The insurance sector is broadly higher following the MetLife dividend hike. Worth remembering - Met (MET) is a special case, until recently under the Fed's regulatory thumb due to its banking operations (now divested). PRU +2.8%, HIG +2.4%. Maybe most interesting is AIG +4.1% as investors ponder the capital return possibilities.
