Essent Group price target lowered to $40 from $45 at MKM Partners

MKM Partners analyst Harry Fong lowered his price target on Essent Group to $40 and kept his Neutral rating, saying that while the better than expected Q2 results were driven by a lower loss ratio as well as a 13% increase in new insurance written, the latter will slow with a more moderate rate of market growth. Fong believes that Essent's share of the new business will depend on its willingness to "compete at the margin", adding that its current valuation of 1.8-times trailing book value is "still a little too rich".

Essent Group price target lowered to $48 from $59 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mark Dwelle lowered his price target on Essent Group (ESNT) to $48, saying the competitive pressure on prices from the announcement by MGIC Investments (MTG) is a negative that will weigh on growth and margin expansion. Despite those headwinds however, the analyst notes Essent's clean balance sheet, low loan loss ratio, and operating leverage opportunities in keeping his Outperform rating on the stock, adding that the shares are attractive at the "current depressed valuation".

Barclays sees 'unique' buying opportunity after MGIC rate cut
The overreaction to MGIC Investment's (MTG) reduced borrower-paid premium rates presents a "unique buying opportunity," Barclays analyst Mark DeVries tells investors in a research note. The analyst fully expects that the rest of the industry will likely follow suit, but his updated models suggest "only a modest" earnings reduction on lower premium rate forecasts. He believes the stock's risk/rewards are "compelling once again." The analyst lowered his price target for Essent Group (ESNT) to $51 from $57, for MGIC to $16 from $18 and for Radian Group (RDN) to $28 from $31. He keeps Overweight ratings on all three names.

Essent Group downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Sean Dargan downgraded Essent Group (ESNT) to Market Perform and lowered his price target for the shares to $38 from $58. The analyst also downgraded MGIC Investment (MTG) to Market Perform and lowered his rating on the Mortgage Insurers space to Market Weight from Overweight. He keeps a Market Perform rating on Radian Group (RDN). Despite tailwinds from mortgage credit, companies in the sector seem "poised to compete away any benefit from tax reform, at the expense of shareholders," Dargan tells investors in a research note. The analyst thought mid-teen returns would be the floor on new pricing, but is now less certain that is the case. Dargan now has less confidence in future estimates.

Private mortgage insurer stocks have found a bottom, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Phil Stefano raised his price target for MGIC Investment (MTG) to $16 from $14 saying the company's Q2 results reinforce his belief that the private mortgage insurer stocks have found a bottom. The decline MGIC saw in new defaults and claim rate should be evident in peers' coming results, Stefano tells investors in a research note. As such, the analyst sees upside for consensus estimates in the sector following earnings prints this quarter.
