should the board start marketing the company? i don't know. but i wonder if they are already doing that. returns, dividends, growth, don't mean a thing when the single focus is to enrich the company ... also known as the board...self enrichment with the stock holders along for the ride. a short, small, ride we should admit. that's ok with most of you.... but what about our intersts? i feel asbc will be taken over by the end of this year.get on my ride or sit on the fence. people , i don't care. but please, be concerned at every days end. does anyone else see the "carnival rides" being built? i cannot help but think that the BOARD is looking at the company with a jaundiced eye. my opinion for what it's worth.
I also agree this is a company set up to be gobbled up. There were some pretty strong rumors that Wells would buy the bank and sell off the MN branches to Anchor bank. I am hoping they are acquired and looking for a 20-35% premium on the stock.
thank you kevinretire. at least you heard me. i got word today another person was let go ( fired) from a branch and that in no way will this position be filled. do you hear fattening the cow? get real investors, we are being marketed for sale. don't we all wish we had more stock in asbc! we shall see soon.
