what do the prospects for this company look like in 6-12 mos? Being in real estate I know what's happening in the market and that can't bode well for title insurers... possibly looking to short.
how's the management and reputation of this company?
I think ITIC is likely to have a year or two of very poor earnings when the real estate boom dries up. That's what happened to ITIC when the last big real estate boom tanked ca. 1991. And a lot of ITIC's highest-margin earnings come from refi (I believe), so assuming the rising-rate environment continues, that will cost them earnings too.
Hope that helps. I can't say what you should do, but it would be great to have a regular short poster on the board here.
now volume has screamed past 2000 sh.!
We're forming a convoluted triple hammerhead inverted cobra snake formation, perfect for shorting, if we can get just one more trade at 42.75....
