247WallSt.com's Most Hated Companies In America (AIG, C, S)
247Wallst.com is out with America's 15 most hated companies, which include AIG (NYSE:AIG), Citigroup (NYSE:C) and Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S).
Good ol' AIG starts the list out at the number one spot:
1. AIG (NYSE:AIG) is the most hated company in America. Taxpayers despise the firm because it received nearly $180 billion in government aid. AIG has fired enough people and operates under such pressure to turn around its operations that employee morale is understandably low. The firm’s brand is worth so little that some of its divisions have aggressively begun to market themselves under names other than AIG. Vanno’s company reputation index puts AIG as No. 5585 among the 6075 firms that it measures. AIG’s market cap lost over 99% of its value during the last two years, virtually wiping out the firm’s equity investors. CEO Robert Benmosche pressed for a rich pay package while his predecessor worked for $1.
