Morningstar | Aviva's 2018 Results Decent, All Things Considered

Aviva reported a 2% rise in operating profit to GBP 3.1 billion for 2018, slightly below our expectations. Operating earnings per share came in at GBX 58.4 with a GBX 30.0 total 2018 dividend, giving Aviva's stock a roughly 7% yield. At the current market valuation, Aviva trades at a very rough 1.0 times current net asset value. We will hold our fair value estimate at GBP 5.75 per share until we have full-year financial statements and roll our financial model. However, we are lowering our stewardship rating to standard until Aviva outlines its business strategy under its new leadership. All t...

Morningstar | Andale Aviva for Asset Management and Canadian General Insurance

Aviva is a midmarket insurer that has had its fair share of problems with leverage, unfocused capital allocation, and substandard controls. A largely undifferentiated composite insurer, it has missed opportunities to differentiate itself by expanding asset management. But this seems to be a focus of management, and with the change of guard, we expect this to continue. We think the second main focus is its digital strategy, which centres on MyAviva, and the business is having good success here. This digital strategy is reducing paperwork and administration and also improving the control environ...

Andale Aviva for Asset Management and Canadian General Insurance

Aviva has announced that CEO Mark Wilson will step down as CEO with immediate effect and will leave the company on April 9, 2019. We maintain our fair value estimate of GBX 575, along with our no moat and stable moat trend ratings. The announcement does come as a surprise--particularly, in our view, the short transition period to find a suitable replacement. Still, we think there have been small tell-tale signs that Wilson has been looking elsewhere, namely his appointment to the board of BlackR...

Analyse court terme - AVIVA (ex. CGNU) : La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 437,30 p prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 395,17 p, puis 370,24 p. Le franchissement de 498,50 p remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Matthieu DRIOL

Short term view - AVIVA (ex. CGNU) : Falling prices.

The background trend is clearly bearish. Prices are falling again, but the movement has become hesitant. The next support is at 395.17 p. The background trend would be questioned should prices rise above 498.50 p.

Matthieu DRIOL

Analyse court terme - AVIVA (ex. CGNU) : Les prix baissent.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Les prix baissent à nouveau, mais le mouvement est devenu hésitant. Le prochain support est à 395,17 p. La tendance de fond serait remise en cause en cas de franchissement de 498,50 p.

Matthieu DRIOL

Analyse moyen terme - AVIVA (ex. CGNU) : La tendance est baissière.

La tendance est baissière. Le mouvement se poursuit. Le prochain objectif est à 420,84 p, puis 370,81 p. Le franchissement de 544,05 p remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Valérie GASTALDY

Short term view - AVIVA (ex. CGNU) : The trend is bullish.

The trend is bullish. Prices are making further progress. The targets are at 494.40 p and then 512.50 p. The break of 458.50 p would endanger the trend.
