What are Wall Street analysts saying about Travelers Companies stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Travelers Companies stock:
- 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We continue to have a Market Perform rating on the shares." (5/24/2018)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Travelers have outperformed the industry, year to date. Travelers boasts a strong market position as one of the leading writers of auto and homeowners’ insurance and commercial U.S. property-casualty insurance with impressive inorganic growth story. It has been generating sufficient capital and prudently uses it to boost shareholders’ value and pursue growth initiatives. Solid retention and positive renewal rate change are the positives. However, exposure to catastrophe loss poses headwind for underwriting results. With the rising interest rate environment, the company expects $25-$30 million higher after-tax net investment income on a quarterly basis. It is set to release first quarter results on Apr 24. A Zacks Rank #2 combined with Earnings ESP of 2.00% makes us reasonably confident of an earnings beat." (4/12/2018)
