GNW continues to impress on a business level and reward investors who believe in the company's resurgence. After shedding 75% of their value in two years (2010-2012), shares of GNW hovered under the $6 level for most of 2012 before the precipitous rise they've enjoyed back to the $10 level. The gain in generation of value comes as no surprise - the company is buoyed by strong new leadership (CEO McInerney), a strengthening balance sheet and deleveraging from underperforming assets, and a robustly rebounding housing sector. The company is beginning to click on all cylinders, as noted in their most recent earnings report. Margins are once again increasing and revenues and bottom-line profits were both stronger than anticipated. Finally, the stock is trading at a near 65% discount to its tangible asset book value, or liquidation value. With any semblance of a continued recovery in the housing market, GNW has perhaps chance for more upward mobility than any other stock on this list.
