Thanks for Info. This stock has much long term value if economy does not take a dive. Patience will pay off big time. Suspect some tax selling affecting stock for the next 2-3 weeks. Mostly to lock in gains. That .50 cents special is a great clue about what management thinks of this company and it's future. Hope you have a ton of shares.
Wait till they get their BHS status done! 2013 will a very rewarding year for CSE. The loan originating platform is hitting on all cylinders and with BHS approved they will increase revenue by offering services and fee that they can not under current status. They will also be able to dip into more of real state instruments that they have experience in which will increase their profit margins by healthy percentage. Look for ongoing dividends to increase too next year at some point. If we can hit north of $8.30 and maintain then the management will turn the remainder of the buyback program into ongoing dividend at higher normal bank rates. That by itself will increase our stability by having more of the income funds picking up our shares and pushing the price higher. There are also talks about acquisitions next year too. All in all, we are going to be prosperous on the long term basis in CSE.
