    honestly.. the CEO was on CNBC last night.. and if the fellow is honest, the door is shut on the past and they can concentrate on making shareholders money, building reserves and regaining integrity ! I bought this morning

    Last quarter results:

     

    "Book value per share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI), of $57.87, up 15.5 percent for the year"

     

    At a current trading price of around $38, how AIG can possibly be fairly valued?

    i am not familiar with the balance sheet of AIG. However, i have looked at many of the large commercial banks. If you start to adjust the balance sheet for all of the crap they are hiding...bad mortgages, derivatives.....you rarely find one that has a book value more than zero.

     

    So, do you own work to calculate book value. The accounting rules have been changed to ensure that anything 'bad' is ignored....but that doesn't mean it isn't still there, and unless we get another gubment bail out when these things collapse, it WILL matter in temrs of what someone (anyone?) is willing to pay to take them out of their misery.

    Sterne just wants you to sell so they can buy it up. You know for a fact that they are not advising their big private clients to sell when most every big hedge fund is buying like crazy. And, there will be a large share buyback soon that will increase the BV.

     

    Never listen to this crap from a brokerage house. They are not there to help you. They are your competitor plain and simple.

     

    Stupidest downgrade I ever saw.

     

    Tad if you don't know a darn thing about AIG's balance sheet, you have no business making a comment about it. Read the 10K and you'll find everything you need to know. It all has to be disclosed. If you have the inclination to read it all, you'll find everything on their books. I always read 10K's before buying any position.

    To those of you above who bought recently: Hold and add on all big dips. I wouldn't be selling!

    I could be wrong, but I don't see any big dips, other than the occasional day when the dow crashes 150 and you get a dollar dip which is always a good add point, or when it hits resistance and falls maybe 2 points over a week. This isn't DDD folks. Volatility is shown as high, but it appears that most of this is intraday volatility after watching carefully from my initial buy point of 30.50. Smooth move to current level with a bit of a struggle to break out at 37.
