Sentiment: Strong Buy
Wow. 9 days with no response. That explains why, within the industry, we are hearing rumors of everything from heart problems, to a mental breakdown with him checking in to an inpatient treatment center. Wonder what the truth really is.
What is the explanation for the CEO leaving for 6 months? Was there a medical issue? I know its personal, but he is CEO of a publicly traded company. Does anyone know what really happened?
Good post. I know for a fact that other brokerages are concerned about this. One has even put a hiring freeze on for EB folks.
I listened to a replay of the BRO investor call yesterday and was surprised that no analyst queried the broker's management on the future margin prospects in the company's large employee benefits business. I strongly suspect that insurers that underwrite small case health insurance, i.e., 100 lives or less, will be reducing commission levels due to the minimum loss ratio mandate under Obamacare. Since brokering such coverage comprises the bulk of Brown's employee benefits business, the implication is that margins in this segment will be coming under pressure in the near future. I'd love to hear what the company's management has to say on this topic.
BRO reported its 2Q12 EPS this evening and missed the "street" estimate by $0.02 because of a lower margin. This result is consistent with the message of the company's CEO that he is willing to sacrifice margin in order to grow revenue. It will be interesting to observe how this strategy plays among investors when Powell is queried on the company's investor call tomorrow morning.
