Their E&S division will continue to erode profitability. Mesa Underwriters lacks underwriting discipline - currently underwriting multiple classes under ISO loss cost estimates. Increasing exposure to oil and gas classes of business in the western US at below market rates will lead to further negativity in the E&S division's combined ratio. Shock and construction defect losses in NV, CO, and AZ will eventually present themselves and at that time the underwriting drag on this company from the E&S division will move from the 9% mark currently to much worse levels. The increased market share from the low underwriting rates will not be enough to overcome the inevitable losses.

It has been a slow and rough time for insurance providers, and though SIGI insurance is no different, its recent 13% drop in share price is. That was due to several things stemming from management and not so much from real world events. This company took a one time restructuring charge in February, along with higher short term cash positions to hedge against the financial markets volatility. As i see it, this company is taking all the necessary steps to not only safeguard its investments, but also to improve its infrastructure. If thats worth a 13% drop, then im in now on the cheap and ready for clear sailing ahead.

Selective Insurance engaged in major cost cutting initiatives at the beginning of 2008 in order to "shore up" its one major vulnerability in the industry. Selective has been a historically strong performer however, in recent years the direct competitor's Expense Ratio has outperformed Selective in spite of Selective’s strong Earnings and Profitability.

even when this stock splits on Feb 20, the P/E ratio below 10 only tells me that they are working things out. If you are in currently, sell right after the split and you will come out with a 50 cent extra dividend

Small insurance company wisely letting Geico take auto policies while it goes for less risky ones.
