8 different metrics of growth around 10-20%,
At 10.75/share - p/e 9, peg .8, pb .8, pcf 7.9, ps .5. All this looks wonderful until I noticed the long term chart... the stock has never gone over 14. Is there a first time for this company? Seems like there might be.

Here's a company that places an emphasis on fundamentals, very conservative, and non too flashy. Has a huge emphasis on taking care of its customers, agents, and employees, and when customers are giving up on the market, agents should have no trouble bringing in new customers seeking stability.

Many investors want an investment tool that guarantees a place to put their dollars that won't decline in value. AEL does just that with their annuities.

American Equity is a growth driven company that has excellent financials and little exposure to the mortgage mess. There innovative products are extremely competitive during recessions and market down turns. AEL is in a great position to take advantage of the retiring baby boom, with there retirement Income products.

This stock is another one that is a sleeper, so you better keep it on your watch list.

stock was beaten down because of exposure to mortgage market. However, I was at the company HQ in Des Moines last week. They have ZERO exposure in the Sub-prime mortage market. Their book of mortgages have all be carefully underwritten and are seeing very little - if any default.

They had been trading around $13/share.

Additionally, with the market acting wacky, I believe this will stimulate more sales. They have also added a couple newer distribution channels that will add to their growth.

CONSISTENT GROWTH IN ANNUITY SALES, DOES NOT PANDER TO ANALYSTS BUT REPORTS FAIRLY ITS RESULTS. WILL CONTINUE STEADY EARNINGS GROWTH FOR AT LEAST 6 YEARS. ONLY PROBLEM IS EARNINGS STATEMENTS REQUIRE CLOSE STUDY AS THEY ARE COMPLEX.

The company has great financial numbers, but it has been a very slow moving stock over the past few years. I expect it to rise only about 20% over the next 4 years, while I expect the S&P to rise approximately 30%.
