Once again PRU delivered with good Revenues and Earnings last Friday. We even got a little Divy Inrease.

Capital Deployment

Prudential Financial managed to return capital to its shareholders in the form of share repurchases worth $375 million and dividends worth $443 million in the fourth quarter.

Dividend Hike Announced

Concurrent with fourth-quarter results, Prudential Financial’s board of directors approved a 4% hike in the quarterly dividend. With this, the dividend payout now stands at $1.20 per share compared with the prior payout of $1.15. The increased dividend will be paid on Mar 11, 2022 to shareholders of record as on Feb 15.

Hopefully we pop over the 52 week high on Tuesday, then head towards $125.

Yes, PRU is a great Company.

I've owned since their IPO in December 2001.

Got 50 free Shares due to my Life Insurance Policy, when after 125 years they went from a Private Mutual Company owned by Policyholders to a Public Company and started trading on December 13, 2001 at $27.50.

No sense in selling a freebie that is trading around $100 and kicks out a great Dividend.

Good luck to you...

Prudential $PRU Tanks After Earnings, Here's The Trade

Today, leading insurance and financial services company, Prudential Financial Inc (NYSE:PRU), is falling sharply after reporting earnings. The company cited weakness in its life insurance and annuities businesses. PRU stock is declining lower by 8.85% to $92.34 a share. Traders and investors should note that the stock is now testing its June lows. A break of this level will signal further downside in the near term. The stock has also broken below its important daily chart 200-day moving average. This weakness tells me that the next major support level will be around the $87.00 area. This level is a major retrace level and an area where the stock broke out in mid-January 2019.

Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) today reported net income of its Financial Services Businesses attributable to Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) of $3.531 billion ($7.22 per Common share) for the year ended December 31, 2011, compared to $2.714 billion ($5.75 per Common share) for 2010. After-tax adjusted operating income for the Financial Services Businesses was $3.134 billion ($6.41 per Common share) for 2011, compared to $2.916 billion ($6.17 per Common share) for 2010. Information regarding adjusted operating income, a non-GAAP measure, is provided below.

For the fourth quarter of 2011, net income for the Financial Services Businesses attributed to Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) amounted to $606 million ($1.26 per Common share) compared to $213 million (45 cents per Common share) for the fourth quarter of 2010. After-tax adjusted operating income for the fourth quarter of 2011 for the Financial Services Businesses amounted to $948 million ($1.97 per Common share) compared to $848 million ($1.76 per Common share) for the fourth quarter of 2010.

The Company acquired AIG Star Life Insurance Co., Ltd. and AIG Edison Life Insurance Company on February 1, 2011. Results of the Financial Services Businesses include the results of these businesses from the date of acquisition. Giving effect to the impact of acquisition financing reflecting debt securities and Common shares issued in late 2010 and results of operations, the acquisition resulted in adjusted operating income of approximately 10 cents per Common share for the Financial Services Businesses in the fourth quarter of 2011, before absorption of integration costs during the quarter which amounted to approximately 13 cents per share. Since Gibraltar Life, inclusive of the acquired businesses, is included in the Company’s reported results of operations on a one month lag basis, results of the Financial Services Businesses for the year ended December 31, 2011 include the results for the initial ten months of operations of Star and Edison from the date of acquisition.

As a result of the Company’s sale of its real estate brokerage franchise and relocation services business in December 2011, the results of this business have been classified as divested businesses and excluded from adjusted operating income for all periods presented.

“Our results for the fourth quarter and year were strong and reflect the business momentum we continue to build. Sustained commitment to our selected markets and our financial strength are driving our enhanced competitive position. We focus on maintaining a mix of businesses that have solid financial prospects in a variety of market conditions. During the year, addition of the Star and Edison businesses in Japan and divestiture of several non-core operations have made us a stronger, more focused company. The merger of Star and Edison into Gibraltar Life was successfully completed on January 1, 2012, and the integration of these companies continues on track. We also surpassed significant milestones over the last year, including assets under management over $900 billion and annualized new business premiums over $3 billion in International Insurance. Our solid results through challenging markets enhance our confidence that we will achieve our longer-term objectives,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Strangfeld.

Adjusted operating income is not calculated under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Information regarding adjusted operating income, a non-GAAP measure, is discussed later in this press release under “Forward-Looking Statements and Non-GAAP Measures,” and a reconciliation of adjusted operating income to the most comparable GAAP measure is provided in the tables that accompany this release.

