Credit Suisse added Progressive Corp. (NYSE: PGR) to its U.S. Focus List with a negative bent. The firm reiterated an Underperform rating and price target of $28.

The firm's thesis: "Our bottom-up analysis shows that high growth levels only accounted for around half of the 2.5-3.0 points of margin deterioration, pointing to risk to 2017 consensus estimates. Margin stabilization is likely to come at a price given the current loss trend environment. As a result the set of profitability/growth permutations that we see as realistic may come as a disappointment given the stock’s lofty historical valuation."
