    Few banks ever say they are for sale .. why not?

    1. Could discourage customers.
    2. Could discourage employees.
    3. Could make potential acquirors mad because bank is pumping up the stock price.
    4. Risk to reputation if you don't get a good bid.
    5. Puts you in a weaker negotiating position.

    But none of that stops a bank from dropping little hints.
