52-Week High: $11.35Beta: 0.71 Price to Book: 0.77 BookValue: 14.40 Old Republic has made a new 52-week high in four of the last five trading sessions. Investors receive 71 cents annually in dividends for a yield of 6.3%. The dividend is at risk based on estimated earnings, but insiders are buying none the less. If a dividend cut was a serious concern, I would expect to see greater short interest. A highly followed stock like Old Republic is not about to be missed by the shorts. The short interest is minor and only 2.9%. Look for an entry price just under $11 to lower your risk profile. ORI Revenue Per Share TTM data by YCharts
