Brown & Brown’s Business, Investment Results Bring Gains

FXEmpire.com -

BRO’s new business, stable retention, core fees, rate jumps, and acquisitions have put it in a strong financial position. The company is on a strong run that’s seen it outperform the market over the past five years on an annualized basis by roughly 9%. And it’s expected to grow current earnings by 28.5%.

It’s no wonder BRO shares are up 31% this year – and they could rise more. MAPsignals data shows how Big Money investors are betting heavily on the forward picture of the stock.
