Smart people are buying. This isn't going down and buyout could come sooner than people think - if it's a stock for stock deal, the fact bank shares are depressed won't make much difference. Get enough stock in exchange and it's still a deal.
5 years later and you're still spewing "buyout" #$%$.....
Got my proxy statement - very diverse ownership - that's unusual; not concentrated with couple of big insiders like your typical small bank. Someone might just make a tender offer.
Ask is $14.00 - bid is $12.90. Spread is too big! If it stays like that, no one will ever trade this again.
