Thanks for the mention of HMN (Horace Mann). Haven't heard of them, but numbers do look good. I'll look into further.

BTW: They announced after the market today that they're having a worse than expected quarter. Might provide a significant dip for buyers..

You mentioned HCR (Manor Care) a few days ago as an alternative to HMA. Are you confident the restructuring they're undertaking will return them to 1997 and prior performance levels?

I just discovered Horace Mann a few weeks ago. It immediately went on my "Watch" list. I'm not familiar enough with it to make any comments because I haven't even read the annual report. The surface numbers are impressive though and I agree that it's worth looking at.

Did you buy RAL?
