He still likes the name and it pays a decent dividend.

They started to pay a dividend in 2010, and have done a great job of consistently raising it. He continues to buy this.

A great way to play the housing market in the US. They provide Title Insurance which is needed when buying a home. As new home sales increase, and as the resale market transactions continue to go up, housing market activity bodes well for this company. He feels there is still upside in the housing market. Also, as rates go up in the US, this company stands to benefit because they park the cash into fixed income that they get as premiums. This is still reasonably priced.
