On CAPS, 95% of the 541 members who have rated Chubb believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

Just last week, one of those Fools, Sweepback, succinctly summed up the Chubb bull case for our community:

Strong management commitment to returning profits to shareholders, through both share buybacks and regular dividend increases. Solid combined ratios and a strong position by specializing in insurance segments with fewer competitors should allow Chubb to be a winner over the long haul.
