14:05 EDTMET, PRU, AIG, CBMetLife, other insurers climb after dividend increase
MetLife (MET) and several other large insurance companies are climbing after MetLife announced that it would increase its dividend for the first time since 2007. WHAT'S NEW: The insurer announced that its second quarter dividend would be 27.5c per share, up from its first quarter dividend of 18.5c per share. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The dividend increase is the company's first since 2007 and comes after the insurer shed its status as a bank holding company. Last year the Federal Reserve, which oversees bank holding companies, vetoed a request by MetLife to increase its annual dividend to $1.10 per year. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors Wells Fargo analyst John Hall noted that the company did not announce that it would repurchase any of its shares. If the company's board had approved share repurchases, that information probably would have been announced today, the analyst wrote. Hall maintained an Outperform rating on the shares. TODAY'S PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, MetLife jumped $2.30, or 6.45%, to $38.10, Prudential (PRU) advanced 3.7% to $58.20, AIG (AIG) climbed 4.7% to $40.45, and Chubb (CB) added 1.5% to $89.

07:02 EDTAIGAIG announces settlement with BofA on residential mortgage related disputes
American International Group (AIG) announced that it has reached a global resolution of its residential mortgage related disputes with Bank of America (BAC). The resolution includes its claims pending in New York and California federal courts related to the creation, offering, and sale of RMBS from which AIG and its subsidiaries suffered losses either directly on their own account or in connection with their participation in AIG’s securities lending program. The resolution also covers AIG’s objections to the $8.5 billion settlement of Countrywide’s mortgage repurchase obligations to various investors, as well as disputes concerning the issuance of mortgage guaranty insurance by AIG’s United Guaranty subsidiaries to Bank of America and Countrywide. Under the terms of the settlement, AIG will receive $650M in cash plus its pro rata share of whatever amount is ultimately paid out to investors in connection with the Countrywide repurchase settlement. In addition, the parties have agreed, subject to the approval of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and certain other mortgage holders, to resolve the outstanding mortgage guaranty claims disputes in accordance with agreed-to claims processes and payment formulae.
