What are analysts saying about Arch Capital Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Arch Capital Group stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Arch Capital has a strong product portfolio and has been maintaining an exemplary track record of premium growth. This apart, the company has been making efforts to diversify its Mortgage Insurance business through strategic acquisitions. Moreover, the insurer remains focused in boosting shareholders’ value. However, its exposure to catastrophe losses poses an inherent risk to the P&C business, inducing volatility in underwriting results. Also, a still low interest rate environment and intense competition concerns. Moreover, shares of Arch Capital have underperformed the industry in the last three months. Also, the company has seen its 2017 and 2018 estimates moving south over the last 60 days." (10/12/2017)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Company analysts commented, "We await more details from the company to determine whether this will potentially lead to additional reserve charges across the industry." (6/7/2017)
  • 3. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We are incorporating a $4 embedded value into our ACGL valuation stemming from the future earn-out of already written mortgage insurance business. In addition, we expect the incorporation of the UGC book to lower the overall earnings volatility of Arch as a majority of earnings over the next 12-24 months will come from already written mortgage insurance. While Arch was never known for volatility, the reduced PMLs and mortgage insurance earn-out should stabilize it even further, justifying an increased valuation." (2/28/2017)
