  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Marsh & McLennan’s shares have underperformed its industry year to date. Its exposure to currency volatility due to wide international presence raises a concern. Also, the high costs and low investment income of the company remains a headwind. 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 geographical regions, expand within the existing ones, foray into new businesses and also develop new segments." (7/25/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We maintain our Neutral rating. Key Points: Reported Results: AMERISAFE reported 3Q17 operating EPS of $0.87 versus our estimate of $0.79 and consensus of $0.78. The beat was largely due to stronger-than-expected underwriting results. Operating ROE was 13.8%. Underwriting Ratios: The combined ratio was an excellent 81.4%, 2.5 points better than we expected. Both the loss ratio and expense ratio outperformed our expectations. Loss reserves developed favorably by 12 percentage points, or $0.35 per share after tax ($0.04 per share higher than we expected)." (10/26/2017)
