Diamond Hill Capital Comments on Assured Guaranty Ltd

October 24, 2012 | About:

Municipal bond insurer Assured Guaranty Ltd. (AGO) reported better than expected second quarter earnings, driven by lower loss costs and strong investment returns, and repurchased 2 million of its shares at a large discount to book value. Despite strong results, the stock price continued to be volatile as investors anticipated a potential debt downgrade by Moody's scheduled to be completed by the end of October.

From Diamond Hill Capital's third quarter Select Fund Commentary.
