It's Time to Check Out Progressive

April reports for Progressive Corp.  (NYSE: PGR  ) were recently released, and this insurance company's ears must be burning. Why should investors check this company out? 

Today on Investor Beat, Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Matt Koppenheffer explain why Progressive is a stock to watch. Matt offers that, while he hasn't taken a look into Progressive before, he thinks the stock is worth a look. He has recently discovered how progressive the company is while at the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. Matt watched Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger discuss Progressive's program to price risks by measuring drivers' habits. He also listened to Tom Gayner, CIO of Markel Insurance (NYSE: MKL  ) , talk about other respectable insurance companies, which included Progressive. As a recommendation in the Inside Value newsletter, Matt has a hard time ignoring all the signs telling him to keep an eye out for this insurance company.
