The insurance company is known for its tagline: "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there." That may no longer be true for Florida homeowners. In December, State Farm filed to exit the homeowners market there, but so far still has one million homeowner policies in effect.

As the largest personal lines insurer in the U.S. (through its property, life and health policies), State Farm covers about one in five households. The company has weathered the financial meltdown better than some of its peers and, according to Moody's Investors Service, has no exposure to subprime securities. --Suzanne Kapner
