Share prices of leading life insurers fell again last week, the declines mirroring a slide in most major market indexes.
So reports LifeHealthPro.com in this fourth installment of a weekly analysis of the stock performance of 10 leading publicly held life insurers. The 10 companies are the same as those featured in an August 21 LifeHealthPro story listing the top 10 life insurers based on their second quarter net income.
For the week ending October 3, every one of our top 10 companies experienced share price declines over the five days.
As was the case last week, Prudential Financial was the worst performer for the week, the company’s shares dropping by $1.84 to close on Friday at $87.04. Principal Financial’s stock also fell more than a dollar, its share dipping by $1.13 to end the week at $53.
