They have ubiquity andseemingly a very strong brand attachment with their offering. I think that there’sreally something there on the services side. But, when they’re capping margins to make their prices more accessible, that only gives themso much cash to operate with. You see the precedent that Apple has set withcommanding really good margins andcreating a cash cow business with their iPhone segment. I worry that Xiaomimight struggle to do that, particularly because services is such a tiny portion of the overall business. If that starts to change, then I think the interest level for me is a little higher.

Warren Buffett&s;s portfolio of stocks at Berkshire Hathaway has always contained a good number of insurance stocks. He likes them, always has.

Omaha&s;s most-famous investor started with his purchase of National Indemnity Company way back in 1967 and has continued since then with famous old names like GEICO and General Re, among many others.

If we imitate his methods, could we find success?

There&s;s no telling, but… one of the first steps in finding value is to see if the stock is trading at a low price/earnings ratio and if it can be purchased at a discount to book value.

Here are four insurance stocks that may fit as the type of value situation sought under the Buffett-like criteria he learned from Benjamin Graham:

&l;strong&g;AEGON N.V.&l;/strong&g; is a life insurance company based in the Netherlands and which trades on the New York Stock Exchange. With a price/earnings ratio of 5.4 and now priced at half its book value, it definitely looks like a value stock. The concern would be debt: There&s;s more of that than equity.

Economic growth worldwide and Middle Eastern production cuts have resulted in a more than doubling of crude oil prices since early 2016; if they remain near current levels or head higher, now could be the perfect time to add Hess Corp.
