Check out the 1/10/2000 issue, pages 150-151.

FAF is the featured stock for the insurance industry, in the annual "Platinum List", a list of the best-performing large companies in the U.S.

The article describes FAF's work to branch out from title insurance and become more of a one-stop shop for higher-margin information services needed by mortgage lenders for closing.

"Title insurance competitors, such as Chicago Title and LandAmerica Financial, are trying to play catch up. But it may be too late. The Kennedys, says Charles Gunther, vice president of research at First Security Van Kasper in San Francisco, 'are miles ahead of everybody else.' "
