A Grand Adventure Dividend Holding:http://boards.fool.com/the-grand-adventure-121197.aspx
I picked this stock because it is rated 10 by Stockscouter, it has a dividend and a beta computed by Yahoo Finance of more than 1.
"Well run, ethical, and one of the best places to work which equals employee loyalty"This is something they tell about themelves but in reality they are opposite.I would agree its well run (well run is opposite to best place to work. This is one of the worst place to work). They are highly unethical stingy and conservative. In 2008 they picked up thrash once a week from their employees cubicle Vs picking up every evening pre 2008. They cut free cofee to their employees. They lay off people in thousands at their will when there is a slight economy downturn (After september 11 2001 and after 2008). They count every single penny they spend and manage their financials very good and thats why I am highly optimistic about this company. we can expect this stock to go up $70 and beyondThey have very good product lines and are well established in India, China where insurance and Retirement investing is pretty new concept. They also have a good presence in UK , Australia and South America.
Well run, ethical, and one of the best places to work which equals employee loyalty. It also does not hurt that have an excellent product line.

its done it before it will do it againThey have a excelent product line that is needed
I think it's overvalued right now.. Company is weak.
Market price is at a large discount to analyst estimates
Insurers are going to lose big time
Solid conservative management, huge upside performance potential in the industry (retirement investments).
Good value compared to industry.
Beaten down considerably by market losses and the the book value numbers they divulged in their latest report. The book value will go back up to 15-17 according to their CEO in the next quarter or two.They actually made a profit this quarter but still got decimated. I expect the stock to go back up in the 20-24 range within 6 months.
Beaten down. There is still some downside risk left, but looking into a 2-3 year timeframe, PFG offers some excellent upside potential. It is a well run company, but unfortunately has not been imune from the broader financial issues we've seen as of late.

Principal Financial currently under $20? Unreal... another quality financial institution brought down with irrational panic... But that also means another quality equity is on sale. I would start buying with both hands and I'll see you at $40+ in 18-24 months!
Strong fundamental financial services company with plenty of capital. Conservative approach to expansion and small exposure to subprime lending along with willingness to hunker down and weather the recent storm bodes well for stock price recovery in next 1-5 years, sooner if global economic downward spiral lessens in next few months.
The Press is scaring everybody this is a solid company that is very conservative. The press just needs to shut up and let the country start thinking about better days and take there mind away from the situation at hand. Come on everybody this is the United States of America quit being passive and reserved. Lets start going in the other direction. Are you with me Hoo Raa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
