Found this company under the insurance tag. Sell all property insurance and casualty stocks, or see your portfolio bcome a casualty! Warren Buffett is negative on the sector and that's good enough for me. Financial sector s--t has to work iits way… More

Good F-score at inclusion, cheap relative to intrinsic and to book value, good quality (high ROA)

I don't like this one as much as I do other companies -- while WRB underwrites at a profit, which is essential in a low interest rate environment, it is involved in near-commoditized businesses like P&C that have razor-thin underwriting margins, and it's very hard to obtain a competitive edge. Nevertheless the company is priced conservatively right now (a bit undervalued according to the way I calculate) and management seems to be fairly good at creating value over time, so in today's "higher-than-I'd-like" market it's a buy. If someone held a gun to my head and told me to buy something right now, I wouldn't be too upset with this one.
