    I use a computer search tool to find companies with very consistently rising earnings.

    After finding 10 or 15 companies of this sort I evaluate them by hand. ITIC is the only insurance company on the list. There are quite a few banks, some manuafacturers, a restaurant, an oil services company etc. It seemed to me that ITIC, being financial, was more similar to banks than the other companies. Two of the bank stocks had EPS growth almost identical to ITIC and similar P/E so I bought those too.

    I expect the previously existing trend of rising stock price with all three to continue at exactly the same rate for at least another year. I have no idea whether my analysis actually "works". So I buy the stocks and see what happens. Time will tell.
