      MRH is on track to buy back 10% of their outstanding shares this year.

    • So why is the stock down ? And why the insider selling recently ?

        Perhaps MRH is down because it's the old sell on the news-wasn't it selling at a new 5 year high yesterday prior to earnings?

        Personally I believe it's just a hold at current prices but I believe that's true of most stocks. I'd love to buy back some shares I sold between 23-25 but only if I could buy at a 20% discount to book value. As I've said before-I traded into SYA and AIG because they both trade at 40% plus discounts to book. AIG has done rather well but SYA is just keeping up with the market.

        Note --AIG is currently the largest holding in my Roth IRA.
