Reported EPS for 2010-Rs.6.45.
Sri Lanka is still at the infancy when it comes to insurance and has a huge potential in both life and general insurance. With the strong backing of HNB bank HASU could become a definite winner in the sector. I have analysed the earnings of the company below.
Price Earnings (P/E) on reported EPS-12

Industry analysis (forward PE)
Union Assurance-34
Ceylinco Insurance -50
Amana-71

We can see that HASU is clearly undervalued and has a potential price of 100-140.

Cheers.
Happy trading

Hi lion
Yes lion HASU and JINS are most undervalued in this sector. JINS is stagnant in the range of Rs.15-18... HASU will be on upward track..

AMANA TAKAFUL PLC 75.6
JANASHAKTHI INSURANCE COMPANY PLC 9.0
UNION ASSURANCE PLC 33.0
CEYLINCO INSURANCE PLC 36.7
HNB ASSURANCE PLC 13..

As you expect it would hit in the range of 120-140...
