Top Insurance Stocks To Invest In 2019

Hurricane Maria was devastating for the residents of Puerto Rico. It hurt debt investors, too. Some of the island’s bonds plunged more than 40 percent after the storm flooded the island, knocked out its electric power, and clobbered its economy.

Now bond rating agencies such as Moody’s Investors Service and S&P Global Ratings are looking at whether they should be including more disaster forecasting in calculating the grades they give to government debt and to companies in industries ranging from insurance to construction. The agencies have looked at these risks for years and issued reports on them, but in recent months they’ve been working to integrate this research more into individual ratings. In November, Moody’s warned coastal cities and states to address their climate risks or face possible downgrades. A month later, it issued a report highlighting 18 small islands, from Fiji to the Bahamas, that were “particularly susceptible to climate change.” S&P analysts are working with its insurance practice on climate models and scenario research.

Top Insurance Stocks To Invest In 2019: PRA Group, Inc.(PRAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Like many businesses, debt collection is a cyclical industry, and as a major player in that industry, PRA Group (NASDAQ:PRAA) is subject to the ups and downs of the economy. During good times, there aren’t as many nonperforming loans for PRA Group to collect on. Only when times get tough do default rates move higher, spurring many creditors to turn their collections over to PRA.

PRA Group (NASDAQ:PRAA) has become a leader in debt collection, but what’s especially surprising is that even in a strong economy featuring low unemployment rates and steadily rising wage growth, the company has started to see some favorable trends in its collection activity.
