    Earnings & Rates

    Earnings okay. Quote from management - "Darn those insured who keep dying!!".

    MET, PRU, HIG, LNC, PFG, PL, etc. all up big with the jump in rates.

    NWLI bringing up the rear as usual.

    • earnings were fine. actually really fine if you exclude the abnormal deaths. hopefully not a trend. if this can continue (ex the deaths) we could be seeing 30 dollars of earnings in 2014. 0.5x book ex AOCI is too cheap.

      all the names you mention are focused on running companies to generate the best returns for shareholders. It appears management is not capable of running a business to maximize returns. at the point this changes, the stock will go up 100 dollars.

      i bet some frustrated longs are hoping that there is one more person to die. but that's not a nice way of thinking about it.

      enjoy the nice safe returns. your value is compounding, you might just not see it.
