Over the next few decades, Alleghany is set to become one of our nation's most admired, loved, and profitable larger insurance and holding firms along with Markel, White Moutain, and their mentor, Berkshire Hathaway. Over the last few decades the price of Alleghany has oscillated back forth around it's true value and today represents the most extreme outlying point since its inception, offering an opportunity to ride both the potential for a near term return to more common price to value ratios, and the the company's 2 decade long trend of increasing book value.

Currently trading 35% off it's all time highs, less than 90% of tangible book value, and at a 9% earnings to price ratio should make most value minded investors head's turn - just like a pretty girl with a short skirt and sexy walk. Got the image?
