Genworth Financial, Inc.: Long-Term Upside, Near-Term Lull

Genworth's managers have their plan to return the company to growth and prosperity. The plan prioritizes reducing debt, standing up new LTC insurance businesses, stabilizing legacy LTC businesses, maximizing Enact's value, and returning capital to shareholders. The plan is expected to create value for Genworth shareholders in the intermediate to long term. There is, however, very little near-term upside for the stock. Therefore, Genworth receives a Neutral rating with a $4.25/share price target.

Genworth Financial: Enact's IPO As A Catalyst

GNW's mortgage insurance segment has grown significantly, and the positive housing outlook provides a bullish scenario for Enact's growth prospects. The management waits for better entry timing for the planned IPO until forbearance plan expirations in September and October clear up the operating environment. Enact's current Net Assets amount to $4.09 billion implying a current rock-bottom valuation of $814 million for its 19.9% stake. The IPO of Enact remains the catalyst for GNW's improving liquidity position that will unlock shareholders' value and drive its share price upwards.

Genworth Financial, Inc.: Another Bite At The IPO Apple

Genworth has refiled its planned IPO of Enact Holdings, Inc. with the SEC after shelving it earlier this year. The proceeds from the IPO, private placement of additional shares, and a fourth quarter dividend from Enact will put Genworth in a strong financial position heading into 2022. Executing the IPO and private placement will also likely result in a multiple notch rating increase of Genworth's credit. These moves should ultimately move Genworth's stock higher.
