Non traditional auto insurance in both Canada and the US. Very small exposure/loss to the hurricane Katrina. Stock was a little bit weak on that basis. Trades at not very much above book and at single digit earnings multiples.

In a very competitive area from a pricing point of view, but are one of the premier companies in the non-standard auto. A volatile stock. Well run. Fairly priced at these levels. If you see a hiccup, it would be a good time to buy.

Looking at financial services, it's by far the cheapest stock. They'll earn $2.50 this year. Looks like some decent growth. 8 X earnings.

Had a terrific quarter. For the first time ever, it actually reversed reserves it had made for accidents. Strong management and the stock still has some way to run.

(A Top Pick Feb 28/05. Down 3%.) Waiting to see what this quarter brings. There were some pretty good earnings from Allstate (ALL-N) which leads him to believe that this company will have a pretty good quarter. Thinks the stock is cheap on a fundamental basis.

A high risk insurer for uninsurable drivers. This can be very profitable. Had hiccups during their expansion in the US last year. A good entry point. Try to buy on a weak day.

Does a really good job in a high risk driver area. Flush with cash. Price has dropped, so it's a buying opportunity.

Had some issues with their reserves, but thinks that is finally behind them. The combined ratio (ratio of expenses paid out to premiums taken in is finally getting a little more respectable and is now below 100. Forcasting $2.50 in a go forward basis. Just instituted a dividend of roughly 1%.
