    They are spinning off the diagnostics company. So people who own shares of AMBS will be receiving shares of the new company. Just like what liberty shareholders will get when they spin off Sirius. I'm hoping 1 share of the new company for every 10 shares I own of AMBS.

  • Any word on the initiative that will require cameras in cars? I thought this is supposed to be passed by the end of the year. Maybe that's why this stock closed green today, because it could really pop if this is passed. Hopefully the MM's took it down today just one last time.

    You should be a psychologist. That is exactly what has been running through my brain. Either way, I have told myself not to get trigger happy. This is like a wild west showdown. If it falls being forced to hold isn't such a bad thing. Cash on hand will make it rise again. Too attractive to others.

    Could that have been somebody taking a huge short pos?

  • All of the advantages insurance companies have had in the past with minimal pay outs have been stripped by Governors and they are REQUIRED to take homeowners words for losses. The insurance companies are getting a taste of their own medicine and it is bitter.

    Deductibles thrown out... costs Allstate more $$$
    Premiums don't need to be paid, but policies still honored... Allstate loses more$$$
    Business' water damage covered... costs Allstate more $$$
    wind and plenty of trees and power poles completely destroyed homes... costing Allstate more $$$
    Ten's of thousands of cars, boats, RV's destroyed... costing Allstate more $$$
    Policies can't be cancelled..... costs Allstate more $$$
    Another storm is on the way... will costs Allstate more$$$
    Allstate must now take insureds word for losses... will costs Allstate more $$$

    There are a lot of shrewd east coasters that will take full advantage of these gifts given to them and then some. Plus, they will be able to tie this next storm into Sandy as well, compounding the damages for Allstate that they are now LEGALLY REQUIRED TO HONOR!

    Plus, the hundreds of millions that will be spent on attorneys fees from lawsuits that will be filed by the hundreds daily.

    Why would you want to invest in a train wreck when you have all the facts right in front of you before the wreck occurs? And, why would you want to hold, when those same facts are right in front of you?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • New York regulator changes insurance rules to help Sandy victims
    ReutersReuters – 16 hours ago

    (Reuters) - Insurers that cover New York residents whose homes suffered damage from the superstorm Sandy are required to accept homeowners' documentation of losses rather than send inspectors to survey the damage, a state regulator said on Monday.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo directed the state's Department of Financial Services to issue the order so that residents will be able to discard debris before a second storm hits the region later this week.

    The state also imposed a 30-day moratorium on canceling or terminating insurance policies for homes and small businesses, even if the policy-holders do not pay premiums.

    "We are acting to preserve homeowners' insurance rights when much is beyond their control," Cuomo said in a statement. "They have suffered enough and should not be hurt further by red tape or technicalities."

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Other governors will soon adopt this rule that will cost Allstate substantially more. Wow, they are REQUIRED to accept homeowners claims. THAT LEAVES ZERO NEGOTIATING AND WIGGLE ROOM FOR ALLSTATE. Additionally, they can't cancel or terminate policies even if they haven't paid their premium. So they will be millions of people now not paying, while forcing the insurance companies not to cancel their policies and take the insurers word for their losses? Boy, when the election is over and the street digests this, this is going to pull Allstate down another 10% if not more. Plus, another storm is on the way and, did I mention Allstate can't cancel and have to take the insurers word for damages, while paying NO deductible and can stop paying their premiums and they are still covered. What a deal for the homeowners,business owners, car owners.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    But, businesses are covered for water damage. There are plenty of businesses along the North Eastern shore. Also they are covered for revenue lost during the interruption of their business too. They won't be open anytime for business and the bill will goes up every minute. This alone will be in the hundreds of millions. Lot's of people are over looking these two key issues. NY governor has also thrown out the deductibles that need to be met, that will also cause Allstate greater payouts. All other governors will soon follow. Costing Allstate even more $$$. These are 3 huge issues that haven't really been discussed/released in full detail to the public.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Are Allstate Shares a Sell in the Face of Hurricane Sandy?
    By Martin Armstrong | More Articles
    November 03, 2012

    With shares of The Allstate Corporation (NYSE:ALL) at $40.15 per share during Monday’s stock market closure due to Hurricane Sandy, is ALL a BUY, a WAIT and SEE, or a STAY AWAY?

