BMO Capital initiated coverage on American International Group (NYSE: AIG) with an Outperform rating and a price target of $50.00. Analyst Charles J. Sebaski thinks AIG earnings troughed, and as the situation improves, it creates a "positive feedback loop."

"As operating earnings improve . . . the transition of a non-income generating asset into an income generating asset speeds up the improvement in operating ROE, creating a positive feedback loop. As such, we expect AIG will resume capital management activities by the end of 2013, either through a common share dividend or reinstating share repurchases, or possibly both. Either of these options we believe are positive catalysts for the stock," said Sebaski.
