Small banks aren't really good investments ... thanks, now we know.
I would take a look at the Chinese market. Wait ... buy HBKS; when it's sold, monetize your investment - then invest in China.
I wouldn't say China ... CEO doesn't want to turn the shareholders lose and watch them lose their money. We need a big bank stock we can hold ... like BBT!
Need to rethink this ... Banc Funds Company specializes in community banks and seems to make a lot of money.