    Let’s analyze the stock with the relevant sections of our CHEAT SHEET investing framework:

    4 of 4

    C = Catalyst for the Stock’s Movement

    Allstate stock is currently at the mercy of the most volatile and unpredictable of all forces: Mother Nature. Hurricane Sandy is barreling towards major Eastern cities like New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, threatening to wreak havoc and billions of dollars of damage.

    If the destruction measures up to the hype and substantial damage is inflicted on homes, businesses, and cars across the East Coast, expensive claims could begin raining down on Allstate in the months following the storm, a possibility that will very likely effect investor behavior.

    Additionally, the insurer is set to announce its third-quarter earnings on Wednesday, October 31, and Wall Street analysts are expecting big things from the nation’s largest insurance provider, including a sevenfold rise in actual earnings from the same quarter one year ago. If Allstate meets or beats the lofty expectations, its stock could be rewarded by a handsome boost. Yet, missing those projections could send investors running for the hills.

    T = Technicals on the Stock Chart are Strong

    As of October 29, 2012, the stock price is 2.16 percent below its 20Day Simple Moving Average; 1.42 percent above the 50 Day SMA; and 16.53 percent above the 200 Day SMA. Since the beginning of 2012 the stock price has been in a healthy upward trend and is up 49.37 percent year-to-date and up 48.92 percent year over year.

    E = Earnings Are Generally Increasing Quarter over Quarter

    Allstate’s earnings have increased for the most part over the last four quarters. The most recent quarterly number of 86 cents per share showed a drop-off from the previous quarter’s $1.53 per share, but the previous three quarters had all enjoyed increases in EPS and the most recent quarter’s mark still represented a massive improvement from the year previous, when net losses of $1.19 were suffered.

    It can’t be overlooked that Allstate’s earnings have beaten analysts’ expectations and revenue has increased steadily in each of the last four quarters.

    Since earnings are definitely increasing in the right direction quarter-over-quarter, the stock is within our risk portfolio.

    E = Excellent Relative Performance to Peers is NOT Demonstrated

    Many investors favor Return on Equity as a key metric to how well the company is operating. Allstate’s operational performance is towards the back of the pack when compared to peer companies. ALL has an ROE of 10.87 percent while rivals Travelers Companies (NYSE:TRV) and Progressive Corp. (NYSE:PGR) come in around or slightly above that at 10.83 percent and 14.71 percent, respectively. American International Group (NYSE:AIG) is even further ahead with an ROE of 21.58 percent.

    Operating margins are also critical for stock evaluation. Allstate doesn’t distinguish itself from the competition here, either, with a margin of 8.94 percent compared to 7.37 percent for AIG, 8.14 percent for Progressive, and 14.17 percent for Travelers.

    T = Trends Affecting the Industry in which the Company Operates are Currently Difficult to Predict

    The damage done by natural disasters and the resultant effect on insurance companies like Allstate are notoriously difficult to anticipate. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina dealt out devastating damages that reached $105 billion and sent Allstate shares falling from $58.27 per share to $54.53 per share in the month following the destruction. However, in contrast, 2003’s Hurricane Isabel, which delivered far more modest damages of $3.6 billion, actually drove up Allstate stock during the month following the storm.

    Conclusion

    Some analysts are already predicting that Sandy will lean more towards the Isabel side of the spectrum, and that associated costs for insurance companies like Allstate will be manageable. Still, Allstate has homeowners insurance exposure of 13.8 percent to Hurricane Sandy, and auto insurance exposure of 15.5 percent, and it seems too soon to declare the impending claims as nothing to worry about.

    Also, while the hugely optimistic expectations for Allstate’s earnings release later this week sound nice, they leave the company’s stock ripe for a fall if somehow earnings fail to meet their projected levels.

    All this considered, the potential cons for Allstate stock seem to outweigh any pros. It looks like for now Allstate is a STAY AWAY based on the key metrics above.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
