Wall Street's Wise AIG Buy?

Is AIG (NYSE: AIG  ) a good buy for Wall Street? The underwriters of the Treasury's $18 billion AIG stock sale earlier this week exercised their options to buy $2.7 billion worth. This included Citigroup (NYSE: C  ) , Deutsche Bank (NYSE: DB  ) , Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS  ) , and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM  ) .

Although too-big-to-fail investing in too-big-to-fail brings up some concerns, Fool analyst Anand Chokkavelu thinks it could be a good deal for the banks. see the following video below. (Note that the video was filmed before the underwriter option exercises).

In fact some of the best opportunities over the next few years can be found there, including one small, under-the-radar bank.
