Forecasting the Operating Income of MetLife
The research is directed toward the prediction of operating income within the MetLife Insurance Company. The operating income of the firm is the amount of profit realized from a firm's own operation, as opposed to net income. The econometric model is based on 10 years of quarterly data (2004-2014). The explanatory variables used in this modeling effort are (1) stock price, (2) long-Term borrowing, (3) capital surplus, (4) free cash flow, (5), S&P average, (6) GDP, and (7) CPI.
