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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hartford Financial's shares have outperformed its industry year to date.  Its strategic initiatives pave the way for long-term growth. Moreover, its investment results are impressive. 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. The acqusition of Navigators will expand its business profile and will lead to long term growth. Its first-quarter 2019 adjusted operating earnings of $1.39 per share beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 12% as well as improved 9.4% year over year, backed by stronger core earnings in Group Benefits and lower Corporate core losses. However, the company is exposed to catastrophic loss, weighing down its margins. Moreover, softness in Personal Lines segment for the past few years remains a major headwind. Escalating expenses is another concern for the company." (5/20/2019)
  • 2. 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)
