Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. stock:

  • BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We are increasing our 2018 and 2019 EPS estimates for AJG after incorporating US tax reform into out forecasts. Last December when we incorporated tax reform across our coverage, we excluded AJG due to its very effective Clean Coal tax management strategy. Now that management has provided guidance on the effect of tax reform, we are comfortable bringing Gallagher on par with the other companies we cover benefiting from potential US tax reform. Consequently, we are increasing our target price to $63 from $60." (2/1/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Arthur J. Gallagher’s third-quarter earnings per share beat expectations on the back of strong performance by the Brokerage segment. Each division posted organic growth in the quarter. Notably, the company has witnessed positive organic growth for 20 straight quarters. It remains focused on tapping opportunities in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the U.S. Contribution from international operations is expected to increase. The inorganic story seems impressive with continued strategic buyouts. Riding on its operational strength, the company expects to deliver 15% earnings growth in 2016. A solid performance is leading to sufficient cash flows which will help it deploy capital in shareholder-friendly moves. Management remains optimistic about employee benefit business generating organic growth in the fourth quarter. However, escalating expenses and the resultant adverse impact on margins, weak commercial P&C rates pose concerns" (11/1/2016)
