Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about MGIC Investment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "MGIC Investment remains well-poised to deliver improved earnings, banking on declining delinquency, lower claims payments and an improving housing market. MGIC Investment expects to write about $50 billion new business in 2018 and also estimates insurance in force to improve. This apart, the company remains focused on enhancing its shareholders’ value. Also, positive credit trends, increasing persistency as well as low expense ratio are tailwinds. The company saw its 2018 and 2019 estimates move north over the last 60 days. However, a competitive environment and pressure to maintain capital at the required level will reduce the MGIC Investment’s capital flexibility. Shares of MGIC Investment have underperformed the industry year to date." (6/19/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We were modeling an April cure ratio of 112.4%. The favorable cure ratio probably reflects delinquent loans curing in the geographical areas that the Agency declared Areas as a result of hurricanes Maria, which occurred in August ­ September 2017. The cure ratio should be a precursor to favorable prior­period development, although the initial reserve per delinquency in the hurricane­impacted areas was probably lower than would otherwise be the case."
