XL Group, Travelers Companies, Fidelity National Financial, and Assured Guaranty Under StockCall's Microscope

LONDON, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

(NYSE: TRV), Fidelity National Financial Inc. (NYSE: FNF) and Assured Guaranty Ltd. (NYSE: AGO). Meanwhile, rising losses related to catastrophes are also putting pressure on property and casualty insurers. On Monday, insurance stocks came under pressure, tracking losses in the broad market, which fell sharply following some weaker-than-expected U.S. economic data. StockCall has released full comprehensive research on XL, TRV, FNF, and AGO and these free technical analyses can be downloaded by signing up at
