Progressive initiated with an Outperform at Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse analyst Michael Zaremski started Progressive (PGR) with an Outperform rating and $73 price target. The analyst believes telematics has been and will continue to be a profitability game changer, and thinks Progressive, and to a lesser extent, Allstate (ALL), have huge leads on the competition, which he feels will afford them competitive advantages for years to come. Zaremski estimates Progressive has telematics data on approximately 25% of its customers, and expects this number to more than double in the coming 24 months, which will enable Progressive to further refine its underwriting factors to price risk more accurately and continue attracting the industry's best risks.

Buckingham finds auto insurance placeholder on Amazon site
After an earlier article in "The Information" hinted that Amazon (AMZN) has contemplated offering home insurance in bundles with its smart devices, Buckingham analyst Amit Kumar said that when he went on Amazon's website, he found empty links/placeholders for "Financial Services" and "Auto Insurance," though he added he did not see a placeholder for "Homeowners." In terms of market share, Kumar said Allstate (ALL) is the most exposed to an Amazon entry to home, with 27% of its top line coming from Homeowners. In Personal Auto, Progressive (PGR) and Allstate are exposed with 82% and 68% of their premiums coming from auto insurance, the analyst stated. Other publicly traded companies in the insurance space include ACE Limited (ACE), AIG (AIG), Chubb (CB), Hartford Financial (HIG) and Travelers (TRV).

Amazon more likely to partner with home insurers, JPMorgan says
Insuring homes is a highly regulated business that requires major infrastructure to settle claims and the catastrophe exposure is significant, JPMorgan analyst Sarah DeWitt tells investors in a research note after The Information reported that Amazon.com (AMZN) is considering offering homeowner's Insurance. The analyst would be surprised if Amazon sought to fully manufacture homeowners' insurance and thinks a partnership with insurers would be more likely. Names in the property and casualty insurance space include Progressive (PGR), Allstate (ALL), Chubb (CB), Hartford Financial (HIG) and Travelers (TRV).

Amazon unlikely to overly disrupt insurance market, says Keefe Bruyette
Amazon.com's (AMZN) possible entry into homeowners insurance is unlikely to be "overly disruptive" to the industry, Keefe Bruyette analyst Meyer Shields told investors earlier in a research note. The analyst says that in the past, the U.S has been a relatively slow adopter of online insurance offerings. Names in the property and casualty insurance space include AIG (AIG), Allstate (ALL), Chubb (CB), Hartford Financial (HIG), Progressive (PGR) and Travelers (TRV).
