    Regret buying a position in this crap pile of a bank. Do not know if I should take the loss and invest in a real stock or wait it out. Kept hoping they would be gobbled up by bigger bank. Not sure management has a grasp or if it is just this sour economy.

    • Don't own PBCT, but have looked at it several times. Nice yield, high PE with little earnings momentum. Poor Management, takeover unlikely in this environment, with big banks still worried about survival rather than getting bigger. Better than a CD, if you're happy with 5+% and don't need it for something better ok. Little upside or downside in this one over the next couple of years.

    • Think of it this way, every branch is and will become another nail in the coffin of PBCT. ATM's will take over.

      If and when the consolidations start PBCT and WBS and FNFG will all be acquisition targets for larger Regionals who want a foothold in New England. All the banks are doing this musical chairs thing, nobody wants to merge yet, but sooner or later the music will stop and some bank will find itself without a chair. Could be tomorrow or it could be two years away, but the wave is coming.

      • We will have go through 4 more years of a failed experiment from a community organizer who is leading us to self destruction.

        Sorry for the political rant.
        Aggravated with politics, wall street, and government. The doom and gloomers of a one world government, world bank, common money, I always laughed at them. Not any more.

        So many want 12 chickens cooking in the post, a government hand out, and redistribution of wealth. Sounds like Marxism?

        The main theme for the post:

      • Now why would a management team do this "musical chairs thing"?
        Wouldn't be self interest would it?
        Because it sure as hell isn't in the broader stockholders best interest.

    • If you think it's going to be a cloudy November, dump it.
      If you think it's going to be a sunny November, hangon.

      Team Robin Hood has made it crystal clear who they're going after.
      It's all about rates.
