Top Insurance Stocks For 2018

General Electric Co.’s (GE) finance unit, which is already planning to spend $15 billion over the next six years to bolster its legacy insurance portfolio, may have to add to that sum in future years, analysts said.

Long-term care obligations still weigh on the Boston-based industrial conglomerate’s balance sheet, even though GE largely exited its insurance business more than a decade ago, under former CEO Jeff Immelt. The potential costs come as current CEO John Flannery plans to sell $20 billion of assets sales and as reports of a spinoff of the transportation unit give investors a reason to see upside potential in the stock.

GE is scheduled to report first-quarter financial results on April 20. Shareholders, however, will see the first installment of GE Capital’s $15 billion “contribution” to shore up GE North American Life and Health insurance portfolio’s statutory reserves during the first quarter.

Top Insurance Stocks For 2018: Home Depot, Inc. (HD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levy]

    The company announced a succession plan for current CEO Robert Niblock, who will remain CEO until the board finds a suitable replacement. After years of underperforming its potential, as indicated by the rampant success of The Home Depot (NYSE:HD), Lowe’s under a new CEO will have a big task at hand to ramp up sales and profit margin.
