I have this leather checkbook cover with a Green Bay Packer logo. I take it out late at night at the clubs and the ladies just fawn all over me. They want what I have. I closed the account 5 years ago but they don't know that.
ASBC has way to much risky commercial loans on their books to be buying at these prices. ASBC has faired well over the past few weeks and has actually outperformed most other regionals in the KRE regional banking index. Smells like a secondary offering coming.
This stock has held up too well relative wise not for there to be something in the works. With their books containing a large protion of commercial loans I would be very surprised if they don't try to raise some capital here. I actually would like the stock alot better if they did a secondary which would give them something to work with and make it somewhat a takeover candidate. But right here, I can't be a buyer.
