I didn't even back-test this theory with the 1970's (maybe you could do that), but I'm picking dividend aristocrats/champions/whatever they're called to outperform through stagflation.

A nice strong dividend legend. Pays out great, there will always be a need for insurance, and Cincinnati Financial is definitely a seasoned vet is any economy, and has been rewarding it's shareholders year after year. It has gotten shaken up by a few tornadoes recently, but it'll soon regain it's composure and walk right through them. I like CINF long.

Dividend aristocrat with a low dividend payout ratio makes this stock a strong performer as it can obviously weather recessions and booms while continuously raising its dividend.

It's really hard to go wrong with the insurance business. If your underwriting is conservative, which CINF's is, then insurance is one of the most profitable business models in existence. Statistically speaking, there's practically no way you lose money.

I finally started a small position (50 shares) today. I picked it much lower on CAPS but there was such a glut of awesome dividend paying companies that an insurance company wasn't worth the risk, especially one so heavily invested in equities. Since the runup from 2009, most companies I follow have appreciated too much that they don't meet my criteria for a new position. CINF is still trading below book value, has an above average yield that is only 50% of FCF and they have raised it every year for 50 years. The last raise was small but I expect the increases to grow in size as the economy continues to recover and their substantial (25% of float) equities investments keep growing.

Am I missing something? 5.9% yield while the payout ratio is only 55%, and its trading under book value, and has a low P/E? It seems to good to be true

With a P/E under 11 and a yield above 5% now seems like a good time to buy this one.

Assuming the December 2008 earnings come out to 0, that is still annual EPS of $1.60. Using that number with the Graham formula, along with the current book value of $28,86, gives me a fair value of $32.23 -- so the current price of $22 gives me a margin of safety of 30%.

Granted, the current climate for financial companies is tough, but this seems to be a well-managed company. Time will tell if this is a wise choice.

CINF is an insurance company that is actually profitable from the sale of their policies, which is rare in the insurance industry. (most insurance companies make all of their profits off of the cash they invest that they hold in float) They have taken a big hit from flooding, tornados and weather issues in the Midwest and are going to take a loss this year on their underwriting. Like Berkshire Hathaway they invest their float in more risky investments to produce larger returns on the float. Which I find very attractive. CINF's investing strategy consists of stocks that provide large dividends and have potential for continuing growth. If you look at their investments over the long term the gains are very impressive. (check out there 10k) They have taken losses in the year due to heavy investmenting in the financial sector, mainly Fifth Third Bank, which has recently been hammered. It was a poor move to not sell some of these investments and cut their losses but then again many have made the same mistake. On a side note the CEO also sits on the board of Fifth Third Bank Corp. which is a tad bit fishy seeing as 27% of their stock holdings are in 5/3. Financials will inevitably bounce back within the next few years as will the rest of the market putting CINF's profits back in line with past performance. Cincinnati Financial Corp. is a solid company that has been around for 48 years and has strong experienced management. They have been increasing their dividend every year since the inception of the company. I believe the company is currently underpriced and a solid value buy in the $25 range.
