American International Group (AIG) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after its earnings fell well short of the Street consensus.

AIG dropped 8.9% to $60.85 today, while the S&P 500 gained 0.5% to 2,349.25.
Yes, AIG’s earnings were bad. It reported an operating loss of $2.72 a share, missing forecasts for a profit of 42 cents, according to Bloomberg. And it didn’t help that John Paulson’s Paulson & Co. cut its stake in the insurer.
You’ll notice the forecast is different than what it was in my earlier post on AIG–and an AIG spokesperson even reached out to tell me that the consensus, at least according to FactSet, should had been for a loss of 61 cents a share.

Accordingly, comparisons to prior reported results, and to some extent our 4Q16 estimates, require some reconciliation.
Macquarie’sAmit Kumar considers the bull and bear cases on AIG:

Results are not directly comparable to street consensus due to lack of unanimity in terms of reserve adjustment estimates. Results included a higher than estimated $5.6 billion or $3.56/share of adverse development. The company had previously announced the possibility of a material reserve charge in the quarter. The bulls on the stock would note that this quar

Hot Financial Stocks For 2018: QCR Holdings Inc.(QCRH)
- [By Keith Fitz-Gerald]
My favorite at the moment is QCR Holdings Inc. (NasdaqGM:QCRH).
Founded in 1993 and headquartered in Moline, IL, the bank has a strong regional lending base in Illinois and Iowa that should grow in line with the broader national economy. I particularly like the fact that the bank considers itself relationship-driven at a time when trust is in short supply.
