Now you're starting to get it. I'm really sorry it has taken this long for it to start sinking in. This is not for you, since you get it: THERE IS NO VALUE TO AIG COMMON STOCK. IT IS A TRADING MEDIUM. IF YOU BUY THIS STOCK TO HOLD IT LONG-TERM YOU WILL, IN ALL LIKELIHOOD, LOSE ALL OF YOUR MONEY. THE GOVERNMENT OWNS THIS COMPANY. THE STOCK IS ONLY TRADING BECAUSE THERE IS NO RULE WHICH ALLOWED THE EXCHANGE TO SHUT IT DOWN. PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T GAMBLE MORE THAN YOU CAN AFFORD TO LOSE.
