Today's write-up is for all investors who are seriously contemplating on taking a position in Loews. I will summarize the rationale of why Loews stakeholders were not insulted from the new market pull down. The company current daily volatility is 1.22 percent, with beta of -0.07 and alpha of -0.01 over Russell 2000 . What is Loews Target Price Odds to finish over Current Price? Out from normal probability distribution, the odds of Loews to move above current price in 30 days from now is about 21.52%. The Loews Corporation probability density function shows the probability of Loews Stock to fall within a particular range of prices over 30 days . Taking into account the 30 trading days horizon, Loews Corporation has beta of -0.0692 indicating as returns on benchmark increase, returns on holding Loews are expected to decrease at a much smaller rate. During bear market, however, Loews Corporation is likely to outperform the market. Additionally, the company has a negative alpha implying that the risk taken by holding this equity is not justified. Loews is significantly underperforming Russell 2000 .
Loews gains 0.75 percent regardless of modest market pull down

Loews has accumulated 12.25 B in total debt with debt to equity ratio (D/E) of 54.7 implying that the organisation may be unable to produce cash to meet its debt commitments. This firm dividends can provide a clue to current valuation of the stock. Loews one year expected dividend income is about $0.13 per share. Lets now take a look at Loews Operating Margin. Based on recorded statements Loews Corporation has Operating Margin of 14.65%. This is 20.6% lower than that of the Financial Services sector, and 145.81% higher than that of Insurance - Property & Casualty industry, The Operating Margin for all stocks is 365.88% lower than Loews.

The small decline in market price for the last few months may encourage investors to take a closer look at the firm as it closed today at a share price of 50.49 on 1.000 in trading volume. The company management did not add much value to Loews investors in October. However, diversifying your holdings with Loews or similar stocks can still protect your portfolio during high-volatility market scenarios. The stock standard deviation of daily returns for 30 days (very short) investing horizon is currently 1.2216. The below-average Stock volatility is a good sign for a longer term investment options and for buy-and-hold investors. Loews retains number of employees of 17.9 k. Loews is selling for under 50.87. That is 0.75 percent increase. Started trading at 50.87. Loews Gross Margin is increasing over the last 4 years. Moreover, Loews Return on Average Assets is decreasing over the last 4 years. The previous year value of Loews Return on Average Assets was 0.0001.

To conclude, our research shows that Loews is very steady with close to average probability of distress in the next two years. Our final buy vs. sell advice on the business is Cautious Hold.

Loews Debt to Cash Allocation

The company has accumulated 12.19 B in total debt with debt to equity ratio (D/E) of 54.7 implying that the company may be unable to produce cash to meet its debt commitments.
