What are Wall Street analysts saying about Progressive stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Progressive stock:
  • 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are increasing our 2019 EPS estimate to $5.50 from $5.45 to reflect the earnings beat, partially offset by lower premium growth. We are lowering our 2020 EPS estimate to $5.70 from $5.75 and we are maintaining our 2021 EPS estimate of $6.10. Our price target is unchanged at $81. The shares traded down today likely as the slowdown in premium written more than overshadowed the EPS beat." (8/15/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Progressive have outperformed the industry year to date. 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. Leadership in product, service and distribution innovation, especially in personal auto 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 induces volatility to its underwriting results while escalating expenses weighing on margin expansion remain headwinds." (5/27/2019)
