  • JPMorgan upgraded the stock
  • The investment bank also raised the MNG price target to 220p

The firm raised the stock to Neutral from Underweight, assigning a new price target of 220p, up from 195p per share.

M&G shares are currently up over 1% from Friday's close. The stock hit a high of more than 207p earlier in the session but is trading at 205.7p at the time of writing. This year, M&G is up over 8%.
