PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 23/18, Down 16%) They're trying to be Berskshire Hathaway which invests its cash in stocks instead of bonds, and like BAM, MKL is getting into managing wealth through insurance linked securities which turned into a mess. And the CEO was having an affair with an employee. A distaster. That said, he still owns it because it has a brilliant record of allocating capital and investing those proceeds. This is now an amazing buying opportunity.

Markel Corporation.(MKL-N) 

January 22, 2019

A mini-Berkshire Hathaway. It's done well picking stocks. But when the stock market declines, so does MKL. Look at their book and asset value. Buty this around 1.3-1.5x PB. He will look at this at year's end. Smart management.

It's like Berkshire Hathaway, an insurer that invests in stocks--with a good track record. He's done very well with MKL. A smart company.

TOP PICK

They've emulated the Berkshire Hathaway business model. It's an insurance company that's really a growth company. They've had only three negative years in 15, and invest in stocks that outperform the S&P 500. They're starting to buy private companies and build them up. No dividend, but he expects major growth going forward. Get in now. (Analysts' price target $1,115.75)

HOLD

A very well-run insurance company. A management team similar to Berkshire Hathaway. Known for not only their sound underwriting, but for being very astute investors. Over a very long period of time, they have compounded their BV at an above average rate of growth. Alternatively, you could consider Fairfax Financial (FFH-T) or Brookshire Hathaway (BRK.A-N) or (BRK.B-N).

A high quality company that is cheap. Insurance stocks have become incredibly compressed because of the fear of higher interest rates and it has been overdone.
