- Attractive valuations, Metlife remains at the lower end of its historical P/E range on the back of uncertainties regarding its SIFI designation
- Attractive and sustainable dividend yield backed by strong FCF generation
- Strong leverage to rising interest rates in the US which I see as a big theme in the latter parts of 2015
- Solid diversified portfolio, financial flexibility, ample capital adequacy and strong market position with a meaningful presence in more countries than Prudential

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

It's up a lot this year, of course, but still looks cheap. (Life insurers in general still look cheap.)

Judging that Metlife has the contract for many reserve military members for dental. I see Metlife going up...

P/E, profitability, seems unlike me to say this but I also like their marketing/brand recognition via sports.

Hard to ignore this ridiculous valuation at 6x 2013 earnings. MET is a strong brand with a much improved balance sheet.

Life insurance is one of the safest bets anywhere, and this stock is probably undervalued. Factor in that the stock has about 10 Billion in free cash on hand (compared to a market cap of 40Bil) I think the metrics make sense.

Obviously, you're not going to see a 100% ROI, but I dont think youre going to see a 3-5% return either.

It's cheap, and may spin off it's banking branch which should allow the company to enhance shareholder value without regulatory interference
