On CAPS, 98% of the 507 members who have rated Safety Insurance believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, JohnStuartMill, tapped Safety Insurance as an income opportunity worth considering:

The 58% payout ratio has me a bit worried, but is due to the recent big storm hit. The 4.9% [dividend yield] could possibly be a short term high. I would buy in here with no expectations of an increase in the dividend rate in the near future. In fact, if the dividend were further increased, it would worry me.
