    Same old song same old dance...

    Sandy will result in higher premiums, translating to favorable underwriting margins, where the insurance industry is already experiencing a nice upward trend as of late (it's about time). Let's not forget the disaster alone will almost act as a economic stimulus to the northeast, forcing money to be spent on rebuilding by various entities.

    I guess we will have to wait until UFCS's next press release for a better tally on Sandy's damage; I highly doubt the potential damage warranted UFCS's decline from 26ish to 18ish range (nearly a $170's mil drop in mkt cap value); it appears today's investors are seeing the tremendous value gap, bidding the shares to 19.65 as of this typing, an increase of approximately $27 mil in mkt cap value since yesterday.

    Anyways, below is my last post:
