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. 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." (10/8/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Marsh and McLennan 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. The company will see strong growth runway in the middle and small commercial areas. It has been efficiently deploying capital in order to enhance shareholder’s value as well. However, high costs and low investment income of the company remains a headwind. The stock has underperformed its industry, year to date." (10/8/2018)
