Company Report

Verisk Earnings: Healthy Demand Across Most Solutions As P&C Industry Profitability Improves

We keep our $225 per share fair value estimate for wide-moat Verisk Analytics following a strong start to fiscal 2024, which met our top-line expectations but fell marginally short of our profitability forecasts. Verisk shares rallied after results as earnings surpassed consensus estimates, boosted by a relatively lower tax burden and lower average share count after an accelerated share repurchase program. Nevertheless, Verisk continues to screen as fairly valued relative to our unchanged valuation.

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.
