Annual Dividend: 40 centsDividend Yield: 8.5% (forward annual) Price-to-Book: 1.90 Recent developments: Earlier this week, Universal Insurance declared its latest dividend, payable on July 15 to shareholders of record on June 17. On May 10, Universal Insurance said it had first-quarter net income of $8.3 million, or 21 cents a share, down from a year-ago profit of $12.4 million, or 31 cents a share. The company attributed the decline to continuing pressure on operating results because of state-mandated wind-mitigation credits and higher reinsurance costs. While Universal Insurance's P/E ratio trailing 12 months is slightly above other nonlife insurance companies, it trades at a discount on a price-to-book basis.
