Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
Too many years ago to remember my most influential old boss gave me the nugget of investment advice that 'there is nothing more complex than an insurance company'. Broadly I have shared such sympathies over the resulting time period and it has probably saved me more times than it has hindered me. However in the light of this week's esure (ESUR) takeover by Bain Capital, I thought I would have a quick look at Admiral (ADM), which reported first half numbers today.
