We determine the current worth of Progressive using both absolute as well as relative valuation methodologies to arrive at its intrinsic value. In general, an absolute valuation paradigm, as applied to this company, attempts to find the value of Progressive based exclusively on its fundamental and basic technical indicators. By analyzing Progressive's financials, quarterly and monthly indicators, and related drivers such as dividends, operating cash flow, and various types of growth rates, we attempt to find the most accurate representation of Progressive's intrinsic value. In some cases, mostly for established, large-cap companies, we also incorporate more traditional valuation methods such as dividend discount, discounted cash flow, or asset-based models. As compared to an absolute model, our relative valuation model uses a comparative analysis of Progressive. We calculate exposure to Progressive's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to Progressive's related companies.
