What are Wall Street analysts saying about Marsh & McLennan Companies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Marsh & McLennan Companies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Marsh & McLennan’s first-quarter 2019 adjusted earnings per share of $1.52 beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 4.8% and improved 10.1% year over year. Shares of the company have outperformed its industry in a year's time. It is well-poised to grow on the back of significant investments and acquisitions made within its different operating units. These deals have enabled the company to enter new geographies, expand within the existing ones, foray into new businesses and also develop new segments. Its robust capital position, which is evident from its solid balance sheet and financial flexibility also impresses. However, it has been suffering a low investment income phase for quite some time. Its operating expenses, having escalated over the last couple of years due to higher compensation and benefits, weigh on its margins. The company has also been witnessing a rise in its long-term leverage ratio, which raises financial risk." (4/30/2019)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We believe the insurance brokers should show continued strong organic growth in Q3 and we believe those with the strongest growth and prospects for earnings estimates to be revised up are positioned to outperform. Top on the list to us is AJG as it is best positioned to beat organic growth expectations and the stock should positively respond. We have been getting the most questions on Willis of late – and our view is that it is hard to say with certainty that the Q2 organic slowdown is only a one quarter issue and we believe a big focus will be placed on the Q3 growth the company sees."
