I predict a run up to earnings, great report on May 2 and possible dividend announcement, and another leg up. We've only just begun rebounding after the financial crisis, so I think the market will trend upwards for years. I'm all in with the warrants and expect to see $60's in the next few years (and over $100 for common).
Agreed. All excess capital should go toward buybacks for now, especially while the stock is trading below tangible book. That will maximize shareholder value. That said, I wouldn't complain about getting a dividend.
