Was this company a 2011 top stock?

Many companies faced tough times in 2008 -- and AIG was one of them. Receiving a massive $182 billion bailout check from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department during the Bush and Obama administrations, AIG saved itself and a lot of Wall Street banks from unrecoverable losses. The bailout kept the insurance giant afloat and in 2011, AIG had $17.8 billion in profits, a 128.6% increase from 2010.
