Insurance is not the business you want to be in after Isaac decided to remind Louisiana residents that hurricane Katrina was not a once in a lifetime event. However, one insurance focused company that you want to add to the list of penny stocks to watch is Jacobs Financial Group Inc. (JFGI), even to buy. Since they began trading in the beginning of the month, JFGI stock has risen like the New Orleans flood waters, over 2,000%, on speculation that you could be receiving some hard mailers in the coming days.

There isn’t really too much to get excited about with JFGI other than the PPS increase it has displayed in the last two weeks. Visit their website, and you’ll think you landed on a 2nd grade HTML homework project. Further investigating into their $8,256,038 in investments and cash as of February 29th, and you find that $8,254,975 is restricted. So where’s the juice?
Think Forum National Investments (FMNL) but on a smaller PPS scale.
Rather than life insurance, Jacob’s Financial operates through their four wholly owned subsidiaries, FS Investments, Inc., Jacobs & Company, First Surety Corporation and Crystal Mountain Water, Inc. The bulk of the business passes through First Surety.
As of the close of 2005, Jacob’s Financial acquired the former West Virginia Fire and Casualty Company, subsequently renamed First Surety Corporation, from The Celina Mutual Insurance Company. The acquisition consisted of the purchase of marketable investments and insurance licenses and did not include any existing policies or customer base as the insurance lines that were being offered were not the same types of insurance that new ownership intended to pursue.
First Surety, based in West Virginia, is a property and casualty company with licenses in West Virginia, Indiana and Ohio, targeting primarily coal and oil & gas industry surety markets in the Eastern United States. As of February 29, 2012, the Company has incurred an event of default with respect to quarterly interest and principal payments under its bridge-financing arrangement and needs $3,208,700 to cure the default.
That is where the juice has to flow from on this rumored hard mailer promotion that is about to commence.
