UnitedHealth Group is getting its results release for the third quarter over with today.

The health insurance giant was preparing to release its earnings before the stock market opens, hold a conference call with securities analysts, and sit back and watch other life, health and annuity insurers tell Wall Street what dealing with COVID-19 and low interest rates has been like for them.

The third quarter of the year ended Sept. 30.

Most insurers do not sell stock to the public. They simply file quarterly and annual financial statements with state insurance regulators. Members of the public generally get to see those reports by visiting the offices of state insurance commissioners, use proprietary websites, or waiting for the California Department of Insurance to post the statements on their website.

Twenty-two U.S. life insurers have enough ordinary stockholders that they must file quarterly and annual reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Securities analysts then tell investors what the results seem to mean.

Ryan Krueger, an analyst with Keefe Bruyette and Woods, says in his preview of results for life and annuity issuers that, in spite of concerns about COVID-19, low interest rates and investment market volatility, life and annuity issuers’ third-quarter results should look better than the results for the second quarter.

The stock market did better in the third quarter than in the second quarter, the number of COVID-19 deaths seems to have even lower, and life insurers have been moving to cut expenses, Krueger says.

Companies that focus on selling life insurance to middle-income people could do especially well, and companies that focus on worksite sales may report soft sales, Krueger says.

He expects to see mix annuity sales results.
