Analysts at BMO Capital Markets made several changes to their price targets and ratings of insurance companies.

Chubb Downgraded To Market Perform

Charles Sebaski of BMO Capital Markets downgraded shares of Chubb Ltd (NYSE: CB) to Market Perform from Outperform with a price target raised to $136 from a previous $134.

Sebaski noted that shares of Chubb are trading above $130 per share and now is a “good time for investors to take their foot off the gas a little.”

The analyst is still positive on the business and expects the company to generate long-term value creation. However, the 25 percent return in the company’s stock over the past 52-weeks serves as a sign that investors should “wait for a better entry point.”

Nevertheless, Chubb’s stock should still be a core long-term holding for insurance investors and any dip in the stock should be considered a good entry point.
