  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Progressive have outperformed the industry in a year and the company witnessed its 2018 and 2019 estimates move north in the last 60 days. The company strives to become a one-stop insurance destination catering to customers, opting for a combination of home and auto. 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 the business. It focuses on paying back its shareholders via dividends as well as share repurchases that lower the share count and boost the bottom line. However, the company’s growth could be challenged by intense competition. Exposure to catastrophe events and escalating expenses remains headwinds." (9/19/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are seeing a slowing of rate increases in the personal auto sector and we believe others will join PGR in the push for growth. As PGR pushes for growth and less rate, and as favorable frequency trends reverse, we believe PGR should see some margin volatility and see the shares fairly valued at current levels $ 2017A 2018E 2019E EPS Curr.
