The Insurance Sector continues to struggle
Over the last month the ASX200 has rallied 2.4% but the insurance sector slipped 0.4%, this comes as the local bourse continues to be nerved by future margins. Insurance companies clearly carry an inherent risk by the nature of their business and when badly managed, as we have witnessed over recent years by QBE, can be a treacherous place to invest. Hence personally, I want to see real value before investing in this vulnerable sector. Overall I believe earnings risks to the sector are to the downside and stock prices are being supported by the almost panic chase for yield. Interestingly I have very different technical views on the main stocks in the sector. This sector, I believe is no longer an exciting place to be invested, I much prefer the REIT’s.
