    Bank & Insurance Companies

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Why divi not supporting PPS

    I believe it is more the Ebola scare making investors think air traffic drops and hurts stocks like FLY.

    Look at stocks like DAL for example.
