    I'm sort of surprised at the drop - earnings were down for two reasons
    1) japan exchange rate (in yen earnings were up 4.3%)
    2) The actually more important one - earnings from investments were down by more than earnings were downie if they had the same 0.28/share investment income earnings would have risen...... HOWEVER they had about $2.50 per share in unrealized investment gains last QUARTER(ie 1 billion total increase in unrealized gains) the earnings of 1.78/share. Book value per share is up over 10% in one quarter. that is astounding! And the stock is trading down????

    Mr. Market doesn't always give rational offers. He just always gives offers. If it's a bargain to you, buy it.


    I just wrote some cash covered puts at $60 and hope to get assigned.
