It is a specialty insurance company. Hardly anyone follows it. A family owns a quarter of it and runs it. They make money on their policies as well as their investments. They raise their dividend every year. They paid a special dividend in December, which they do most years. It is a great buy and hold. (Analysts’ price target is $113.33)

Slow and steady. Not a sexy company. They insure horses, speedboats, commercial car fleets. Because they dominate small niches, they just tend to slowly move along and slowly increase the dividend. Good corporate governance and good risk management.
