What are Wall Street analysts saying about Everest Re Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Everest Re Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Everest Re has substantially benefited from its global presence, product diversification, capital adequacy, financial flexibility and traditional risk management capabilities. Strategic endeavors to ramp up growth pave way for long-term improvement. It is divesting underperforming business and strengthening reserves. Banking on favorable operational performance, the company enjoys disciplined capital management strategy. A competitive reinsurance market and exposure to catastrophe events infusing underwriting volatility remain headwinds. Shares of Everest Re have underperformed the industry in a year’s time. It is set to release first quarter results on Apr 25. A Zacks Rank #3 increases the predictive power of an earnings beat but combined with Earnings ESP of 0.00% makes prediction difficult." (4/11/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We do not expect much movement in the shares to the beat given the strong performance of the stock this year.  Significant premium growth in insurance and reinsurance. Gross premiums rose 17.5%, higher than our 4.2% estimate, but lower than 18.3% in Q1 (14% ex a $60 million true-up). Reinsurance was +13.7%, higher than our 9.1% estimate, but lower than 19.4% in Q1 (or 13% ex the true-up) driven by crop shifting to the reinsurance side, gaining share on property pro-rata covers, and financial lines. In reinsurance, Everest saw strong growth in the U.S. and Bermuda, while International declined. The level of reinsurance growth continues to stand out given the price declines. Insurance was +40.6% ex crop, well in excess of our 22.0% growth estimate, and +21% in Q1, as RE continues to build out its newer initiatives.  Combined ratio saw higher cats than we had modeled and a weaker underlying margin. The combined ratio was 90.5%, higher than our 87.5% estimate due to a higher cat load and weaker underlying margin. Cat losses came in at $53.5 million, higher than our $30.0 million estimate. RE saw virtually no net prior year reserve development (as a modest level of releases in reinsurance was offset by strengthening in insurance). We had modeled $2.0 million of favorable reserve development." (7/24/2017)
