    AEH is a sreaming buy no brainer buy here gents

    I'm not clear on what AEG's position in LEH is...or was. Did AEG own bonds that it insured with CDOs? Then it will get full recovery if the counterparty pays off. Did AEG insure LEH bonds? Then AEG will receive 9 cents on the dollar and have to pay out the other 91 cents. Did AEG own LEH bonds that were not insured? Then AEG recovers 9 cents, but how much did AEG writedown? Did it previously write it down to zero? Then it gets a boost on the recovery. Or did AEG write it down partially, and will it then have to write it down even 9 cents? Or did AEG own some other kind of LEH paper that is not part of Friday's auction?
