What are Wall Street analysts saying about Selective Insurance Group stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Selective Insurance Group stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Selective Insurance have outperformed the industry in a year's time. The company is poised for top-line growth riding on high retention ratio, pure renewal price increases and new business growth. Backed by a rising interest rate environment, the company projects after-tax net investment income of $175 million for 2019. Geographic expansion plays a vital role when it comes to growth and diversification. The company also remains committed to adding shareholder value via effective capital deployment. However, exposure to cat loss poses an inherent risk to the P&C business, rendering volatility to the company’s earnings. Rising expenses remain a concern as it might restrict the operating margin expansion." (2/14/2019) 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We maintain our Neutral rating. Key Points: Operating Results: Selective reported 1Q18 operating EPS of $0.46 versus our estimate of $0.42 and consensus of $0.48. The beat to our estimate reflects better-than-expected investment income, lower corporate expenses, and a lower effective tax rate. Operating EPS excludes $0.14 per share of realized and unrealized capital losses. Premium Production: Net written premium growth of 4.3% modestly missed our 4.8% growth projection, almost entirely due to a decline in the Excess & Surplus Lines segment premium. Renewal pricing in the Standard Commercial segment increased 3.2% and retention improved slightly to 85%. Standard Commercial new business increased 9% versus 1Q17. Year-over- year new business increased 4% in Standard Personal while the Excess & Surplus Lines segment saw new business decline by 23% due to difficult market conditions. Underwriting Income: Underwriting results were in-line." (5/3/2018) Has Selective Insurance Group been receiving favorable news coverage?
