Enstar buys insurance lines in runoff at a discount and then makes money by settling below the amount originally reserved, and through investments. It's been profitable so far. As interest rates increase insurers may expand their available lines as the additional investment income from higher rates will allow them to take a few more risks, meaning that in the medium term Enstar may find it harder to buy discontinued lines. However, the business model is such that it can remain opportunistic and doesn't need to make poor purchases to sustain itself, and should do well in the long term as long as it remains disciplined in making purchase decisions.

Great book value and EPS growth. Should be worth $200+.

Except for not paying dividends and not being in America (for transparent and easily obtained info), I really, really like this stock I just found.

Right now it only has two analysts and I thought I might have a chance to leave the first comment on this company. Anyway, the longterm chart looks great and the future estimates look great too. Maybe in the next couple years the earnings will double and the PE ratio will double. Not to be overlooked is the fact that this is a 4 star stock and a Global Gains pick.

I'll be investing real money around $77 and more if it drops to $70ish with the hopes of an easy double or better in three years. Wish me luck.

I think the people who run this company are smart. Not "MBA" smart, but "actuary" smart. Insurance claims in run-off doesn't seem like a bad industry when everyone is afraid for their jobs.

Led by a proven investor, this company (that finds ways to profit from others' folly in the reinsurance market) should do very well over the next five years.

Black bpx, using the Buffet scheme: get the cash flow from insurance policies to invest in various deals by a top notch exec. Flowers.

Seems like a good gainer for a short term investment.

I think the financial is still sane. I don't think there are going just yet, and it would be logical to be acquired by a bigger player, So unless it's going under 1$, You might make a good load of money with it. At least to day trade!!

This train is about to leave the station:

Simply put, Enstar show no signs of slowing down. First, Flowers is one of the honchos here. You might know him from Goldman Sachs fame. He's got millions in them.

Secondly, they just merged(aquired) Castlewood Holdings, another EXTREMELY profitable company in the misc financial services industry.

Also, Enstar will be putting up around 200 million to aquire Sallie Mae with Flowers.

They're gobbling up some big guns, and the numbers are pretty outstanding.
