Here's what the impatient money is missing: Buyout could take longer than anticipated to finalize, because you have to do due diligence both ways - HBKS has to check out the stock it's trading for.
Don't think investors have really focused on this ... if bigger banks are going to buy, they have the stock value to do it.
Inside ownership is climbing ... it would still be tough though. Crazy outside shareholders are your best defense against an insider deal.
Of course, also remember, HBKS doesn't care about making big stock returns because the women in Norfolk have already found the certain road to wealth: marry an older man!
LMAO.....huddled up about 4 people at work to show them this one....sad indeed....was the laugh of the afternoon...thanks!!!!
You buy this stock, you're married to it. Probably why they are moving the meeting to the Town Point Club ... well-known for weddings. I now pronounce you "Bank and Shareholder".
potential acquirors stocks are way up!!!!!
You would think they would want to use it to buy something.
... I like it; the less your management does, the more they can focus ... and the less can go wrong. Plus it makes you a buyout target .... there's your exit strategy ... ALL ROLLED INTO ONE!
Why try to manage a lot of different divisions like TOWN and MNRK ... when only core banking and mortgages are drivers? And acquirors want core bank customers?
Rope-a-dope strategy is catching on ... just hold ... then you'll be there for the buyout. Another HBKS share may never trade, who knows? What stock you have you're stuck with it ... be grateful!
Dog announces that another company (not his) has news to report. Indeed, another company is actually doing something!!!!!
Parade is in order!!! Lets head to TheDump!!
