    Lemonade (NYSE:LMND), the upstart insurance company, faces nothing but further losses as far as the eye can see. That effectively limits any potential upside for LMND stock.

    Hall: Yeah, I think you’re spot on, because you tossed out a bunch of names that are well-known. That younger app ecosystem people are very familiar with, but Intuit just is a stodgy name that people don’t know owns so many of those great brands. I’m going to go with Lemonade (NYSE:LMND). So you’re talking about a stodgy industry, doesn’t get much more stodgy than insurance. It’s as old as people having assets that they were worried about losing, it’s finding somebody with money that would be willing to replace it. Lemonade is disrupting that in a couple of different ways, like targeting the financial incentives. I think it’s really interesting, right, to better align insurees with insurers. Basically having a take rate and saying, OK, this is the money we’re going to take. This is ours, the rest of it we’ll use to cover underwriting and we’ll use reinsurers, a combination of those two things. And then any of that that’s leftover at the end of the year, hey customers, you just tell us your favorite charities and we’re going to divide it up and we’re going to give all that leftover money to charities. By not creating a float model and the incentives to not pay customer claims, immediately, you improve their customer relationship as a customer. Your ability to pay claims faster are improved because the incentives are changed. As a customer, I want to be a little more honest because I said Wildlife Fund is my charity. If I lie about a claim, I’m taking money from my charity, I know I’m doing something unethical that’s going to hurt a charity that I believe in. So realigning those incentives are important. They talk a lot about using AI and technology, I think that’s part of it, but I really think the killer app here is realigning incentives. I don’t think that gets enough credit. You think about some of the growth rates, grew their customer base about 50 percent year-over-year, enforce premiums up over 90 percent, premium per customer up to 29 percent. So you start

    Not only did Hippo Holdings have big names behind it, but it also came from the same Tel Aviv startup incubator as Lemonade (NYSE:LMND). Initially, it looked like the new company would challenge Lemonade in the insurance technology revolution, given its pedigree.

    Down more than 80% since its debut last fall, why would you want to follow the lead of Reddit traders, and jump into ROOT stock?
