Cincinnati Financial Corp (NASDAQ:CINF) is a holding company managing its business through its subsidiaries. It markets Commercial lines property casualty insurance, Personal lines property casualty insurance, Life insurance and Investments through insurance agencies in 32 states. The company has been around almost half a century and raises its dividend every year. The stock trades below book value.

At the current price of just under $34, the dividend is over 5½%. The P/E is difficult to assess because earnings are in a downtrend short term, but should be ok longterm. The 52 week high was $34.33 and the low was $25.25.

One concern that has been noted elsewhere is that 27% of the company's portfolio is invested in Fifth Third Bank Corp, which has not been a good investment lately. The CEO of CINF is on the board of directors of Fifth Third.
