No, the data at "ycharts" is "news" to me.
I did check their yearend book value per share (from 2008 to 2012) data for errors.
The errors, in general, are small, the largest relative error was less than 0.5%.
For example, BV per share for 31Dec2012:
official annual report (page 3), $114,214;
absolute error, +$520;
relative error, +0.46%.
thanks bud, seems to me at 1.5ish xs book with no div and no real buyback its pretty much fairly priced.
that chart claims the stock traded at book maybe below once, 3 times in the past 5 years. I wonder what the discount to IV was those 3 times ?
