What are Wall Street analysts saying about Axis Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Axis Capital stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of AXIS Capital have outperformed the industry year to date. Also, the company saw its 2018 and 2019 estimates move north over the last 60 days. It continues to build on its Specialty Insurance, Reinsurance, Accident and Health (A&H) to pave way for long-term growth. The company remains focused on deploying resources prudently while enhancing efficiencies at the same time. Also, the insurer has been improving its portfolio mix and underwriting profitability apart from strengthening the casualty and professional lines in the insurance segment. Its inorganic growth story remains impressive with strategic buyouts. But exposure to cat loss has been denting the insurer’s underwriting results and dragging the bottom line. Also, stiff competition in the reinsurance industry and escalating expenses restrict margin expansion." (6/4/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "FFO/sh. Beat. 2Q FFO/sh. was $1.48 vs. Cantor/consensus (FactSet) $1.43/ $1.44. The variance to the estimates includes lower NOI offset by lower G&A and interest expense." (7/27/2017)
