This board is not the most heavily used board that's for sure.
With the FBF buyout today you would think that there would be more interest in CFR. I'm staying long as this bank is gone sooner or later, and hopefully for a decent premium. Central Texas is growth and there are some big banks that would like to be here to participate in that growth.
I've been holding CFR since October, 2001. Bought around $23--it went up to $40 while the rest of the market was floundering, and never went lower than $29 after that. And now we're back at $40 again. Also a decent dividend which has been raised a couple of times. I only wish I had bought more.
I own the stock for the same reason... I think its a good take over target and in the interim it pays a dividend. I heard a rumor, can't tell where from, that WFC might be a candidate for buying out CFR.
