BTIG analyst Ryan Gilbert lowered the firm's price target on Essent Group to $55 from $58 but keeps a Buy rating on the shares as part of a broader research note on Mortgage and Title Insurance names. The analyst is also cutting his EPS projections for the group to reflect lower purchase mortgage volumes in the first half of this year and an uptick in new defaults. Gilbert still views Essent Group as his "top pick" however given its "excellent expense control, a balanced approach to pricing vs NIW growth, and solid capital return".

JPMorgan analyst Richard Shane upgraded Essent Group to Overweight from Neutral with a price target of $47, down from $54. Credit and loan growth are normalizing for card issuers and underbanked, but normalization for auto and student lending has likely been delayed, said Shane, who has lowered target multiples across the consumer finance sector by about 18%, on average, to reflect economic uncertainty.
