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 shares have lost significantly when compared to its industry’s growth in the past year. Also, the company has witnessed its 2018 and 2019 earnings move downward over the past 90 days. Volatility in premium retention in 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. However, its core business has been witnessing 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." (7/15/2018)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We anticipate some weakness in the shares today. The company is one of the more conservative insurers in the sector and has a long track record of building shareholder value (book value plus cumulative dividends), averaging 13% growth per year for the last 25 years. However, the stock is currently trading over 1.7x book versus the company’s long-term average of 1.4x. We also expect earnings to decline modestly over the next couple of years, largely the result of less favorable (albeit still very strong) prior year reserve development. As such, we believe investors should wait for a better opportunity to get into the stock and maintain our Neutral rating." (2/22/2018)
