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 has been performing well on the back of growth across its operating segments along with overall renewal pricing. 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 also impacted its margins adversely. Exposure to catastrophe loss remains a concern. Another major risk is associated with its investment portfolio, which primarily consists of fixed income securities. A Zacks Rank #3 and an Earnings ESP of 0% leave us inconclusive of an earnings surprise as it is set to report its third-quarter results on Nov 5." (10/15/2019)
  • 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)
