Marsh & Mclennan Companies (MMC) Receives a Buy from Wells Fargo


Wells Fargo analyst Elyse Greenspan maintained a Buy rating on Marsh & Mclennan Companies (NYSE: MMC) yesterday. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $83.53.

Greenspan wrote:

“We believe the insurance brokers should show continued strong organic growth in Q3 and we believe those with the strongest growth and prospects for earnings estimates to be revised up are positioned to outperform. Top on the list to us is AJG as it is best positioned to beat organic growth expectations and the stock should positively respond. We have been getting the most questions on Willis of late – and our view is that it is hard to say with certainty that the Q2 organic slowdown is only a one quarter issue and we believe a big focus will be placed on the Q3 growth the company sees.”

According to TipRanks.com, Greenspan is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 6.0% and a 67.0% success rate. Greenspan covers the Financial sector, focusing on stocks such as American International Group, Renaissancere Holdings Ltd, and United Insurance Holdings.
