UPDATE: Deutsche Bank Reiterates on Lincoln National as More Upside Remains with Tapering
In a report published Friday, Deutsche Bank analyst Yaron Kinar reiterated a Buy rating on Lincoln National (NYSE: LNC), and raised the price target from $52.00 to $56.00.
In the report, Deutsche Bank noted, “Despite a 55% YTD return, we believe there is more upside in the life insurance group, particularly among interest sensitive names. Current valuations imply a ~3% 10Y 12 months ahead, whereas the introduction of tapering by March '14 would likely mean that yields move into 3.5% territory or above, and expectations of further increases would rise. By DB estimates, if the Fed undergoes a normal hiking cycle, 10Y yields should currently be 3.65%. MET offers the most upside to our TP.”
Lincoln National closed on Thursday at $49.99.
