    clean opinion from auditors. BV increased from 2010 to $351.27. Current price of $138.12 is 39% of Book Value. If price to book was 60%, price would revert to $210.75.

    • Gave a quick look through and seems fine.

      Interested to see what they say in their Letter to Shareholders in their annual report.

      From 2010:

      "One of the things that we cannot control is the sentiment of financial
      markets and more specifically how market participants view the value
      of National Western. We can certainly work hard to do our best to
      influence the perception of investors. Prior to the financial crisis of the
      past few years, the market’s assessment of our worth moved lockstep
      with our book value per share. As we have communicated in the past,
      our strategy is focused on building up the intrinsic value of the Company
      by reinvesting in our core businesses, maintaining a rock-solid balance
      sheet, building upon our reputation for prudent financial management
      philosophies and execution, and delivering consistent and profitable
      growth. Although there are larger paradigm factors contributing to the
      dislocation between the publicly traded price per share and our intrinsic
      worth as measured by the book value per share, we believe that the
      current period is an aberration that can be corrected by continuing to do
      the right things which create future value over the long-term ultimately
      enhancing shareholder value."
