Excellent company. Supplies data to insurance companies. Only risk is consolidation, where insurance companies wouldn't need to buy the data, as they'd have it if they were big enough. A resilient business, so not the best place to be in the first stage of an economic recovery. He prefers a capital goods cyclical right now, such as DE or CAT.

It is a great company to invest in. He has held it since 2019. They help actuaries figure out how better to price risk. They are using new technology to sort through big data. This is great for a very long term hold.
Their stock buyback as their stock price is high He has owned this before. It's doing well recently and he watches it. They supply information to the insurance industry in order to price insurance and manage the claims process. Clients have little choice but to use VRSK's services; can't do it themselves. There's some upside in the oil industry--VRSK provides information on oil and gas reservoirs, so this segment could benefit from a cyclical upside in the wider market. They are in a cash-generating business. Their buybacks have never been excessive. He doesn't own it, because there are better ideas out there with better upside in an improving economy now.
He holds this for clients. They began buying at $110. The company provides analytics using massive data sets and selling data sets to different industries. They sell to insurance companies, for example, who would all for more accurate underwriting in a more profitable way. They provide similar services for the oil and gas sector. These are mission critical projects. The need will be rising going forward. He would continue to hold.
(A Top Pick Jan 13/20, Down 13%) They sell about 10% of their revenue from the oil and gas sector, but the majority comes from the insurance space. They offer a service that helps insurance companies price risk. Over the long term, they will do fine.
They supply data-analytics to insurers. They have 90% of the P&C insurance industry as customers; and will continue to build that database of information. (Analysts’ price target is $161.73)
He bought it in January. It's had a nice run since. A data management company for insurance and financial industries to underwrite policies. Currently not buying any more since it's a little expensive. Will continue to hold it in the long-run and data mining is a huge business.
Can you please describe their business? Their largest business is in providing underwriting data to insurance companies. Insurance is relatively fragmented, so they benefit by this data sharing. The industry relies on this data set to underwrite risk in property and casualty risk. They also own a oil and gas reservoir evaluation business.
Has gone up in value, so he might take a half position. De facto analytics company in energy, chemicals, and materials. Takes raw business data and turns it into something meaningful.
