Potential Takeover Candidate? (NYSE: RE)

Shares of RE traded higher by 3.01% or $2.87/share to $98.30. NYSE is trading at a price to book ratio of 0.84.

The PEG is 0.8 suggesting that the shares are trading at an excellent value relative to firm's growth rate. The price to sales ratio came in at 1.09.
