Company Description

Why We Like It:
Many of the insurance stocks have been showing relative strength thanks to strong earnings results. HIG reported a few days ago and bested estimates by 10 cents a share. Now the stock is at a 52-week high. I am suggesting small bullish positions now at current levels. However, I do think patient traders will probably be able to buy HIG on a dip at $28.50 soon so consider waiting for the dip as HIG fills the gap from Friday morning. The early 2011 high near $31.00 could be potential resistance but we're aiming higher. Keep in mind this is a multi-week trade so we'll need patience for the trend to play out for us.

I would start this trade with small positions to limit our risk.

Suggested Position: buy HIG stock @ (the open)
