Posted on the 05 October 2011 by Divstkforcomman @DivStkForComMan
Would you like to invest in shares of a company which pays a dividend of $0.40 per share with a current yield of 6.18%? How about a company which has paid a consistent dividend since June 18th, 1990 with six stock splits since May 18th, 1992? OK, great. Then look no further than Cincinnati Financial Corporation, stock ticker CINF. Cincinnati Financial Corporation engages in property casualty insurance in which they market through independent insurance agents in 39 states. CINF owns three subsidiaries 1) The Cincinnati Insurance Company 2) CSU Producer Resources Inc., and 3) CFC Investment Company and currently operates in five segments:
  • Commercial lines property casualty insurance
  • Personal lines property casualty insurance
  • Excess and surplus lines property casualty insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Investments
CINF's standard market property casualty insurance group includes two subsidiaries:
  • The Cincinnati Casualty Company
  • The Cincinnati Indemnity Company
These subsidiaries write a range of business, homeowner and auto policies. Other subsidiaries of The Cincinnati Insurance Company include the Cincinnati Life Insurance Company and the Cincinnati Specialty Underwriters Insurance Company. As you can see they are loaded with growth potential and pay you to purchase their stock.
CINF is a strong dividend aristocrat. They pay a healthy quarterly dividend and there will always be a need for insurance! Cincinnati Financial is definitely a seasoned vet is any economy, and has been rewarding their shareholders year after year after year. My personal opinion is that it is hard to go against the insurance business. If one's underwriting is conservative, which CINF's is, then insurance is one of the most profitable business models in existence.
CINF lost 3.7% in their stock price during the past 12 months. CINF has a market cap of $4.2 billion, P/E ratio of 14.1 and total debt/equity ratio of 0.17. More and more reasons to invest in this solid company. CINF should outperform the market even during the current market volatility.
