Short squeeze from the Alico story will run its course. Some bought at $21-22 and will sell now at $27 as it has peaked. Fundamentals haven't changed except there may be one fewer profitable business unit in the future.
Good point. And you figure another company isn't usually going to buy a unit that loses money, so AIG sells all the profit-generating units, pays off some of the government loan, and is left with a bunch of miscellaneous companies that lose money. Hmmmm. That does not sound like a good investment.
