Four of the nation’s five biggest title insurers were in the red during the third quarter, and the fifth — LandAmerica Financial Inc. — is also expected to have bad news when it releases results next week.

LandAmerica, which surprised analysts in July by announcing a bigger than expected $50 million second quarter loss, was scheduled to release third quarter numbers Wednesday.
