United Financial Bancorp, Inc. Message Board

  • McGurk was spot on with his comments at the shareholders' meeting. The bank formed from Rockville and United will cease to exist as soon as the legal time period passes for them to be purchased by one of the big boys. The problem is that McGurk should have seen this coming before he agreed to the merger in the first place, was he that snowed by the stiff cut-out of a human being known as Crawford? I will hold my stock simply because at some point it will be worth more than the $10 a share when the bank is swallowed up by someone else. In the meantime, it is so sad to see such a quality community bank formerly known as Rockville disappear. I also feel for the employees who will never again know that "family" feeling. Just to shed some light, I nor any member of my family is employed by the bank.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Based on the track record since the merger it is obvious we should have sold our Rockville stock prior to the close of the deal. We can only hope it stays a little stable and then someone comes along and gobbles up the combined the bank and gives us a decent return for our stock.

    Sentiment: Sell

    True, true, true, and watch for the next earnings report to be not so rosy which explains the decline in share price. The buyout would still be a couple of years out though.

  • Surprised there has not been more noise about the stock price. Struggling to see the value in this "great deal". Not feeling optimistic. Feels like a select few executives are getting rich while investors are asked to hold under performing stock, employees work long hours and customer pay more fees.

    Sentiment: Hold
