Abstract

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.
