Is the Aviva share price undervalued?

Despite the insurer’s share price losing more than 20% of its value over the last five years, the stock continues to pay decent dividends and analysts remain positive about its prospects over the medium-term.

Aviva has seen its share price slowly decline over the last five years, with the stock losing more than 20% of its value in that time.

However, the British insurer remains a safe stock for investors, with it providing reliable and progressive dividends, yielding 8% returns for shareholders in 2018 and forecast to deliver 7.4% this year.

But is the Aviva share price undervalued? Analysts certainly think so.
