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. It continues to expect compound book value per share growth of 7-10% over a long term. But, exposure to cat loss induces volatility in underwriting results, while rising expenses weighs on margin expansion. Also, the company has not witnessed any revisions for its 2018 and 2019 estimates. Shares of Alleghany have underperformed the industry year to date. It is set to release its first quarter results on May 3. A Zacks Rank #3 and an Earnings ESP of 0.00% make prediction difficult." (4/30/2018)
