After hours press release on December loan production and Q4 earnings statement should move FBC on Monday. Q4 earnings should come in north of $1.00 based on guidance. Hopefully the market will reward such performance.
I think we can expect a BIG move Monday. First Call estimates for the quarter are $.78 and the press release hinted that earnings would beat Q4 2001 which were $.95. If earnings come in at $1.00, this is an easy $30.00 stock. Remember too, management approved a sizeable increase in the dividend; knowing that Q4 earnings would be huge!
