Financial Performance and Market Position

Arch Capital Group has demonstrated impressive financial performance over the past few years. The company has experienced steady growth, with its share price appreciating by 177.26% over the past five years, and 57.92% over the past year. The company's robust performance has resulted in an impressive all-time price performance of 3106.67%.

Currently, Arch Capital Group Ltd. has a market capitalization of approximately $27.868 billion and generated over $10.84 billion in revenue in the trailing twelve months (TTM). The company's EBITDA stands at $2.2 billion, signifying solid operational efficiency.


The company's PE ratio of 14.44, which is lower than the average for the S&P 500, suggests that the stock could be undervalued compared to its earnings. This notion is further supported by the forward PE of 11.34, implying that earnings are expected to grow. However, the PEG ratio is 2.24, suggesting that the company may be overvalued when considering its growth rate.

Ownership Structure

The institutional ownership for Arch Capital Group Ltd is 91.16%, indicating that the stock is popular among sophisticated investors. The company's major shareholders include Vanguard Group Inc., BlackRock Inc., and State Street Corporation, which are known for their strategic and long-term investments. The considerable holding by these established institutions reflects their confidence in the company's financial health and future prospects.

Analyst Ratings

According to the given data, the stock is favorably rated by analysts, with a rating of 4.18 out of 5. Analysts have set a target price of $82.95, suggesting that they expect the stock price to appreciate from its current level of $73.04. With four strong buy ratings, five buy ratings, and two hold ratings, the consensus among analysts appears to be quite bullish.

Recent Insider Activity

Insider activity can offer some insight into the company's outlook. Recently, several executives have been selling their shares, including Louis T Petrillo, Maamoun Rajeh, Francois Morin, and Nicolas Papadopoulo. Although this selling activity could be a red flag, it's important to remember that insiders may sell their shares for many reasons that are not necessarily related to their outlook on the company.


Arch Capital Group Ltd. appears to be a potentially promising investment. The company has a strong market presence, robust financial performance, and solid growth. Its favorable valuation metrics, particularly the PE ratio, suggest that the stock may be undervalued. The company's stock also enjoys strong institutional backing and has received positive ratings from analysts. While the recent insider selling warrants monitoring, it does not automatically indicate a negative outlook. As always, prospective investors should conduct their own due diligence and consider their risk tolerance before investing.

In terms of any kind of short term entry, the stock has had a pretty strong pullback and you would need to wait to see if it turns around. I would pay particular attention to any upwards movement on both the RSI and MACD for any kind of confirmation. For downside risk management, a trailing stop loss of around 10% would have kept you in most of this trade. If it broke below that it could have been a good sign to exit and look for a new entry when the trend resumed.

As always how you interpret and decide to act on any results is up to you. This is just data not financial or trading advice and past performance is in no way any guarantee of future performance. Think of it as a way to spot stocks you might be interested in and can add to your watch list and perform further research on and or discuss with your broker.

One to watch.
Nice 3% bounce off support.
