I am new to Yahoo Message boards. I have owned RBPAA for years and am reinvesting the dividends. It is a nice conservative stock to own with a steady growth. In 4/98 invested $4250 and with reinvestment have a tax basis of $4775 and a value of $6050 - not a high flyer but one you can buy and forget -- well, at least only check every month or so.
I logged on this board to learn other's feelings and was very disappointed that most of the comments here are totally unrelated to the stock and are just more ads. Is this characteristic of the small stock bulletin boards?
Yes, unfortunately most of the small bank stocks do not garner a big following and the boards are just full of advertisement postings. I have just bought 200 shares of RBPAA in my 401(k) hoping for some nice long term growth. Other banks I own are PBCI (NJ), BRB (NJ), WSB (MD), FKKY (KY), KYF (KY), all with low book values, low P/E ratios and/or high dividend yields. Tell me what you think and what other banks you are in, if any.
