A catalyst? His model price is $571, so it is a little expensive here. The story is stale he thinks and expects it to continue to be range bound.

Three-year time horizon. He sold this, because it wasn't performing, failing to reach 2018 highs. Doesn't see a sign of that happening...yet. He's neutral on it, but look elsewhere.

It's suffering. It's a "black box" with insurance and investment sides; the latter has had a checkered performance. It had a big dip in the past 12 months. It does well in relatively poor markets, though. Maybe it's a buy on a pullback.

It peaked in mid-2018, and has been in a downtrend since. Currently, it is testing a support level; watch it if it falls below that. Not excited about this stock.

He admires the company. The problem the market has is that the earnings can be so erratic. In the latest quarter they had some non-cash gains due to consolidation. The value of the stock will follow the underlying book value of the company which has continued to climb over the years.

Their insurance business boasts strong combine ratios. American insurance companies trades at 1.6x book vs. FFH trading below book value. They have big investments in India and globally. They have other direct investments in India, and he's confident about that country's long-term. Now is the best time to buy FFH in 10 years.

Very stable company, so little volatility. Their insurance business floats their business, but CEO Prem tends to underperform his investments. Earnings aren't cheap. He prefers MFC in the insurance space. But if there is a recession, FFH is a reliable flight to safety.
