NPBC pays a meager 4 cent annual dividend and has diluted the stock through mega-isssuances of common stock.
This stock is essentially dead in the water until NPBC demonstrates consistent "quality"earnings growth. I grow weary of their superficial, quarterly reconciliation of core earnings. They need to catch a break in the economy to radically reduce non-performings and increase loan demand.
All that said, the best thing for NPBC shareholders is a sooner rather than later sale to a stronger institution.
