    WASHINGTON, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Montpelier Re Holdings Ltd. (MRH.N: Quote, Profile, Research) filed with regulators on Monday to periodically sell up to $1 billion in common and preference shares, debt securities and other securities.
    The Bermuda-based provider of property and casualty reinsurance and insurance products said in a registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that it will use the proceeds for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions and general corporate purposes.

      Pelorus,
      The big negative in MRH is the hurricane season is here until Nov. 30......it ain't done. And there is a distinct likelihood it will be here year after year for at least the next 10 yrs...could be 20 yrs. We are in a bad hurricane cycle, and they are very predictable now. Tropical storm weather is the big culprit. I don't see how you MRH can make any money given that scenario.

      Couldn't have said it better myself. Predictability is a great thing for an insurer (or a re-insurer). Given that these events are "VERY PREDICTABLE" [emphasis added], insurers price their products accordingly

      <<"I don't see how you MRH can make any money given that scenario.">>

      Easy. It's called pricing power.

      And once this year's policies are up for renewal, guess what direction the pricing will go?

      Ps: I am sorry that you missed the ride up from the low 20s (hitting $22 and change just last week), all the way up to $26 bucks. Must suck to have missed the train; must suck even more that your hopes of Rita sticking it to MRH didn't play out as planned.

    • By increasing their rates as insurance companies always do.

    • But will they find buyers?

      Just continuing to add up Katrina losses.

      Huricane Wilma forming. And if there is one after Wilma, they will have to make up a new name as the list of names ends with Wilma.

      I know you bulls were excited over the weekend, but what you have here is a chance to get on the short side cause

        Looks as though the market found enough buyers just fine, thank you.

        Also looks as though you have a dividend payment that you'll need to be sendin' my way soon, thank you.
