AIG: Buyback and Dividend Winner

Fri, 02 Aug 2013 16:18:46 EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- AIG was the big winner among large cap financial stocks Friday after second quarter earnings beat estimates by 30% and the insurer surprised investors with a share buyback and its first dividend increase since the financial crisis.

Or maybe you have seen this movement grow and are now wondering when the torches and pitchforks will appear, and whether you should gather up some of your pocket change and spring for a few more $230,000 guard dogs .

It's all good, as far as we're concerned. We were just wondering whether you felt a little bit left out since The Lede, a blog from The New York Times, has asked members of the 99% of the unwashed masses to share their thoughts about the protests without bothering to ask for your input. ...
