Top NASDAQ:NWLI Bull/Bear Pitches

The best Bull and Bear pitches based on recency and number of recommendations.

Seanickson (< 20)
Submitted August 12, 2011

Trading at less than half of its tangible book value, PE of about 8.5. 2Q income fell a bit but even if that level of earnings holds, stock is still trading at less than 10 P/E. Doing very well considering the low interest rate environment.

Total management play.

Terrible ROE, which could be fixed, but management doesn't care. One could argue this is a pure life insurance play -- not on the business -- but on the life of the Chairman of the Board.

Maybe, just maybe, his retirement from the board might result in better capital allocation. Until then, this thing will stay depressed. This is a stock you'd have to be comfortable holding for a really long time with average returns. Just imagine if the $40+ in EPS last year were paid out in a dividend. Drool.
