What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hartford Financial Services Group stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hartford Financial Services Group stock: 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are not changing our EPS estimates at this time. HIG should preview its fire losses during a conference presentation next week (on 12/5). We expect the shares to not be significantly impacted by the meetings. Our sense is investors are more interested in The Hartford due to its lower valuation but are looking for a catalyst. We see the first catalyst as being either the company points to improved comp trends on its Q4 earnings call in February, or most likely when capital return becomes part of the story in H2 2019. We continue to have a Market Perform rating on the shares." (11/29/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hartford Financial’s shares have lost in a year’s time, wider than its industry's decline. Moreover, the company has witnessed its 2018 earnings estimates move upward over the past 30 days. Its solid fundamentals are likely to help its shares bounce back going forward. Strategic initiatives pave the way for long-term growth. Moreover, its investment results are impressive on the back of recent interest rate hikes. Its prudent capital management also remains a positive. The company’s performance has improved owing to a sturdy underwriting, strong investment performance and lower tax rates. However, the company is severely exposed to catastrophic loss. Moreover, softness in Personal Lines segment remains a major headwind. Escalating expenses is another concern for the company."
