Kearny Financial Corp. Message Board

    How stupid can Kearny Fed be?

    Very!!! To buy this POS for $7.50 /share is unimaginable. Look at CJ's financials: profit margin of -138.01%; ROA of -4.42%; ROE of -36.54%; price to book of .63; etc. And look at Kearny. It's numbers are pathetic. I always had my doubts about Hopkins, and was happy to learn he was finally retiring, but cannot believe the new Hopkins/Montanaro team pulled off this radical blunder. I'm looking at a 2:38 PM Kearny price of $8.92, down .43. Sickening.

    • And still @ $8.92 after today's close. KRNY cannot afford to take on this risk. Look at Kearny's earnings. Their EPS(ttm) is only .09 and they have been paying a .20 dividend. Their net income as of 6/30/09 was only $6.4 million. No wonder the chairman sold 10,000 shares in Feb.

    • I am speculating that our management team in their infinite wisdom is basically betting on the shore real estate market. They probably feel that it has bottomed out and things will improve from here. Of course this gives them exposer to some markets they may not been involved in previously. There is still a ton of money in Spring Lake and Sea Girt and Bay Head. This may sound crazy but I think our bank would have a better image if it changed its name from Kearny Savings to something else. When I think of success and prosperity , the town of Kearny doesn't come to mind. When I think of blue collar and soccer, I think of Kearny. Just a rant from a long term holder, since the IPO. And to think I was really pissed when they only gave me 800 and something shares when I wanted to get 5000 at the IPO.

      • Thank your lucky stars that you didn't get all the shares you wanted. This obsolete mgt team and disfunctional board is incapable of improving its own mess let alone taking on another loser. Are the shareholders happy? NO. Thats why the stock is tanking. The shareholders are just plain fed up with how poorly the stock has performed after many unhappy years. Replacing John H. and Greg M. with Obama and Pelosi would be an improvement. Even they couldn't screw it up any worse.
