Why Does Wall Street Hate The Progressive Corporation?

In this segment from Friday's Where the Money Is, Motley Fool financial analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson take a question from a Fool reader, who writes, "Hey guys, great show. I just bought my first stock ever: Progressive . I did this based on Inside Value's recommendation and my own research...The company seems to be very good at managing risk and I like how they have a slight upper hand over other companies because they sell directly to the consumer, allowing for a higher margin like GEICO. I think Progressive definitely has the potential to grow over the next few years. What do you guys think?"
