RenaissanceRe, AIR Worldwide announce collaboration

Catastrophe modeling firm AIR Worldwide announced that it is collaborating with RenaissanceRe (RNR) as part of a joint effort to enhance the industry's modeling of long-tail casualty risk. AIR Worldwide is a Verisk (VRSK) business. As part of the collaboration, AIR is producing portfolio-specific casualty losses based on its innovative exposure management application, Arium. Arium's scenario-based loss assessment framework enables companies to systematically measure portfolio loss potential and exposures to simulated scenarios representing both emerging risks and forward-projected historical events. AIR and RenaissanceRe will work closely to further refine the industry's first fully probabilistic model for extreme liability events.

Irma losses could be lower than expected, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sarah DeWitt believes losses from Hurricane Irma could be at the lower end of the $20B-$60B expected range since the storm weakened faster than expected. The analyst estimates the impact to book values for the companies she covers should be a "manageable" 1%-2%. Among the property casualty insurers, the analyst views Validus (VR), Everest Re (RE) and XL Group (XL) as the most oversold. She lists those three along with RenaissanceRe (RNR), Travelers (TRV), Arch Capital (ACGL), Chubb (CB), Allstate (ALL) and Progressive (PGR) as the P&C insurers with the most exposure to U.S. hurricanes.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Palo Alto Networks (PANW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Cleveland Research with the firm saying it's channel partner checks indicate favorable revenue/billings growth in the low-20% range, versus high teens previously, and the product refresh could be a source of upside with increased hardware growth. 2.

Tesaro (TSRO) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Steven Breazzano saying he believes the stocks' valuations are now attractive on a long-term basis following their pullbacks. 4. Clovis (CLVS) was upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI and to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital. 5.

Verisk Analytics price target raised to $105 from $90 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey raised his price target on Verisk Analytics to $105 after the company's Q4 earnings beat, citing improving organic revenue growth, better operating performance disclosure, and a longer-term view of more consistent pricing and margins. Jeffrey keeps his Hold rating on Verisk, saying the near-term margin outlook is constrained by accelerating investment spending, but adds that the longer-term focus to de-emphasize acquisitions could offer possible entry points on the stock.
