Genworth Financial (NYSE: GNW) provides domestic and international mortgage insurance, long-term care insurance, and life insurance products. Genworth's exposure to some of the recently maligned companies (like Fannie Mae (FNM), Freddie Mac (FRE), American International Group (AIG), Lehman Brothers (LEH), and Washington Mutual (WM)) totals roughly $630 million.[1]

In February 2008, Genworth reported a $93 million write-down due to underestimated risk in its actuarial models as well as losses due to investments in subprime securities.[2] Over the past year, Genworth's stock has steadily fallen from a high of 31.77 per share to a low of 4.85 per share as of September 29, 2008.[3]

That said, the company has maintained its "AA" credit rating while many of its competitors have been reduced to "A" ratings.[4] It maintains approximately $800 million in cash and has a roughly $1.8 billion credit facility available.[5] The company has even continued to issue a $0.10 quarterly dividend.[6]
