06:34 EDTEMCIEMC Insurance cuts FY14 EPS to $1.55-$1.80 from $2.00-$2.25, one estimate $2.10
The revised guidance is based on a projected GAAP combined ratio for the year of 102.6 percent, and a mid-to-high single digit increase in investment income. The projected GAAP combined ratio has a load of 10.8 percentage points for catastrophe and storm losses, which reflects a decrease of 0.4 percentage points from the previous load of 11.2 percentage points.

16:41 EDTUFCSUnited Fire & Casualty sees Q3 EPS (3c)-1c, consensus 43c
The company said, "Catastrophe losses for the third quarter are estimated to add approximately 12 percentage points to the combined ratio, which impacts earnings by approximately $0.59 per share. Although third quarter was a rather benign quarter for catastrophic events, during the latter weeks of the second quarter, a significant number of catastrophic events occurred resulting in more carryover claims than originally anticipated. Third quarter catastrophe losses reflect these carryover claims. As a reminder the numerous catastrophe events during second quarter were geographically disbursed and individually insignificant. The losses in aggregate, however, became significant...We currently expect large losses to impact earnings by approximately $0.61 to $0.65 per share. It is not unusual in any given quarter to receive a multi-million dollar fire claim; however, in third quarter 2014, we experienced eight such events. Some were new claims and some were reserve changes due to additional information from prior events."
