Just yesterday, one of those Fools, rlbeard6734, succinctly summed up the Hartford Financial bull case for our community:

[O]ne half of BV, low PE, decent dividend, lots of cash on hand, good earnings prospects, working through previous year's problems well. [N]ot rated highly by analysts yet so upgrades will be coming after this quarter when YOY comparisons will be great. Not often you can buy a company that is at such a low PE for one half of its book value.
