Travelers Companies Inc (NYSE:TRV) Poised to Decline with The Market
We recognize that Travelers Companies Inc (NYSE:TRV) is a bellwether stock that is widely held and considered top quality by veteran institutional investors, and for the most part we do not disagree, but when markets come under pressure good stocks fall too, especially ones that have meager growth rates.
That is exactly what TRV investors are faced with. The Growth rates are expected to be dismal for the foreseeable future, and although the PE multiple does not look ridiculous when compared to other companies, it is very hard to justify a multiple like the current one given the negative current year and meager following growth rates.
In our opinion, given our longer term macroeconomic analysis called The Investment Rate, the Market is poised to come under severe pressure, and if it does shares of TRV are likely to get hit hard.