Financial Services Businesses

Prudential Financial’s Common Stock (PRU) reflects the performance of its Financial Services Businesses, which consist of its U.S. Retirement Solutions and Investment Management, U.S. Individual Life and Group Insurance, and International Insurance divisions and its Corporate and Other operations.

In the following business-level discussion, adjusted operating income refers to pre-tax results.

The U.S. Retirement Solutions and Investment Management division reported adjusted operating income of $688 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $624 million in the year-ago quarter.

The Individual Annuities segment reported adjusted operating income of $391 million in the current quarter, compared to $345 million in the year-ago quarter. Current quarter results benefited $121 million from net reductions in reserves for guaranteed minimum death and income benefits, and $59 million from a net reduction in amortization of deferred policy acquisition and other costs, reflecting an updated estimate of profitability for this business. Results for the year-ago quarter included a net benefit of $146 million from adjustment of these items to reflect an update of estimated profitability. These benefits to results for both the current quarter and the year-ago quarter were largely driven by increases in market value of customer accounts during the respective periods. Excluding the effect of the foregoing items, adjusted operating income for the Individual Annuities segment increased $12 million from the year-ago quarter. This increase reflected higher asset-based fees due to growth in variable annuity account values, net of an increased level of related amortization of deferred policy acquisition and other costs in the current quarter. The net benefit from higher asset-based fees was partly offset by higher expenses and financing costs in the current quarter.

The Retirement segment reported adjusted operating income of $142 million for the current quarter, compared to $147 million in the year-ago quarter. The decrease reflected a lower contribution from investment results, which was partly offset by higher fees associated with growth in account values and lower expenses in the current quarter.

The Asset Management segment reported adjusted operating income of $155 million for the current quarter, compared to $132 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase came primarily from higher asset management fees reflecting growth in assets under management, net of expenses. Current quarter results also benefited from higher performance-based fees.

The U.S. Individual Life and Group Insurance division reported adjusted operating income of $201 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $200 million in the year-ago quarter.

The Individual Life segment reported adjusted operating income of $146 million for the current quarter, compared to $131 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase came primarily from adjustments of net amortization of deferred policy acquisition costs and other items based on separate account performance in relation to our assumptions, which had a favorable impact of approximately $20 million on current quarter results and about $10 million on results for the year-ago quarter. In addition, current quarter results benefited from a greater contribution from underwriting results, which reflected growth of universal life and term insurance business in force.

The Group Insurance segment reported adjusted operating income of $55 million in the current quarter, compared to $69 million in the year-ago quarter. The decrease reflected a higher level of expenses in the current quarter, a lower contribution from investment results, and less favorable group disability claims experience than that of the year-ago quarter. These items were partly offset by a greater contribution from group life underwriting results in the current quarter, reflecting growth of business in force and more favorable claims experience.

The International Insurance segment reported adjusted operating income of $692 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $588 million in the year-ago quarter.

Adjusted operating income of the segment’s Life Planner insurance operations was $336 million for the current quarter, compared to $328 million in the year-ago quarter. The $8 million increase in adjusted operating income reflected continued business growth, which was partially offset by less favorable mortality experience in the current quarter.

The segment’s Gibraltar Life and Other operations reported adjusted operating income of $356 million for the current quarter, compared to $260 million in the year-ago quarter. Current quarter results include a benefit of $96 million from the sale of the Company’s stake in Afore XXI, a private pension fund manager in Mexico. In addition, results for the current quarter reflect absorption of $94 million of integration costs related to the Star and Edison businesses acquired on February 1, 2011. Results for the year-ago quarter include a benefit of $66 million from the partial sale of an investment, through a consortium, in China Pacific Group. Excluding these items, adjusted operating income increased $160 million from the year-ago quarter, including an estimated contribution of $128 million from operations of the Star and Edison businesses. The remainder of the increase came primarily from business growth reflecting expanding sales of protection life insurance products.

Foreign currency exchange rates, including the impact of the Company’s currency hedging programs, had a favorable impact of $11 million on segment results in comparison to the year-ago quarter, including $9 million within Gibraltar Life and Other operations.

Corporate and Other operations resulted in a loss, on an adjusted operating income basis, of $281 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to a loss of $239 million in the year-ago quarter. The increased loss was primarily driven by interest expense, net of investment income, reflecting a greater level of capital debt in the current quarter, and by higher expenses.

Assets under management amounted to $901 billion at December 31, 2011, compared to $784 billion a year earlier.

