AIG has replaced Apple as the hedge fund industry’s favorite stock after Apple’s stock slid 20 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011 while AIG – infamous for its government bailout and the near-meltdown that helped to trigger the Great Recession – saw its share price rise by 7.65 last quarter. Hedge funds have reduced their Apple positions by 30 percent while simultaneously buying AIG, seeing it as a cheap restructured entity with lots of potential.
