Progressive downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst James Naklicki downgraded Progressive (PGR) to Sell saying consensus margin and earnings expectations are too optimistic. The company's margins should "deteriorate materially" as it books new business at a combined ratio of around 129%. The analyst cut his 2016 earnings per share estimate to $1.65, which he notes is well below consensus, and dropped his price target for the shares to $31 from $36. Naklicki recommends a pair trade of long Allstate (ALL), short Progressive.
