Better Buy Right Now: Warren Buffett or AIG?

Warren Buffett's track record and the performance of his conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway speaks for itself. No can question the high-quality businesses that he has assembled under one umbrella. AIG , on the other hand, served as a prime example of a low-quality and poorly managed business during the financial crisis.

However, as AIG cleans itself up and looks toward the future, is its stock a more attractive long-term play than Buffett's giant? In this video, Motley Fool financials analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer debate which stock offers investors the most opportunity.
