AIG to earn $5.77 this past year = AIG goes to $57
AIG is expected to earn $5.77 this past year on February 13, after market close.
If AIG reports earnings on the order of $5.77, and the future guidance points to any growth, AIG goes to $57 quick -- IMHO.
High analyst estimate for 2013 is $5.40 with average estimate of $4.39. I'm not sure where you plucked $5.77 from though I'd imagine its a dark and damp place. AIG doesn't need your spam posts to excel IMHO!
It is less with earnings (is the consensus really 5.77US$?) but more with a possible announcement of buybacks - logically I would expect them after earnings in may (after closing ILFC deal) but my gut feeling is - perhaps tomorrow? The last years with AIG were never predictable .. We will see it in 28 hours though ...
