  • Miller Tabak Downgrades ACE Limited to "Hold" (ACE)

    Miller Tabak announced on Thursday that it was downgrading its rating on the Zurich-based insurance company, ACE Limited (ACE) , from "Buy" to "Hold," but was raising its price target on the company. Tom Mitchell, an analyst with the firm, noted "Given a recent influx of capital into the worldwide property/casualty industry, we believe a sustained strong up-cycle in rates is not in the cards for 2014". Mitchell went onto add that, "These market conditions strongly suggest to us that ACE, having achieved a premium equity valuation vs. its peers, will trend toward matching the group's overall returns unless or until events causing more severe underwriting losses draw fresh attention to ACE's superior underwriting disciplines." As such, Miller Tabak downgraded the rating on the stock from "Buy" to "Hold," but raised its price target from $91.50 to $96.35. ACE Limited shares traded lower on Thursday, shedding 1.95% on the day. The stock is up almost 16% YTD.

  • ACE Limited Q1 Profit Slips 2%; Operating EPS Tops Views (ACE)

    After the bell on Monday, insurance provider ACE Limited (ACE) reported a decline in first quarter profit. However, operating income rose 6%, topping Wall Street estimates. The Switzerland-based company posted a first quarter net income of $953 million, or $2.77 per share, down from $973 million, or $2.84 per share, in the same period last year. Operating income rose however, coming in at $746 million, or $2.17 per share, from $701 million, or $2.05 per share, a year ago. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, this beat the analysts' expectation that ACE would earn $1.94 per share in the quarter. Net premiums written for the first quarter rose to $3.80 billion from $3.57 billion last year. Analysts were expecting $3.33 billion in net premiums for the quarter. Net premiums earned in the first quarter were $3.57 billion, compared to $3.38 billion earned last year. "We are taking full advantage of the improved commercial P&C [property and casualty] pricing environment in the U.S. and our strong presence in areas of the world where economic fundamentals are superior, such as Asia and Latin America," ACE Limited CEO Evan Greenberg said in a statement. ACE Ltd's P&C combined ratio, which measures the percentage of premium revenue that the company has to pay out in claims, fell from 89.2% last year to 88.2% in the most recent quarter; this aided in the rise of operating income. Despite the first quarter earnings beat, low interest rates continue to negatively impact the company's net investment income; it fell more than 2% to $531 million in the quarter. Looking ahead to full year 2013 earnings, the company expects operating income to be between $7.10 and $7.50 per share; this is up from the previous view from the company that it would see operating income between $6.60 and $7.00 per share. However, the revised outlook is still below the analyst view of $7.85 per share. ACE Limited shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Tuesday. The stock is up +11.87% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of ACE Limited (ACE) have a dividend yield of 2.20% based on last night's closing price of $89.27 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.96 per share. ACE Limited (ACE) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
