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)
