    Declining Premiums

    If you've priced your insurance based on those rates, then it absolutely makes sense. N o-one know for sure what rates will do and NWLI is in the business of making money on insurance and not on speculating on interest rates.

    Could be a lot of reasons and you'll never know.

    Could be a fund building a big position; could be sentiment changing on interest rates; could be someone trading out of a more expensive insurer; could be a persistent seller is finished; could be some inside news on earnings or a takeover (unlikely but possible)

    I think the thing to focus on is it is an inexpensive, well run company in a market where there are fewer and fewer of these, so the price generally should go up.

    Another Good Report

    Market even recognized it and bounced when earnings came out.

    The volume has actually been good (for NWLI) in this latest uptrend the last month.

    Perhaps these 2 factors are showing the market is getting more interested in our well-run, value stock.

    NWLI hasn't gotten into trouble with their bond portfolio since I've been following it for the last 10 years. They are very diversified and conservative. I guess if it was going to happen though, it would make sense that would be with the energy companies given NWLI's Texas location. But I really, really don't think it will turn into an issue for them.

    Another good year

    I agree. Mine too. Plus, there is a reasonable chance rates finally rise this year, which would provide a tailwind for the lifeco's.

    NWLI Was up 20% last year, so much better than the market. Off to a weak start this year, but probably just following the market with some profit taking from last year's win. I think we have another market beating year in 2015.

    But good luck - hope it works out for you

    If you wait for the lawsuit settlement, you may not get a chance to buy as the price may jump on this.
