Executives Flee! Sign of Future Trouble?


In addition to JPMorgan Chase recently losing its co-COO, AIG has announced four of its insurance executives are headed to rival Berkshire Hathaway .

In this video, Motley Fool financials analyst David Hanson tells investors why they shouldn't worry about the departures. He also cites one company that saw its share price skyrocket after some high-level executives were shown the door.
