He has owned this for 15 years. A family run company in special property insurance coverage. Their premium investments have been in bonds and is well diversified. As interest rates are likely near a bottom, their profits should continue to look great. He would continue to own it.

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)

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Aug 19/15. Up 4.25%.) A specialty, property company. Probably the least known and best run property casualty company in the US. They have niche markets such as trucking fleets, Californian Worker’s Compensation and liability insurance for lawyers. A rising rate environment will be good for this company.

TOP PICK

Specialty property/casualty insuring for niche markets, where there is not as much competition. Probably one of the most profitable insurance companies globally. About 94% of their investments are in bonds, mostly investment grade, so they’ll be a major beneficiary when interest rates go up.  Raises its dividend every year and have paid special dividends in the last 3 years. Dividend yield of 1.37%.

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.

Owned for a decade.  Niche provider of insurance products like crop and horse protection.  Exposure is significant that they can move into Lloyd’s space.  Did increase dividend even though crops weren’t good.  Less volatile than broader equities.  20% discount to pier group.

Specialty insurance company, which was not caught up in the bad paper. Earnings estimates keep going up. ROE is in the mid teens. Combined ratio is in the 80s, which is fabulous for an insurance company. Good real estate assets.
