He prefers buying a insurance company directly like Manulife and Intact. Though well-run, FFH has a mixed bag of many assets. This mix adds a level of risk vs. pure insurers.

Good job growing book value. Multiple contracting, consolidation period. So something to look at. Hasn't done a ton of research on it.

It was a counter cyclical until they took all their losses and now have all these junky names that aren't doing that well, so it is pro-cyclical. He would stay away from it.

Some of the recent investments have been questionable and the stock has been underperforming for a while. It is probably at a deep discount compared to its book value. He has moved away from conglomerate insurance companies.

He thinks they failed on several fronts. Their insurance division faces interest rates that are zero or going negative. If we stay in a deflation world, it will be hell for them for the next several years. He sees no reason to own this right now.

It has wide swings with respect to its earnings profile. Its insurance operations have been fairly steady. You will see more volatility in the stock short term, yet there has been a lot of management buying of the stock. It is a very well managed company that will continue to do well.

FFH buying BB? He thought the rumour of FFH buying BB created a lot of volume, which made him suspect. BB has a lot of automotive exposure, which hold back their recovery post-pandemic. BB has a cyber-security division that may lead to some opportunities.

The environment is so difficult for them. They are not making any money on the float. If it drops below $314, the market is questioning the viability of the balance sheet. The tide is going out. Put a stop in place.

Prem Watsa has been under fire lately. Their underlying insurance business will struggle under low interest rates to generate profits and income. Watsa's investments in the past decade have been dubious.

(A Top Pick Feb 05/19, Down 7%) He still likes it. It is a very well run company. Today their insurance business is as strong as it has ever been. They've been doing a good job monetizing some investments on the investment side of the business. It is trading at book but peers are trading at 1.5 times book.

(A Top Pick Sep 12/19, Up 2%) He still thinks Prem Watsa will deliver. FFH has a global reach and long-term commitment to India. $540-600 band is supportive, but he's looking for upside above $600-620. If so, this could go to $800.

Insurance and hedge businesses lead to some volatility in earnings. The chart doesn't show much, neutral, and doesn't indicate much opportunity. Can't see it going up or down. It's stuck in a range.

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.

He sold this recently. The stock has a pattern of bouncing off support at $550. That was broken recently so he exited. It may still rally back to $700, but he has moved his money elsewhere.
