What are Wall Street analysts saying about Progressive stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Progressive stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Progressive’s first-quarter 2019 earnings per share beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate and improved year over year. Higher premiums, investment income, and growth in fees and other revenues as well as service revenues aided the top line. Shares of Progressive have outperformed the industry year to date. Progressive’s focus to become a one-stop insurance destination catering to customers opting for a combination of home and auto insurance bodes well for long-term growth. Policies in force and retention ratio will continue to remain healthy. The company’s Snapshot, Robinson and Home Quote Explorer programs should continue to drive its business. It focuses on paying back its shareholders via dividends as well as share repurchases. However, the company’s growth could be challenged by intense competition. Exposure to catastrophe events and escalating expenses remain headwinds." (4/22/2019)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are lowering our 2019 EPS estimate to $5.05 from $5.12 to reflect the earnings miss and lower net investment income. We are maintaining 2020 EPS estimate of $5.30. We are also maintaining our $73 price target. In our view, PGR shares are trading down to reflect weaker underlying results." (3/13/2019)
