The Motley Fool

Name That Company:

I don't run Cineplex Entertainment movie theaters, but I do a lot of other things. A holding company, I'm one of the largest diversified financial corporations in the United States. I own 90 percent of CNA Financial Corp., one of America's largest insurance organizations, 54 percent of Diamond Offshore Drilling, 97 percent of watch- and clock-maker Bulova, all of Texas Gas Transmission and its 5,800-mile natural gas pipeline, all of Lorillard, America's oldest tobacco company, with brand names such as Kent and Newport, and 18 hotels and resorts that bear my name. Billionaire philanthropist Laurence Tisch, who died recently, was my co-founder. Who am I?
