Trustco has whethered the challenging 2009 climate relatively well, has a nice deposit base, a good branch network for future growth, and remains an acquisition candidate. If Wall Street starts to favor banks I expect TRST stock will reach $7.50 to $8 without much resistance.All things considered TRST is a decent buy here at $6.
Don't forget that the executives of our company, one of the greatest regionals in the history of US banking, have a serious business agenda. Certainly the stewardship of Trustco, and the protection of our interests as stockholders, deserves adequate compensation.
Trustco still has its strong Capital Region base, a great foundation. Add to that the Florida branches, which are starting to bear fruit, and the investment opportunity in TRST becomes clear. TRST in 2010 for nice price appreciation, yes. Albanymanlooking, I wish you the best for finding a job. But, I question your chances of finding one if you waste so much of your time here on the TRST message board. This place is for investors to want to make money, not you.
You are looking since you were fired from your job as a Trustco bank teller ? Do not despair, you probably did not have the aptitude for the work. Try something else. Janitorial maintenance may be a better vocation for your skill set.
