    Excellent... worth over $14/sh

    This management team is very smart. The financials are proof in the pudding. Net income is $17.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013, compared to net income of $7.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the same period in 2012.
    Cash flow from operations is very strong. I love the share retirement AND the strong dividend!
    I personally am very glad that UVE is still undiscovered. These fundamentals put the intrinsic value of UVE over $14/sh.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • If management is so smart why have they been selling the stock? Look at insider trades last couple of months.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • This is my best performing small cap stock. Currently up 124% on current share price. $12 sounds like music to my ears. I think it will take some time to reach that level, but until then, I will collect a nice divvy. They should raise the dividend due to the strong cash per share.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I think the EPS really are about .50 per share, if you take into consideration that they repurchased 7 million shares and the reduction from last year to this year, is only about 3 million q 2012 to q 2013, net income per share is really .50 if you take that into consideration, and if so its worth based on your analysys at least 16!

      • you are assuming that they are going to earning .50 a share every quarter which is completely unrealistic... they need the cash on hand so if a massive hurricane hits the southeast the company isn't wiped out.... I think people need to not get ahead of themselves things are good right now but insurance companies are in place for when catastrophe hits.... when it does the company may not operate at a profit for a quarter or 2... and cash will be used....
