If you look at Price-To-Book and Enterprise Value metrics, ETFC looks remarkably cheap. The mortgage mess is history and the management has cleverly leaned the balance sheet and the P/L to remove waste, and inefficiencies. AMTD, SCHW, and IBKR have Price-To-Book ratios over 3.0. Actually, AMTD has a P/B ratio of 4.0. ETFC has a Price-To-Book of only 1.57. The Enterprise values for AMTD, SCHW, and IBKR are all tremendously lower than their Market Capitalization. ONLY ETFC market value is less than its Enterprise Value. ETFC's Enterprise value is at $14.6B and it is only valued at $8.6B. This is a 41% discount, which means a fair value of $50 per share is in the math. If ETFC only reached a Price-To-Book ratio of 3.0, which is closer to parity with their industry, we could see a value over $60, which is a cool 100% gain from here (I'm dreaming here).
Either way you slice it, ETFC is poised for a nice climb when rates rise and in an effort to be more fairly valued, The math speaks volumes on this idea.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
0.02% growth, a triumph, a triumph Mr. President. The left has been at the wheel for 6+ years, and we have no growth other than in Billy's and Hillary's top 1% earners. Mr. Bernanke gets a "F" grade for his foolish central banks actions. You would think after six years of FED zero rates they would finally realize..."IT'S NOT WORKING". and change course. The capital markets are no longer capitalistic, the boys in the Hamptons are calling the shots. They are the organ grinder, and the FED chairman is the monkey!
U.S. economic growth slows to 0.2 percent, grinding nearly to a halt
The U.S. economy ground nearly to a halt in the first three months of the year, according to government data released Wednesday morning.
The gross domestic product grew between January and March at an annualized rate of 0.2 percent, the U.S. Commerce Department said, adding to the picture of an economy braking sharply after accelerating for much of last year. The pace fell well shy of the 1 percent mark anticipated by analysts and marked the weakest quarter in a year.
It's so sad that our first African-American President will be judged by history as the most inept, corrupt, wasteful, subversive, destructive and divisive President ever. A man twice elected because of the color of his skin rather than the content of his character.
Facts show Democrats will vote for Hillary simply because of her sex but not the content of her character.
The trend is set...
~ Huge Welfare State Bills, that are only growing as baby boomers retire.
~ No Balanced Budget in sight = Fed Printing = National debt keeps growing.
~ $280 Billion a year and growing, just to finance debt.
There can be no mystery for why GDP is so anemic.
Dems Use Train Wreck for political gain, even before the dead bodies had cooled...
Several politicians were grandstanding asking for more money and blaming Republicans
for a lack of Amtrak funding... Then we got the word that the train was doing 106 in a curved 50mph zone.
Way to go Dems... Never let a good tragedy go to waste, I guess.
What Did You Think Would Happen, Libs and Race-baters?
If You Don't Have The Police's Backs, What Do You Expect Cops To Do?
Choosing to shine the light on the tiny fraction of police abuse cases, instead of putting
Attention & Effort on Tackling the Rampant Violent Crime in many inner cities, is Ridiculous!
Now many police are on a slow-down, playing it SAFE. ** Good For Them**
If cops are going to be surrounded by gangs every time they try to make an arrest now,
why should they bother anymore putting their lives on the line?
If every time a cop is about to engage in a pursuit that may lead to having to draw his gun,
why would that cop risk it, knowing now that there is a strong chance he is going
to be USED politically by you Libs and Your Race-Baters?
** You Appeasers are Creating a Mob Rule ~ Criminals are being Emboldened **
** Arrest rates are down 50% while the murder rates are skyrocketing **
If you won't let cops be Proactive on the streets, this is what happens, Liberal Democrats!
So Let us Know When You're Ready to Shine The Light on The Real Problems of
VIOLENT CRIME Brought on by POVERTY Caused by Your Failed Liberal Policies.
Thought You Cared About Black Lives? ~ No You Don't !
Apparently Your're Happy **PLAYING POLITICS** With Black Lives.
You guessed it, another example of people of color destroying what others built. The lefts soldiers of fortune do what they do best.
Macon Wal-Mart mob wanted to see how much damage it could do
Surveillance video of a wee-hours ruckus at a Macon Wal-Mart on Sunday shows a teenager race inside flashing gang signs ahead of a mob of four dozen or so people who burst in and smashed merchandise.
Some in the crowd also snatched a man, apparently a shopper at the Zebulon Road store, from a motorized shopping cart and dragged him to the floor, Bibb County sheriff’s officials said Monday. The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the store’s main aisle about 1:50 a.m. Sunday, “destroying merchandise displays and items,” a sheriff’s deputy’s report of the incident noted.
Floors in parts of the store were “coated with broken merchandise,” the report added. “The length of the store from front to rear was lined with items which had been shattered, destroyed, turned over and thrown about.”
When I heard Al Sharpton was guest preacher at a black Chicago Church, I decided to check him out in person and see what it was all about.
