Was this company a 2011 top stock?

MetLife's purchase of American Life Insurance Company (ALICO) from AIG in November 2010 has given it a global edge, particularly in Japan. The company's real estate investments department, which created more than $11 billion in commercial mortgage loans in 2011, had its best production year ever. Revenue increased 34% over 2010, and MetLife inched 12 spots up the Fortune 500 ladder.
