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.
