This is the closest a publicly traded insurance stock gets to being a franchise, along with AFLAC. It's very similar to GEICO in that it has a very low expense ratio; it has a quasi-monopoly due to its sales to unions and other organizations; and if… More

Eventually, the bigger companies such as Prudential, NY Life, NW Mutual, and AIG(plus others I am sure I missed) will crush them. I can't see them doing better than keeping up with inflation, give or take .5%

Boring insurance helps to anchor your portfolio with regular dividends and minimal volatility. This one's especially well situated.

As a former insurance actuary, I like:

(1) A business model in which the company serves identified niches for life insurance, where it costs less to acquire new business compared to competitors, providing a healthier profit margin.

(2) A strategy of reducing it's emphasis on its health insurance business, thus focusing on what it writes well - life insurance.

(3) Turning an underwriting profit which reduces TMK's need to rely fully on investment income to offset insurance losses.

(4) Strong management which owns a healthy stake in the TMK

(5) Low debt to equity (0.2), ROE = 13.6 surpasses industry, 3 year avg EPS growth surpasses industry, P/B = 1.0, P/E TTM = 7.6 , selling at 16% discount to Morningstar's recently reduced fair value.

Projected dividend is 1.4%. I think this company is a keeper.
