AIG, OneBeacon Resist Stock-Market Slump

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- More than three-quarters of insurance-company shares have fallen in the past week. Here are five that have risen.

5. Axis Capital Holdings (AXS - Get Report) is a Bermuda-based specialty insurer and reinsurer.

Price Rise: 3.5%

Financial Fundamentals: Solid financials but with disappointing net income. Operating return on average equity of 15.5%, compared with the peer average 10.4%. Debt-to-capital ratio, 8.32%; average, 14.3%. Net income, 2.8% of total revenue; average, 3.5%.

Market Indicators: A price-to-earnings ratio of 4, which is low, and an analysts' consensus price target that's 19.5% below the current price indicate this is a cheap stock.

News: Moody's affirmed its ratings with a "stable" outlook Wednesday.
