    wow, under-performance is amazing

    while we are all excited by the increase since 150 the under-performance is pretty remarkable. it's very clear to me that management does not view stock performance as a measure of success. It's also clear to me that they don't view book value growth as a measure of success either.

    we still like the company and the conservative nature but it's been a pretty subpar investment. to view it any other way.

    we laugh at 3rd avenue selling but if they flipped this into any other insurer they made a great trade.

    it's also sad that investors are hoping for the ceo/founder to die as a potential catalyst. especially for one that has done a pretty good job in several key aspects of his job. frankly, if he had bought back shares in 2012 and early 2013 he would be considered a top CEO given the book value increase.
