2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Business Description

Industry: Insurance » Insurance - Diversified
Compare:BRK.A, ALIZF, AXAHY, ZFSVF, AIZ » details
Kemper Corp was incorporated in Delaware in 1990 The Company, through its subsidiaries, serves the basic financial needs of individuals, families and small businesses by providing property and casualty insurance, life and health insurance, and automobile finance services. The Company conducts its continuing operations through four operating segments: Kemper Preferred (Preferred), Unitrin Specialty (Specialty), Unitrin Direct (Direct) and Life and Health Insurance. Fireside Bank, reported in discontinued operations, is in the final stages of voluntary liquidation. The Company's operations are conducted solely in the United States. The Company's property and casualty insurance business operations are conducted primarily through the Preferred, Specialty, and Direct segments. In addition, the Life and Health Insurance segment's career agents also sell property insurance to its customers. Collectively, these segments provide automobile, homeowners, renters, fire, and other types of property and casualty insurance to individuals and commercial automobile insurance to businesses. Property insurance indemnifies an insured with an interest in physical property for loss of, or damage to, such property or the loss of its income-producing abilities. Casualty insurance primarily covers liability for damage to property of, or injury to, a person or entity other than the insured. In most cases casualty insurance also obligates the insurance company to provide a defense for the insured in litigation arising out of events covered by the policy. Preferred, based in Jacksonville, Florida, conducts business in 38 states and the District of Columbia. The Company's Preferred segments primarily sells preferred and standard risk automobile and homeowners insurance. Specialty, based in Dallas, Texas, conducts business in 21 states, principally in the southwest and western United States. Specialty provides personal and commercial automobile insurance to value-minded consumers who have had difficulty obtaining standard or preferred risk insurance, usually because of their driving records, claims experience or premium payment history. The Company's Direct segments, based in Chicago, Illinois, markets personal automobile, homeowners and renters insurance through a variety of direct-to-consumer websites, including its own websites, marketing partners, employer and other affinity-sponsored relationships.
