NEW YORK, March 6 Sun Mar 6, 2011 12:42pm EST

NEW YORK, March 6 (Reuters) - MetLife Inc (MET.N) is a well-run life insurer with a reasonable stock price that appears placed for solid returns, according to an article in the March 7 edition of Barron's.

A stock offering that hurt the company's shares last week could provide a good entry point for investors, according to the article. Bulls say the stock could rise from its current level of about $45 to the high 50s, according to the article. (Reporting by Lewis Krauskopf; Editing by Bernard Orr)
