    I would expect some downward pressure on this stock for the immediate short term, simply because the financial sector is negative on the anxiety around Omicron. Might represent a buying opportunity. Medium and long term prospects seem to be good and financials in general will get a boost on the possible interest rate hikes.

    It’s once again time to pop the champ and celebrate another profitable year! That kind you to the management team for staying focused, providing value, and returning excess capital to the shareholders! Cheers!!

    Question. Will the special dividend automatically buy additional shares?

    Just read about this company and truly like what I am reading. Hoping it pulls back a bit to start a position for long term.

    Well that's not an insignificant jump in price on the heels of yesterday's announcements. YTD this stock is in my top 3 performing holdings. It has more than made up from the slow price recovery from the pandemic. Good news keeps coming.

    I can't believe with the great quarterly dividend along with the special dividend people are not flocking to this stock?

    After today's large drop, gained it back and then some after-hours after the $4 special dividend news. Interesting timing considering the stock's performance over the last several weeks. Might mitigate some of the general downward pressure I think the market will continue to experience in the short term.

    Buy and never sell. This company is extremely well managed. Pay attention to what the management and executives do. Vito, the gc, bought shares just under $100 bc he knew this sale would go through. The company is owned by a family that controls about 40% of the outstanding shares. It is their cash generating machine and they frequently pay special dividends, usually at least once per year. They are worth many billions and you should own this company LONG TERM!

    Why is more than dividend income falling? How long does it take to recover?

    Anyone else buying this company? Good dividend track record, good liquidity, bought back shares after the drop, and trading at a relatively good discount. Post-COVID, this should be set to increase in value, and reinstate the special dividend.

    $2 special dividend during a pandemic—aside from regular quarterly dividends & buying back shares. Fantastic company.

    Do I still have time to buy shares to get the special dividend or was the last day to purchase Friday?

    Great American is the lead insurer in the Miami building collapse. Although reinsurance and excess liab polices will help mitigate fallout still big deal

    Stumbled upon this gem in the depths of the pandemic and it keeps impressing. Another great quarter along with 16$ of special divvys .
