What are Wall Street analysts saying about ProAssurance stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ProAssurance stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "ProAssurance Corporation’s shares have outperformed the industry quarter to date. It has been consistently performing well backed by growth across its three operating segments along with overall renewal pricing. The company’s core business has been witnessing a substantial improvement over the past few quarters. It has significantly achieved inorganic growth via successful acquisitions and integration of companies. Its top line has also remained consistently strong on the back of a solid premium income. However, volatility in premium retention pertaining to the company’s physician business has impacted its margins adversely too. While growing expenses also persistently burden the company’s bottom line, declining investment income has been affecting its revenues." (9/11/2018)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We also expect earnings to decline over the next couple of years due to less favorable (albeit still very strong) prior-year reserve development. On the plus side, PRA continues to operate with very low leverage, and the board has declared special dividends in each of the last four years (and five of the last six). Given the excess capital, we would not be surprised to see additional special dividends in the future. Still, we believe investors should wait for a better opportunity to get into the stock and we maintain our Neutral rating." (8/8/2018)
