Most investors just check the MetLife stock price, and MetLife historical stock prices before investing. While share price is an important factor, one should also look at financials and valuation metrics like the MetLife PE ratio chart. Below is a brief explanation of common balance sheet terms:

  • Assets: Anything that the MetLife company owns and is a part of its books. Assets can be of three types: fixed, current and other assets which includes intangibles, advances. Internet companies typically don't have a lot of assets as there is not much investment in say machinery, equipment etc. MetLife had total assets of $719.89B.
  • Liabilities: The total liabilities of MetLife for the year 2017 total to $661.02B. Liabilities for a company like MetLife include bank loans, services which have been availed for which a settlement in the form of cash/ asset transfer needs to be done in future etc. A firm takes on such obligations to grow its business which in turn will generate future economic benefits for its business.
