Overheard Around the Web

Over on StockTwits, here’s an example of what they’re saying about AIG:

    $AIG I know there are bears out there regarding AIG. Some mention potential cyber security liability. For those bears, what do you think AIG is worth? I'm not talking about short term, but in the long term. I think it is worth a lot more than its current $. Here is the basic logic. One of the biggest USA insurance payouts was hurricane sandy, which cost insurers $36B. Assuming another a liability of thissize hit the USA (i.e. hurricane, cyber secur, Covid, etc) assuming AIG has a 50% market share thus their liability would be $18B, AIG's book value after this hit would be $54.10/share. Current BV is $577B minus $18B minus total liabilities of $512.6B dividend total outstanding shares. So if AIG trades at BV it would be worth $54.10 per share. Historically, insurance companies has traded around 1 to 1.3x BV. Given that they are selling their Life & retirement unit, higher UW premiums, there are many catalyst to the stock. Major headwind is interest rates, but in LT rates should go up.
