Radian Group: Another Near-Term Capital Gain Prospect Market-Makers See As Underpriced

Comparisons with RDN are from scores of Property-Casualty insurance providers viewed continually by institutional investors as capital gain prospects. Values are based on how market professionals protect their own capital, put at risk in order to fill multi-million-$ trade orders placed by institutions managing multi-billion-$ portfolios. Those client trade orders must be executed quickly and quietly or run the risk of being front-run by hordes of opportunists. Often market-makers must create short positions on their books. But they lay off the risk of rising prices on those shorts to other speculator-pros, all for a cost, in separate but related markets for derivatives. What the cost of that protection is, and how it is provided tells what the involved, well-informed players think coming prices can be. Implied price-range forecasts.
