What Caught Our Attention in the Investment World? – Week of October 17-21, 2022

By Kuldip K. Ambastha

On Thursday, October 21, 2022, the stock price of The Allstate Corporation (ALL), an insurance provider operating in the USA plus Canada, dropped by -12.9% per share, with a mix of various factors leading to the stock of The Allstate Corporation having troubles on this trading day. On a high level, participants in the stock market have become increasingly bearish over the course of 2022, with Allstate immune in the past but more likely to be affected going forward due to the factors noted below. Increased premiums on insurance policies are not offsetting increased payouts due to Hurricane Ian and other occurrences. Furthermore, Allstate’s pool of funds used to fund coverage payouts has not grown significantly in 2022, while Allstate is unable to aggressively increase premiums (to account for higher inflation) without potentially losing customers. In summary, such negative factors are weighing heavily on the stock price of Allstate.
