Curr." (8/15/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Progressive’s first-quarter 2018 earnings outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate and also improved significantly from the prior-year quarter on higher premiums. Shares of Progressive have outperformed the industry year to date. 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." (4/20/2018)
