Some Insurance for Your Stock Portfolio

Here's a five-year comparative price-per-share price chart on both AON and WSH. It appears that WSH is the best priced at the current moment. AON Chart AON data by YCharts

Since the major insurance brokerage firms like WSH have their revenue linked to the value of the contracts they negotiate for clients, if premium prices rise they receive a proportionate raise in revenue.

My take is to watch all three of them, including MMC, which pays a 2.7% yield-to-price and is selling for around 14 times forward earnings. If you can pick up shares close to the Oct. 24 or Oct. 25 intraday lows you'll begin collecting some sweet yields and be better positioned for upside potential.
