Prudential's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Prudential is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $85.00 short put and a strike $80.00 long put offers a potential 23.15% return on risk over the next 38 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $85.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.94 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.06 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $80.00 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for Prudential is bullish and the probability of a rise in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Prudential is bullish.
The RSI indicator is at 78.99 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Barrons.com – Prudential Financial raised its quarterly dividend payment, reassuring Wall Street that it is in good shape. Early Monday, Prudential (PRU) announced a 33% boost to its quarterly dividend, raising the cash payment to shareholders from 40 cents a share to 53 cents a share. However, earlier this year, government officials designated the insurance giant a systemically important financial institution (SIFI), which places it under Federal Reserve supervision. But as Raymond James analyst Steven Schwartz says, “What Prudential is saying is they generate lots of excess capital and they feel confident that whatever rules come out of the Federal Reserve next year will be reasonable.” Though shares were little changed in afternoon trading, at $86.26, the stock is a whisker from its 52-week high of $87.85.
