Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Marsh & McLennan Companies stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Marsh & McLennan is well poised for growth 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 develop new segments. It is expected to benefit from its strong capital management and expense control initiatives. Although the shares have underperformed the industry in a year’s time, its strong fundamentals are expected to drive the shares higher going forward. It has also seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2018 earnings being revised upward in the last 60 days. Nevertheless, exposure to currency volatility due to high international presence raises concern. Its effective capital management via share buybacks and dividend payment is impressive." (4/4/2018)

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.
