In the video below, Fool analyst Matt Koppenheffer discusses what he believes is the biggest opportunity ahead for AIG (NYSE:AIG).
AIG may be the poster child for the financial bailout era, and for many investors, the company still carries the stigma of what happened.
But things are different today. The company has made huge strides since 2008, Matt says. Cash has been raised. Non-core operations have been spun off. This is all largely at the hands of current CEO Robert Benmosche.
The fact that many investors still see AIG as one of the prime evildoers of the financial crisis has the stock still trading at a very low valuation. The combination of the improvements it's made and the low valuation it trades at has made AIG a stock that should be on a value investors' radar.
