Janney surprised by severity of negative reaction after Progressive report
Janney Capital analyst Robert Glasspiegel recognizes that investors have concerns about the personal auto space, but he was still surprised by the severity of the negative reaction in Progressive shares yesterday as he views the December results favorably. The analyst, who said he remains confident that Progressive will continue to deliver superior growth and profitability, keeps a Buy rating on the stock, which fell 3% yesterday to close at $55.33.

Progressive current worries likely overblown, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Adam Klauber attributes the recent weakness in shares of Progressive to cyclical concerns, the California Commissioner's comments on taxes, and also a "blip" in the loss ratio. However, recent data suggest rate increases remain high, and the potential for California to reduce rates materially is small, Klauber tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees limited downside risk in the shares and believes the current worries are likely overblown. Klauber points out that a multiple of 18 times his 2018 operating earnings estimate suggests a stock price of $71, which is nearly 30% above the current price. He keeps an Outperform rating on Progressive.

Progressive price target raised to $70 from $65 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Harry Fong raised his price target on Progressive to $70 after the company's February earnings, noting continued increase in the personal auto policies count and a strong growth in its direct channel of over 14%. Fong adds that the company's auto insurance growth rate is "very impressive" and that the company's underwriting performance is also "excellent". The analyst keeps his Buy rating on Progressive.

Progressive shares could top $100 in next 12 months, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Adam Klauber says "rising secular tailwinds" should push Progressive's earnings "materially higher" than expectations. The impact of accelerating bundling should result in the company's earnings per share more than doubling from $2.50 in 2017 to the $5.50 to $6.00 range in 2019, Klauber tells investors in a research note. He notes that the consensus earnings estimate for 2019 is only at $3.97. The benefits of bundling expanding, like higher premium levels and growing invested assets, are just beginning to manifest and do not appear to be reflected in the stock price, the analyst contends. He thinks Progressive shares could reach $100-plus in the next 12 months. The stock closed yesterday at $61.72.
