Wilbur Ross: Bullish On Insurance Stocks
Wilbur Ross mentioned recently his bullishness on insurance stocks:
"There are deep value opportunities in insurance stocks, which were beaten down because of their exposure to the subprime crisis, annuities, and commercial real estate. I won’t name names, but some well-managed life insurance and fire and casualty companies will come through this stronger. They used to trade at one or two times book value but now trade at three-quarters book" Wilbur Ross, Fortune
