Very well run. Fundamentals in the P&C insurance industry are very positive. It's a "hard market", so they're enjoying significant price increases and more volume across different lines of business. Currently making a pretty significant acquisition.

(A Top Pick Mar 11/20, Up 20%) Recommended this on the eve of covid. Wanted something steady and it did well. They bought RSA in Q2 that gives value to shareholders. Still a fragmented business and has good upside potential. Trading at 12x 2023. Still likes it.

Very well run company, but would consider it if the price were 15% lower. You can buy this and do well over several years. Happy to recommend it. Their combined ratio has always been on the positive side.

Dominant property and casualty insurer with 17% market share in home, auto, commercial and specialty lines. They are going through a $12B acquisition that will give them a presence in the UK. Longer-term forces like climate change and rising property values give them higher premiums and higher insured values. There is a hardening market in their insurance space. (Analysts’ price target is $181.78)

Fundamentals are very strong. Investors are unsure about recent RSA acquisition. Undervalued at these levels. Great opportunity to buy. Great story. Good strong dividend payer. Will execute well on the RSA deal.

The stock has been a high performer in recent years, so it's cooling down now and testing support levels. That is not the worst thing, though. It remains well-run and continues to dominate market share. As it consolidates with this European acquisition, watch it. As Intact touches the 50- or 200-day moving average, buy it.

Doesn't want to add more risk if there is no need. The RSA purchase gives them greater scale, distribution and more avenues for growth. Synergistic. The market is waiting to see results. The stock will rerate with results. Good to grow quiet wealth. (Analysts’ price target is $176.00)

A quality name to own. Likes the stock. Modelling 9.3% growth. It is trading at 14x 2022 so it is quite expensive price to book. They did an interesting deal recently. If you look at Canadian financials they are very cheap by PE ratio. Would buy it around $136.

A sensational performer since its IPO. Operates efficiently, smart acquisitions. Likes the RSA deal, as it adds diversity and bolsters market share. Exposure to commercial real estate, but it's a manageable risk.

Looks more interesting with the potential acquisition of RSA, as it expands their growth potential. Excellent operators. P&C insurance gets repriced annually, a plus. She's planning to research it more closely.

A major insurer. Their biggest expense is going down hard--auto claims. With people under lockdown, people aren't driving much, so the quantity of auto claims is lower than ever based on Q2 results. This boasts their underwriting profit and will be a tailwind for a long while. They're also generating investing income, which may be pressured with interest rates low. IFC is a great company and marketer. A fine consolidator in a fragmented industry. A solid, long-term hold and a buy.

An outstandingly well managed company. It has run up and the valuation is on the premium side. The insurance they are in is doing well so you might want to wait for softening on the market or a one time event like forest fires. Long term you will do okay.
