Progressive technical comments ahead of earnings news

Ahead of earnings news, shares have been in a downtrend for several weeks. If the news is a negative surprise, a breakdown in price below $30 would signal a major long-term topping process was underway. Support levels to watch below $30 as potential downside objectives would be at $29.32 which is the 52-week low, $28.24, and $27.26. The $30 level has held on a closing price basis as support for nearly a year. If the news is a positive surprise, a move above $32.50 would break the downtrend. Next resistance levels to watch above $32.50 as potential upside objectives would be at $33.25, $34.43, and the 52-week high at $35.54.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Exxon Mobil (XOM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analysts led by Doug Leggate saying Exxon's strong relative performance discount's long-term oil at around $73/bbl and said shares appear to be fairly valued. 2. Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman with analyst David Roman saying the risk/reward looks balanced at current share levels. Roman lowered his price target for the stock to $674 from $690. 3. DeVry (DV) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Trace Urdan saying he no longer feels confident in his investment thesis following the resignation of CFO Tim Wiggins. 4. Franklin Resources (BEN) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Brennan Hawken arguing the company is the most exposed to the Department of Labor's fiduciary rule of the names he covers given its reliance on the broker sold channel coupled with weak investment performance. He cut his price target for the shares to $28 from $39. 5. Progressive (PGR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst James Naklicki saying consensus margin and earnings expectations are too optimistic.

Progressive personal auto seems to be "breaking out," says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Harry Fong says that Progressive's personal auto business "appears to be breaking out," as the company reported that the growth in the number of net premium it wrote accelerated to nearly 12% last quarter. The analyst says he's not concerned by the possibility of the company's combined ratio exceeding 96%, as such an increase would be in-line with its longstanding strategy. He keeps a $40 price target and Buy rating on the shares.

Progressive upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Keefe Bruyette
Keefe Bruyette analyst Meyer Shields upgraded Progressive to Market Perform and raised its price target to $31 from $29. The analyst believes most of the catalysts that led to increased 2016 loss ratios year-over-year have played out and rising rates and seasonality should benefit the company.
