Great value today, so you get the results plus whatever multiple expansion available from here. Buy when cheap sell when fully valued, rinse ... repeat.

This looks very cheap, right now.

Less than six times earnings per share;
a little over three times cash flow per share;
.8 book value;
plus it pays a nice dividend with room to grow.

Easily outperforms the S&P in a bull market, but terribly underperforms the S&P in a market downturn. Recent 10% S&P pullback took 19% off of Prudential.

Low financial metrics numbers of 6.1 price / earnings, and less than 1 on PEG, price / sales, and price / book. Has a 12.8% profit margin on nearly $60 billion in revenue. Dividend has just been raised again, now at $0.90 per quarter for a 3.3% forward rate.

Five year (2012-2017) compound annual growth rates (CAGR) of 11% for earnings and 9% for book value.

Reported earnings are unpredictable: they have been running between $2 and $3 per quarter, while the average analyst estimates have hovered around $2.65. Recent analysts' upgrades to the company have moved the average estimate up to $2.96 for the next quarter.

Short sellers are down at 0.85% of float, so they are not signaling unanticipated dangers.
This is a large cap stock in a mature industry, but with the recent pullback it should outperform the S&P until the next market downturn. As a long term hold, the dividend looks reasonable today, and will look better and better over time.
