What are analysts saying about MGIC Investment Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about MGIC Investment Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "MGIC Investment’s third-quarter bottom line beat estimates on lower losses incurred. Insurance in force improved while claims declined year over year. Also, expense ratio remained low.  Shares of MGIC Investment have outperformed the industry, since it posted better than third quarter earnings. The company remains well poised to deliver improved earnings banking on declining delinquency, lower claims payments and improving housing market. The company expects to write about the same amount of new business as 2016, and also estimates insurance in force to improve in 2017. This apart, the company remains focused in enhancing shareholders’ value. Also, positive credit trends, low expense ratio are tailwinds. However, a competitive environment and pressure to maintain capital at required level will reduce the company’s capital flexibility." (10/23/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We are increasing our 2017-18 EPS estimates to reflect our updated share repurchase outlook, and are raising our target price to $10 (from $8). We see three paths to be able to fund the buyback: 1. Cash on hand: As of 9/30, MTG had $330 million of hold co cash, of which $145 million is being held for the 2017 debt maturity and $40 million for completing the buyback as part of the 3Q debt issuance/convert repurchase. This leaves MTG with about $145 million of available cash. With no near-term debt maturities (2023 is next), and the dividend from the MI subsidiary covering interest, MTG has limited needs to hold substantial hold co cash." (11/28/2016)
