- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 21.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 46.2%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 156.78% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 42.80% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock despite its gains in the past year.
- AIG's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.73 is somewhat low overall, but it is high when compared to the industry average, implying that the management of the debt levels should be evaluated further.
- The gross profit margin for AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL GROUP is rather low; currently it is at 23.20%. Despite the low profit margin, it has increased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, AIG's net profit margin of 10.48% compares favorably to the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has decreased to $1,207.00 million or 49.58% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower.
