What are Wall Street analysts saying about Brown & Brown stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Brown & Brown stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Brown & Brown have outperformed the industry year to date. Also, the company witnessed its 2018 and 2019 estimates move north over the last 60 days. Brown & Brown’s compelling portfolio with impressive growth is driven by organic and inorganic initiatives. Plus, a solid capital position drives the company well for long- term growth. A solid performance is boosting cash flow, which should help the company deploy capital in shareholder-friendly moves. However, increased financial leverage and an exposure to currency exchange rate fluctuations are headwinds. Also, heavy dependence on limited clients for commission revenues raises caution. Moreover, escalating expenses are likely to hurt margins." (6/4/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are updating our BRO model to reflect: (1) updating the segment estimates within our model after BRO filed its 10Q; and (2) the $50 million accelerated share repurchase program, which BRO entered into today (8/15). We also followed up with the company post earnings. As a result, we are fine tuning our numbers – and while we have made some adjustments to our quarterly estimates (for lower contingents in the Q3) our full year estimates are unchanged (due to a lower share count assumption from the ASR BRO announced today). Our consolidated earnings model is included in the back of this note." (8/15/2017)
