Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Amerisafe stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Amerisafe's revenue growth catching up along with a rebound in net investment income should aid its top-line growth. Its strong blance sheet is another positive. The company's consistently increasing return on equity highlights its efficiency in using shareholder’s funds. Amerisafe’s efficient claims management, good underwriting results, favorable loss and frequency trends, prudent reserve analytics, and improved operating leverage also bode well. Increasing revenues is another positive. However, a rise in expenses and product concentration remains a headwind. Shares of the company have declined in a year's time but have fared better than the industry." (12/31/2018)

Key Points: Reported Results: AMERISAFE reported 1Q18 operating EPS of $0.86 versus our estimate of $0.81 and consensus of $0.77.
