Valuation

BUY
Verisk Analytics

They suppled boring data to the boring insurance industry, but he likes boring. They've bought back 7.3% of its shares this year. Also, its lifetime chart is sharply higher. They sold their non-core business (selling data to energy companies) to become a pure data insurance company. Good. That sale paid for the buyback. They report lots of capital to shareholders.

WAIT

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.

BUY
Verisk Analytics
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.

COMMENT
Verisk Analytics
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.

BUY ON WEAKNESS
Verisk Analytics
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.

COMMENT
Verisk Analytics
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.

PARTIAL BUY
Verisk Analytics
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.
