Boring as hell. Itís like BRK with half the ROA. They acquired a steel fabricator and a funeral products company ( caskets etc). RIP.

I kind of like these guys and if it is cheap enough, I wouldnít mind owning the stock, knowing that the returns will never match BRK  or MKL.

Any Alleghaniacs out there?

Y got to 1.3x book at the end of 2019 but probably trades under book given equity market and likely underwriting performance since the end of Q3. They report next week.

I bought a little last week and itís a brand new position for me.
