Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
It is going to be a busy next week in the markets. I look forward to that but first a couple of bits of Sunday musing. Five weeks ago here I was thinking about Prudential (PRU) ‘which might have been founded in London in May 1848, but today (post the spin-off of M&G (MNG)) is all about its US and Asian insurance and related business focus’. Well, as you might have read in the last week, the company’s US division Jackson Financial has formally split and the company is an independent organisation listed on the New York Stock Exchange and technically ‘Prudential shareholders are entitled to receive one share of Jackson’s Class A common stock for every 40 Prudential shares they hold’.
