What are analysts saying about Assured Guaranty stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Assured Guaranty stock:
BTIG Research analysts commented, "Buyback Potential Once Puerto Rico More Stable During each of the past few years, Standard & Poor’s has released a mid- year assessment of Assured Guaranty (AGO) that disclosed the outputs from the credit rating agency’s capital adequacy model, including S&P’s assessment of the potential impact of actual and potential defaults by Puerto Rico on the company given its insured exposure to the Commonwealth’s debt." (8/1/2016)
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Assured Guaranty is exposed to sustained low interest rate in the U.S; continued low volume of issuance in the U.S. public finance market; and increased competition weighing on its performances. Nevertheless, the company, being a proven leader in bond insurance, is poised for long-term growth on the back of increased new business production, acquisition of Radian Asset Assurance and strong capital management. The company is also undertaking loss mitigation and other loss recovery strategies which would drive bottom-line growth going ahead. Assured Guaranty is expected to report its first quarter results on first week of May. The Zacks Consensus estimate is currently pegged at $0.62 per share, down 30.3% year over year. Also, our proven model cannot say conclusively if it will miss or beat expectation because of Zacks Rank #4, which decreases the predictive power of a beat combined with Earnings ESP of 0.0% makes prediction difficult."
