Sterne Agee maintained its Buy rating and $78 price target on Prudential Financial (NYSE: PRU) following deal to acquire Hartford (NYSE: HIG).

Sterne Agee commented, "PRU announced the much anticipated purchase of Hartford's (HIG, $19.30, Buy) individual life business, though the company provided little detail beyond the $615m ceding commission it will pay to acquire the business through a reinsurance transaction. We expect the deal to be modestly accretive to PRU's 2013E EPS (~3-4% depending on size of cost saves)."

Prudential Financial closed at $54.82 on Thursday.
