ITIC actually traded today. Yahoo indicates the last trade was on March 6.
I think we all ought to chip in and buy pj some tonic to wake him up and get him active after his winter hibernation.
I regret to say that I recently sold off the last of my Bs, a little under 3,000. I firmly believe that they're worth around 4,000. But I think I'm getting much deeper discounts on other stocks right now. (I'm curious to see whether a "Barron's run-up" is coming this week. But I'm a very poor trader, I'd probably find a way to lose money playing it.)
The BRKA board is a strange place. There are a lot of copycat IDs, and most of the traffic seems to be personal feuding. I rarely post there. PJ is not me, he is as real as you are. I don't think I can offer any proof of that. (To either of you.)
I thought your posts were enigmatic before. Now you are posting in Chinese, Korean or Japanese. It will be very hard to distill the essence of your messages. I guess I will have to subscribe to an online dictionary. I do know an old guy from North Korea who speaks Korean, Chinese and Japanese. Maybe I can get him to translate after you master the language. Do you plan to abandon English entirely?
Oh, and yes I believe that ITIC is more than 25% undervalued at $42.50. Title insurance is unpopular for reasons that I think are not permanent. In a normal sector, any company that could pay out $25-$30 in cash and earned $5, would rarely be priced below $75 and might often bring $100 or more. My simple-minded strategy is to keep earnings $5 a share and wait for the market to relax about title insurance. It will probably take years.
tsar, to see something more informative than ???'s--at least, this worked in Windows XP Home--it may be necessary to go into the control panel, find Regional and Language Options, select the languages tab, and then check Install files for East Asian languages, followed by Apply.
