It's too much of a stretch to say that the financial sector is healthy
again, but banks and P&C insurers have largely recovered a lot of
lost value. Conditions are not so strong in the life insurance industry,
though, where low rates and volatile markets have done a number on many
aspects of the business. Tough times tend to highlight the best
operators, though, and I believe MetLife (NYSE:MET) continues to demonstrate why it is a top-notch company that is meaningfully undervalued.