Net income of the Financial Services Businesses attributable to Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) amounted to $606 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $213 million in the year-ago quarter.

Current quarter net income includes $568 million of pre-tax net realized investment losses and related charges and adjustments. Net realized investment losses for the current quarter include net losses of $367 million from products that contain embedded derivatives and associated derivative portfolios that are part of a hedging program related to the risks of these products as well as mark-to-market of derivatives under a capital hedge program. Net realized investment losses also include losses from impairments and sales of credit-impaired investments amounting to $142 million, and net changes in value relating to foreign currency exchange rates and changes in market value of derivatives primarily related to the Company’s investment duration management programs amounting to $95 million. These losses were partially offset by net gains from general portfolio activities.

At December 31, 2011, gross unrealized losses on general account fixed maturity investments of the Financial Services Businesses amounted to $4.256 billion, including $2.999 billion on high and highest quality securities based on NAIC or equivalent ratings. Gross unrealized losses include $906 million related to asset-backed securities collateralized by sub-prime mortgages. Gross unrealized losses on general account fixed maturity investments of the Financial Services Businesses at December 31, 2011 include $2.642 billion of declines in value of 20% or more of amortized cost. Gross unrealized losses on general account fixed maturity investments of the Financial Services Businesses amounted to $3.100 billion at December 31, 2010. Net unrealized gains on general account fixed maturity investments of the Financial Services Businesses amounted to $10.493 billion at December 31, 2011, compared to $5.726 billion at December 31, 2010.

Net income for the current quarter also reflects pre-tax increases of $53 million in recorded asset values and $47 million in recorded liabilities representing changes in value which are expected to ultimately accrue to contractholders. These changes primarily represent interest rate related mark-to-market adjustments. Net income for the current quarter also includes $39 million of pre-tax income from divested businesses, which reflects a gain of $49 million from the sale of the Company’s real estate brokerage franchise and relocation services business in December 2011.

Net income of the Financial Services Businesses for the year-ago quarter included $906 million of pre-tax net realized investment losses and related charges and adjustments, decreases of $218 million in recorded assets and $200 million in recorded liabilities for which changes in value are expected to ultimately accrue to contractholders, and pre-tax losses of $8 million from divested businesses, in each case before income taxes.

Closed Block Business

Prudential’s Class B Stock, which is not traded on any exchange, reflects the performance of its Closed Block Business.

The Closed Block Business includes our in-force participating life insurance and annuity policies, and assets that are being used for the payment of benefits and policyholder dividends on these policies, as well as other assets and equity that support these policies. We have ceased offering these participating policies.

The Closed Block Business reported income from continuing operations before income taxes of $119 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to a loss from continuing operations before income taxes of $52 million for the year-ago quarter.

The Closed Block Business reported net income attributable to Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) of $80 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 and a net loss of $36 million for the year-ago quarter.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, the Closed Block Business reported income from continuing operations before income taxes of $197 million, compared to $725 million for 2010. The Closed Block Business reported net income attributable to Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) of $135 million for 2011, compared to $481 million for 2010.

Consolidated Results

There is no legal separation of the Financial Services Businesses and the Closed Block Business, and holders of the Common Stock and the Class B Stock are both common stockholders of Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU)

On a consolidated basis, which includes the results of both the Financial Services Businesses and the Closed Block Business, Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) reported net income attributable to Prudential Financial, Inc.

