What are Wall Street analysts saying about Alleghany stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alleghany stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Alleghany’s strong performance across insurance and reinsurance operations will continue to fuel premium revenues. It strives to grow via acquisitions and organic initiatives as these not only diversify and strengthen its portfolio but also expand its international footprint. A solid balance sheet with healthy capital position supports shareholder-friendly moves and growth initiatives. However, exposure to cat loss induces volatility to underwriting results and thus drags the bottom-line performance. Escalating expenses weighing on margin expansion remain concern. Investment results too remain depressed owing to the still low interest rate. Also, the company did not witness any estimate revisions for its 2018 estimate in the last 60 days. Shares of the Alleghany have underperformed the industry in year's time." (1/21/2018)

Alleghany (NYSE:Y) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
