I don't see the downside. Stock is being bought out for $3 per share yet stock trades way under. This is just a short term trade.

Unless there is outright fraud, this is a $7 -8 nstock when the company goes into run-off and it will have to go into run-off. When financials are filed if reserves do0nt significantly increase its 2 bagger. assets are siubstantially liquid and highly rated. Reserves should have been corrected by the last huge reserve increase.

Impairement of good will and credit rating drop not significant. This company cant operate mand will have to sell or run-off liabilities.

Either bankrupt or a double-bagger. I wonder what size could be a reserves write-down to justify this drop. My calculation shows the stock is traded as if the company was hit with half a billion actuarial loss. Sweetest moment to enter around early October 2013. 13.

If you can pay significantly less than BV for a piece of a company that grows BV at 12% to 16% per year, you'll eventually do very well.

Niche insurance play - Huurican Irene clobbered this one, but I'm a buyer of Tower at current levels; well-managed company with high historical ROIC trading near bottom of both its own and peer group comparisons - buyer around $20

Currently oversold, trading at very attractive price multiples:
P/FCF: <9x
P/S: <0.7x
P/TBV: <1.4x
Fwd P/E: <8x

In addition to this you have founder and CEO, Michael Lee holding almost 10% of the company. While you wait for the market to fully recognize TWGP's value, you receive a 2% dividend that has grown at an average of >30% per year and still maintains a low payout ratio of under 15%.

This company is way undervalued. When looking at the average trailing 5 year P/E of 14, the EPS of 2.45 and an est.5 year growth rate of 19.67%, this stock is worth 14 x 2.45 x 1.1967^5 = 84 dollars in 5 years from now. When your looking for an annual return of >20%, this is your stock (84 / 2,5 = 33,6), current price is way undervalued given the price/book ratio of 0.96, the 0.47 PEG ratio and a steady growing dividend %.
Company's management effectiveness is way better than the industrial average! Insiders holdership of 8% is a extra plus. I'm in!

Defensive stock that has underperformed over the last year due to adverse loss anticipation. Investors typically overestimate bad news which creates buying opportunities. Yield is a plus, but not a dividend leader. Price is below book despite earnings growth.
