07:04 EDTAIGAIG believes a full breakup in near-term would detract from shareholder value
With these actions, AIG has taken another major step in simplifying our organization to be a leaner, more profitable insurer, while continuing to return capital to shareholders and improve shareholder returns," said President and CEO Peter Hancock. "The creation of more nimble, standalone business units that can grow within AIG or be spun out or sold allows us to do what is in our shareholders' best interests." Douglas M. Steenland, AIG's Non-Executive Chairman, said, "The Board's actions reflect its full support for the plans that Peter Hancock and his management team have put forward, and we are aligned that these steps will deliver strong results while creating more options for shareholder value creation in subsequent years. After careful consideration, AIG believes that a full breakup in the near term would detract from, not enhance, shareholder value. A lack of diversification benefits would reduce capital available for distribution, and there would be a loss of tax benefits. Being a non-bank SIFI is not currently a binding constraint on return of capital," said Mr. Steenland.

06:43 EDTAXPAmerican Express downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Cheryl Pate downgraded American Express (AXP) to Equal Weight saying double digit earnings growth is pushed out until at least 2018. The company's growth story is "increasingly under pressure" amid an evolving payments landscape, Pate tells investors in a research note. The analyst cut her price target for American Express shares to $64. The stock closed Friday down $7.59 to $55.05 following the company's Q4 earnings miss. Pate sees a better risk/reward for shares of Discover (DFS), her top pick in the credit card space. Oppenheimer analyst Ben Chittenden this morning upgraded American Express to his firm's neutral rating.
