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.

    Benmosche said a few months ago that he would like to see a dividend in the third quarter...which could be this summer. $.10 per share quarterly sounds good to me.

    AIG and a 50ยข per quarter divvy would be great.

    I'd rather see them repurchase stock unless the stock rises to $50

    Surely anything they can do to keep the stock unattractive prior to a share buyback makes sense.

     

    Dont Dividends conflict with share buybacks?
