That answer is simple....Jack Byrne (who recently passed away). He was an insurance leader and visionary and an eloquent speaker. He actually embraced Wall St and made fortunes for his investors.
NWLI has all kinds of good qualities, but it does not have a Jack Byrne. It is really that simple.
Look up John Byrne on wiki for more info...
Says you're all a bunch of bagholders. This POS is down 10 points and falling fast while management laughs out loud at the minority shareholders.
Dow at an all-time high. NWLI still light-years away from an all-time high.
Must be a bad quarter coming and the market knows. Ain't fair, is it?
Oh well, you always have management to help...oh wait, I think not!!
Sentiment: Strong Sell
BFD. How about the last 5 years vs S&P?
Sorry you took it that way.
Yes, I'm extremely frustrated with what has been going on with this company, namely ignoring the fact that they are a public company and that the shareholders are constituents just like the BOD, management, employees, and policyholders.
Add value and be thoughtful and respectful? I'm trying to stir people into action to get this company to do something, anything, to benefit shareholders. I have analyzed this company as much as anyone here and I have contributed my thoughts and opinions just like everyone else.
Some here like myself are private investors - this is our own blood, sweat, and tears cash invested in this company. We talk to the company but they don't listen and voting no doesn't get us too far. Others are institutional and can have much more sway with how things play out. Being patient as a money manager is a whole different ballgame.
One day doesn't make a market either. But when you're company's stock is down in an up market for the last 3-4 years it really is a clear signal that something is wrong.
And btw, who the heck do you think you are to tell me to be thoughtful and respectful? I'll post my ideas here like everyone else.
Dow up 2%.
Treasury yields up big.
Other life companies up 2-4%.
And NWLI is down. Those of you who are money managers - how can you justify holding this worthless company.
And why aren't you trying to bring about change here?
Don't YOU have the fiduciary responsibility to your clients? Do they know you have an investment in a small, illiquid company which refuses to do anything for its shareholders?
we keep this board to focusing on S3 instead of
other issues? Geez, I don't need either a lesson in
investment style or gun control (where the real issue is
whether parents can control their own kids as opposed to
blaming the gov't).

AK Steel Specialty Steel Plants
Receive Flawless QS-9000 Audits
Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 27, 2000--AK Steel (NYSE:AKS - news)
said today that it received a flawless report from its
most recent third-party, independent QS-9000 quality
surveillance audit conducted at each of its specialty steel
plants. The audits are conducted every six months as a
requirement for maintaining QS-9000 certification, an arduous
quality improvement system developed by the U.S.
automotive industry. The QS-9000 system incorporates
automotive-specific requirements beyond those of ISO-9002, the
international quality registration system.
quality surveillance audit, conducted by Lloyd's Register
Quality Assurance, was the first perfect audit since the
specialty plants achieved the rigorous quality
certification in 1996 when they achieved ISO-9002 registration.
The plants audited were in Butler, Pennsylvania; and
Coshocton, Mansfield and Zanesville, Ohio. AK Steel's
specialty steel (stainless and electrical) plants became in
1998 the first full-line specialty steel plants in the
U.S. to earn QS-9000. AK Steel's carbon steel plants
achieved QS-9000 in 1996.
QS-9000 is a daunting task, we believe maintaining
certification may, in fact, be more strenuous,'' said Richard
M. Wardrop, Jr., chairman and chief executive
officer of AK Steel. ``We are delighted our focus on
continual improvement and conformance to these rigorous and
ever-higher standards continues to underline our unwavering
commitment to quality. In particular we are pleased that,
despite a workforce transition due to a temporary labor
dispute, we received a perfect score at the Mansfield
Works. That is an authentication of the durability and
accuracy of our QS-9000 procedures,'' he said.

some land in good ol' Florida for you! You, like many
others, are confusing a tech mania with investment
