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’s third-quarter 2019 operating earnings per share of 30 cents beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 150%, primarily driven by higher revenues. However, the bottom line declined 28.6% year over year. It has been performing well on the back of growth across its operating segments. Moreover, the company significantly achieved inorganic growth via successful acquisitions and integration of companies. Its shares have underperformed its industry in a year's time. However, growing expenses weighs on its bottom line. Volatility in premium retention pertaining to the company’s physician business and exposure to cat loss are other concerns. Another major risk is associated with its investment portfolio, which primarily consists of fixed income securities." (11/14/2019)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We expected 10.8 percentage points of favorable development, or $0.32/share after tax. Excluding the difference in reserve development, normalized EPS missed by only $0.05/share, mostly due to lower equity in earnings of unconsolidated subsidiaries and weaker “other” income. Normalized underwriting results were actually better-than-expected – both the current accident year loss ratio (81.7%) and the expense ratio (29.5%) were better than we projected." (4/26/2019)