I sat down and Sharpton came up to me, I don't know why, maybe it was because I was the only white person in the Church.
He laid his hands on my hand and said: "By the will of Jesus the Lord All Mighty, and the will of God, you will walk today."
I told him I was not paralyzed. Then Jesse Jackson came by and repeated the same thing. Again I told him there is nothing wrong with me.
After the sermon I stepped outside and lo and behold, my car had been stolen!
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton's family's charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors. The foundation and its list of donors have been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks. Republican critics say the foundation makes Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, vulnerable to undue influence. Her campaign team calls these claims "absurd conspiracy theories." The charities' errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters.
"Even as the first lady," she bemoaned, "not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me" at a Target store "was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf." Remember: ABC News reported that Mrs. Obama claimed such "incidents are 'the regular course of life' for African Americans and a 'challenge' for the country to overcome."
The anecdote turned out to be a tall tale — with the emphasis on "tall." The reason the 5-foot-11 first lady was asked to get detergent off the Target shelf was that her vertically challenged fellow shopper couldn't reach it. How do we know this? Because Mrs. Obama said so herself in a radically different version of the Target story she told David Letterman three years ago.
"I reached up, 'cause she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down," the first lady described with that megawatt grin, and the shopper said, "Well, you didn't have to make it look so easy." Far from psychologically debilitated by any racial "sting," Mrs. Obama told Letterman, "I felt so good" helping out the short woman
**Stephanopoulos never disclosed this information to viewers**
Well, well, well....another lying Democrat. What a little weasel pretending to be an objective newsman, along knowing he was in the tank with the Clintons.These mythomaniac's have no shame, then again neither does the Liar-in-Chief in the Whitehouse.
George Stephanopoulos discloses $75,000 contribution to Clinton Foundation
ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos has given $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation in recent years, charitable contributions that he did not publicly disclose while reporting on the Clintons or their nonprofit organization, the On Media blog has learned. In 2012, 2013 and 2014, Stephanopoulos made $25,000 donations to the 501 nonprofit founded by former President Bill Clinton, the foundation's records show.
Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation have been hit with a racketeering lawsuit in Florida court.
The lawsuit, filed by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, includes a legal request to have the Florida judge seize the private server on which Hillary Clinton and her aides hosted their emails while she served as secretary of state. Klayman has filed dozens of lawsuits against the Clintons and other prominent politicians.
The racketeering, influenced and corrupt organizations, or RICO, case alleges the former first couple and their family philanthropy traded political favors for donations or generous speaking fees for Bill Clinton while his wife was the nation's chief diplomat.
HRC=Hillary's Really Corrupt.
Felix Kiprono said he was willing to pay 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats in order to fulfil his dream of marrying the first daughter.
Sanchez, another Mexican suspected in the shooting death of a woman at a busy San Francisco tourist destination has seven felony convictions and has been deported five times, most recently in 2009, a federal agency said Friday.
Deporting them is a joke if you let them right back in!!!!!
drunk enough to fall of of a treadmill and fracture their face. Harry was not in an accident. His organized crime bosses decided he was not able to deliver so they persuaded him to retire. He should have said, "Yes, I retire!. the second they knocked on the door.
Huffinton Post Sheldon Filger 04/12/2015 "No better illustration exists of the dysfunctional nature of American politics than the phenomenon of Hillary Clinton. Devoid of any measurable accomplishments that have unambiguously advanced the interests of the United States and her people, Mrs. Clinton's stature as the frontrunner in the upcoming 2016 presidential contest and virtual shoo-in for the Democratic Party's nomination is predicated entirely on her status as a political celebrity. And those who are utterly objective recognize that this celebrity power that has catapulted Hillary Clinton to within striking distance of the presidency is totally derived from the brand name that comes with being the wife of Bill Clinton."
Even the Lefty HuffPo calls out Hillary for having absolutely NO accomplishments! Bwhahahahahaha, Lots of titles nothing to show for them (except 4 dead Americans that "Don't Matter" Bwhahahahaha
Asked whether the candidates were "honest and trustworthy," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., won with 67 percent, with Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., right behind him at 63. Hillary scored only 44 percent, the lowest rating for any candidate for any attribute in the poll. Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here's her scorecard:
— Chelsea was jogging around the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
— Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
— She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
— She and Bill were dirt poor after they left the White House.
— She didn't know about the pardons of members of the violent Puerto Rico nationalist group
Whoppers She Won't Confess To:
— She didn't know about the pardons of members of the violent Puerto Rico nationalist group FALN.
— She didn't know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
— Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
— She didn't know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
— She didn't know that the Peter Paul fund-raiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
— She opposed NAFTA at the time.
— She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
— She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
— She played a role in the '90s economic recovery.
— The Rose Law Firm billing records showed up on their own.
— She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
— She was always a Yankees fan.
— She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400 to 12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
— She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
