    ARK Banks

    OZRK has enjoyed a nice climb recently. The purchase of First Commercial (another ARK bank) should only make the current price even more attractive. Comparative P/E's would easily push OZRK's price into the mid- or high-30's with room to grow. Anyone else have the same opinion?

    • I actually lived in Ozark, Ar when George Gleason moved to town, bought The Bank of Ozark, and started building it. I would love to have some idea what his plans are for the next ten years as he is still a young man (approx. 45). I think I would have to sell if the stock hits 35 in the next 6 months but would be happy to hold it longer term otherwise. Instead of being a buyout candidate, they could attempt a buyout of a bigger bank. I think there are a number of interesting possibilities.
