    • I don't know why anyone is concerned. They do not have exposure to CDO's or CDS's and have very little to do with AIG in general. No one is selling treasury bonds because Goldman Sachs runs the treasury department so similar arguements about AWH and AIG are unfounded. This is by far one of the cheapest insurers and it has a lower leverage ratio than most insurers well being cheaper valuation-wise than them as well. I don't like the lack of movement in a stock but that argument just means you miss the beginning. This is the single greatest position one can take in a stock with a greater than $2B market cap. The downside is small(check their March 6th price) and their fair value is around $80+. Most arguments against AWH avoid actual dollar figures which should tell the whole story. If interested in the real facts look at:

      • Madoff's auditors also believe in Madoff because they were paid off and are now in jail.

        Enron's auditors went out of business because they were in bed with their client. The list goes on. This is one of the oldest tricks around.

        One must question AWH reserves & financial dealings given their special relationship with AIG.

        This nli200808 is pumping this stock. Don't believe this.

        I think AWH is overpriced given all this uncertainty.

        The fact that AWH is connected so deeply with AIG is a big liability and can only hurt this stock.

        I would like see the board of directors immediately distance themselves from AIG management. Until they do so, AWH will only be a small puppet company with a dead parent and a tarnished AIG reputation.

        Reputation is everything in this industry.
