MetLife stock (NYSE: MET) gained 1.1% in the last week, outperforming the S&P 500 (down 0.6%). The slight improvement in the share price came after the company’s announcement to acquire Raven Capital Management. 

The insurance giant missed the consensus estimates of revenues and earnings in the recently released fourth-quarter results. It posted total GAAP revenues of $16.3 billion – down 19% y-o-y, driven by a 29% drop in the total premiums and a 15% decline in the net investment income (NII). The premiums mainly suffered in the retirement and income solutions category of the U.S. segment due to higher pension risk transfer sales in 2021. Despite lower revenues, the adjusted net income increased by 12% y-o-y to $1.3 billion due to lower policyholder benefits and claims on a year-on-year basis.
