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 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 its 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. Shares of Progressive have outperformed the industry year to date. However, the company’s growth could be challenged by an intense competition. Exposure to catastrophe events and escalating expenses remain headwinds. Though the company witnessed estimates for 2018 move down 0.2%, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2019 moved north 2.3%." (1/2/2019)
  • 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.
