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.

(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.

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.

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.
