(A Top Pick Dec 05/18, Up 29%) Remains a cheap stock. They're the best in P&E insurance and executes very well. Consumers aren't making claims on car accidents, fearing higher rates. Allstate is firing on all cylinders and trading cheaply. They've bought back half shares and raise their dividend every year.

Allstate invests in bonds.Can Allstate make money investing in the premiums? And, is PE or PB a better metric to value insurance companies? Every insurance invests heavily in bonds. The price of bond yields is built into the price of insurance premiums; all baked in. Note that property and casualty insurance is re-priced each year, so PC can absorb losses in bonds. Secondly, Allstate is very disciplined and has enjoying 10% dividend growth in recent years. PB, Allstate isn't expensive at 14x PE and 1.5x PB, which are both key metrics. They are best in class.

Climate change impacts? With this company there are several factors -- climate change is one. Low interest rates are more detrimental as premiums collected do not generate as much income. This is probably the biggest challenge in the insurance space. ALL-N is one of the better names in the business.

Insurance provider. They are a lot larger than people realize. 12k offices, 16 Million clients. They are quite diverse. You may want to look at this high quality name. They have a high combined ratio: what is coming in to what is going out in claims. A large part is auto insurance. They have a low dividend payout ratio so should be able to raise their dividend (2.4%). He prefers other PRA-N.

Pricing for premiums became firm because of Sandy. Expects increases in premiums of 6-8% every year for 3-5 years and this will transfer to the bottom line. 2% dividend with room to grow.

Bad times for financials but less so for insurance companies. At under $50 it is yielding a little over 3%. Have increased the dividend every year they have been public. Had started with 900 million shares but through buy-backs they are now down to about 563 million. 1.3X book and about 8X earnings makes it a good valuation.

Likes the insurance business in the US. It's not all that expensive. Relatively cheap. Well run. Would prefer American International Group (AIG-N) which has been hurt a little bit more.
