Company Report

Verisk Earnings: Healthy Demand and Pricing Upside Amid Industry Profitability Headwinds

Wide-moat Verisk Analytics reported reasonable fourth-quarter and full-year fiscal 2023 results, which marginally surpassed our top-line forecasts but fell short of our above-guidance margin expectations. Amid industry profitability woes in 2023, Verisk enjoyed steady demand for most solutions, reflecting the mission-critical nature of the firm’s data and analytics tools, which allow insurers to achieve optimal underwriting and claims outcomes and improve internal efficiencies amid hefty insurance losses.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Verisk is doubling down on the regulatory advantaged insurance vertical, which we believe will support a material improvement in returns on invested capital and profitability.

Bears

Verisk is exposed to evolving data privacy regulation and increased public scrutiny, which may curb access or increase the cost of sourcing data assets.
