There are hundreds of small property/casualty companies and this company would like to be a consolidator. A wonderful operator.

On his radar screen. Likes it. The only big general property/casualty that's available in Canada. A cyclical business and we are somewhere near the top of the cycle. Very efficient.

Likes the business in Canada. It's a tough and fragmented business and management has shown that they can make prudent acquisitions and drive costs out. Further consolidation will be needed to drive it further.

Has become the dominant property casualty insurance company in Canada largely through acquisitions and attrition. Would wait for it to sell off before buying.

One of the leading property/casualty companies. Really good 1st quarter numbers. Could be an acquirer.

Cheap. You have to watch out for compression of the auto insurance underwriting ratio. Auto insurance is a volatile business. This is why it trades at a cheap multiple. Had an awesome earnings year. Made a very significant acquisition which entails an integration risk, but the numbers seem to be coming in.

Property and casualty has had some nice pricing pressure over the last little while. Relatively cheap. Good company.

Well run. Unlikely to see another pop in price in next 6 months. Solid long term investment.

Good market for insurers. No one making claims. Shaving off profits as the years to come.

Right now is a very good time to be in the property/casualty business in Canada. Fundamentals are very good. Longer term property/casualty is cyclical, so not a Buy and Hold.

Large property/casualty insurer which was spun out from the ING Bank. Reasonably priced and there is a decent dividend. Well run.

Thought the new issues was priced at the higher end of expectations. There is no doubt there is a huge appetitie for this kind of quality stock. Could easily move up 10% in the next 12 months from the issue price.
