Dwindling revenues from small commercial firms hardest hit by the recession. No prospect of improvement.

As a provider of workers compensation insurance, Employer's Holdings, Inc.'s revenues tend to vary with the total employment dollars earned by insured parties. Thus, revenue is down and so is profits. Fortunately, I expect that peak unemployment is only 3% away (from its current level of 9%). That leaves Employer's Holdings, Inc. with a 3% future problem. Seems small compared to the problems faced by many other companies. As an insurer, EIG enjoys a variable cost structure. Fixed costs are minimal. This means earnings are not particularly cyclical. Historical average ROE is over 20% with no debt. This definitely justifies a higher price/book ratio than 1.38. Trailing P/E is 6.8 and p/e based on estimated earnings this year is 10. Last but not least, this company scores a perfect 10 stock scouter rating and a 4 CAPS rating.
