New York City, New York -- (June 14, 2013)
The property & casualty industry in the U.S. saw a sharp rise in catastrophe losses last year in the wake of super-storm Sandy. The rising losses struck the industry at a time when it was already grappling with an uncertain economic environment. In addition, low interest rates created further challenges for the industry. However, the outlook for property & casualty industry has certainly improved since the start of 2013 as the U.S. economy has continued to show signs of recovery. On Thursday, June 13, 2013, shares in property & casualty insurance companies ended mostly higher, tracking gains in the broader market, which rallied despite ongoing concerns over the Federal Reserve’s bond buying program. The major movers yesterday included American International Group Inc. (NYSE: AIG), Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. (NYSE: HIG), The Chubb Corporation (NYSE: CB), and Loews Corporation (NYSE: L). StockCall has posted free technical research reports on AIG, HIG, CB, and L and these can be accessed by signing up at
