in 2006. Though assets under management increased 14%, redemptions in RiverSource mutual funds and poor investment returns seem to be an area of concern. The firm has strengthened its distribution reach through institutional and other third party channels like banks and banks to attract fund inflows.

In spite of having an excellent distribution channel, supported by a good employee retention metrics the fund outflow, regulatory and fierce competition makes life difficult for Ameriprise and chances of double-digit growth look dim.