Forward-Looking Statements and Non-GAAP Measures

Certain of the statements included in this release constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U. S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “expects,” “believes,” “anticipates,” “includes,” “plans,” “assumes,” “estimates,” “projects,” “intends,” “should,” “will,” “shall,” or variations of such words are generally part of forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are made based on management’s current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects upon Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) and its subsidiaries. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) and its subsidiaries will be those anticipated by management. These forward-looking statements are not a guarantee of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties, and there are certain important factors that could cause actual results to differ, possibly materially, from expectations or estimates reflected in such forward-looking statements, including, among others: (1) general economic, market and political conditions, including the performance and fluctuations of fixed income, equity, real estate and other financial markets; (2) the availability and cost of additional debt or equity capital or external financing for our operations; (3) interest rate fluctuations or prolonged periods of low interest rates; (4) the degree to which we choose not to hedge risks, or the potential ineffectiveness or insufficiency of hedging or risk management strategies we do implement, with regard to variable annuity or other product guarantees; (5) any inability to access our credit facilities; (6) reestimates of our reserves for future policy benefits and claims; (7) differences between actual experience regarding mortality, morbidity, persistency, surrender experience, interest rates or market returns and the assumptions we use in pricing our products, establishing liabilities and reserves or for other purposes; (8) changes in our assumptions related to deferred policy acquisition costs, value of business acquired or goodwill; (9) changes in assumptions for retirement expense; (10) changes in our financial strength or credit ratings; (11) statutory reserve requirements associated with term and universal life insurance policies under Regulation XXX and Guideline AXXX; (12) investment losses, defaults and counterparty non-performance; (13) competition in our product lines and for personnel; (14) difficulties in marketing and distributing products through current or future distribution channels; (15) changes in tax law; (16) economic, political, currency and other risks relating to our international operations; (17) fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and foreign securities markets; (18) regulatory or legislative changes, including the recently enacted Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act; (19) inability to protect our intellectual property rights or claims of infringement of the intellectual property rights of others; (20) adverse determinations in litigation or regulatory matters and our exposure to contingent liabilities, including in connection with our divestiture or winding down of businesses; (21) domestic or international military actions, natural or man-made disasters including terrorist activities or pandemic disease, or other events resulting in catastrophic loss of life; (22) ineffectiveness of risk management policies and procedures in identifying, monitoring and managing risks; (23) effects of acquisitions, divestitures and restructurings, including possible difficulties in integrating and realizing the projected results of acquisitions, including risks associated with the acquisition of certain insurance operations in Japan; (24) interruption in telecommunication, information technology or other operational systems or failure to maintain the security, confidentiality or privacy of sensitive data on such systems; (25) changes in statutory or U.S. GAAP accounting principles, practices or policies; (26) Prudential Financial, Inc.’s primary reliance, as a holding company, on dividends or distributions from its subsidiaries to meet debt payment obligations and the ability of the subsidiaries to pay such dividends or distributions in light of our ratings objectives and/or applicable regulatory restrictions; and (27) risks due to the lack of legal separation between our Financial Services Businesses and our Closed Block Business. Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) does not intend, and is under no obligation, to update any particular forward-looking statement included in this document.

Adjusted operating income is a non-GAAP measure of performance of our Financial Services Businesses. Adjusted operating income excludes “Realized investment gains (losses), net,” as adjusted, and related charges and adjustments. A significant element of realized investment gains and losses are impairments and credit-related and interest rate-related gains and losses. Impairments and losses from sales of credit-impaired securities, the timing of which depends largely on market credit cycles, can vary considerably across periods. The timing of other sales that would result in gains or losses, such as interest rate-related gains or losses, is largely subject to our discretion and influenced by market opportunities as well as our tax and capital profile.

Realized investment gains (losses) within certain of our businesses for which such gains (losses) are a principal source of earnings, and those associated with terminating hedges of foreign currency earnings and current period yield adjustments are included in adjusted operating income. Adjusted operating income excludes realized investment gains and losses from products that contain embedded derivatives, and from associated derivative portfolios that are part of a hedging program related to the risk of those products. Adjusted operating income also excludes gains and losses from changes in value of certain assets and liabilities relating to foreign currency exchange movements that have been economically hedged or considered part of our capital funding strategies for our international subsidiaries, as well as gains and losses on certain investments that are classified as other trading account assets.

Adjusted operating income also excludes investment gains and losses on trading account assets supporting insurance liabilities and changes in experience-rated contractholder liabilities due to asset value changes, because these recorded changes in asset and liability values are expected to ultimately accrue to contractholders. Trends in the underlying profitability of our businesses can be more clearly identified without the fluctuating effects of these transactions. In addition, adjusted operating income excludes the results of divested businesses, which are not relevant to our ongoing operations. Discontinued operations, which is presented as a separate component of net income under GAAP, is also excluded from adjusted operating income.

We believe that the presentation of adjusted operating income as we measure it for management purposes enhances understanding of the results of operations of the Financial Services Businesses by highlighting the results from ongoing operations and the underlying profitability of our businesses. However, adjusted operating income is not a substitute for income determined in accordance with GAAP, and the adjustments made to derive adjusted operating income are important to an understanding of our overall results of operations. The schedules accompanying this release provide a reconciliation of adjusted operating income for the Financial Services Businesses to income from continuing operations in accordance with GAAP.

The information referred to above, as well as the risks of our businesses described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010, should be considered by readers when reviewing forward-looking statements contained in this release. Additional historical information relating to our financial performance is located on our Web site at www.investor.prudential.com.
