Looks like a decent quarter for Progressive.

Progressive is currently trading at over 2x book value. I doubt that a stand-alone GEICO would trade at a lower valuation. Not that I would pay 2x book for Progressive. But it is a company I've had on my watch list for a couple of years having missed a great opportunity to take a position during the depths of the financial crisis.

$1 special dividend announced today:

The special dividend does not impact the annual variable dividend. Progressive has a very smart dividend policy. I think more companies can and should declare large special dividends prior to the end of 2012 if there is excess capital available.

The next time Progressive gets cheap, I won't be stupid enough to pass on it again.
