    Institutional owners should question NWLI mgt

    BenGrahamMan:

    I am in full agreement with your analysis. In support of your reasoning to buy back stock, I would like to mention that Berkshire Hathaway recently announced a plan to buy back its stock if the market price of the stock was not in excess of 110% of book value. NWLI is probably not equivalent to Berkshire, but we are not asking NWLI to pay 10% above its book value ($350 + $35 + $385). I reiterate my statement from a prior post, that if NWLI bought its stock back in the $130 price range it would be equivalent to earning a 60% AFTER TAX profit margin. How is NWLI ever going to accomplish that anywhere else?

    So sign me on as the first enlistee to get management to buy back its stock.
