well I ca not strongly disagree with your comment(s). But let me suggest that 1) CFR brags about not accepting any TARP funds. And that is great. Furhter Frosty is now state chartered. So with both those CFR should have less restrictions, mandates etc etc etc. nd a good (not strong mind you) economy at its bank I think cfr could be doing a bit better.
Salvation here is the reasonable divd as opposed to....well most anything nowadays! GL!
point is that we still do business with TARP banks. Like it or not, CFR is scruntinized in a similar way as the big boys. Banks, all of them, now are managed by the gov't to an extent. Granted, this institution weathered the storm better than the category in general, but is still under the thumb of the regulators.
not to be argumentative (b/c it changes nothing) but by your statement CFR gained little by filing a state charter. And sorry but I do not understand your comment "point is we still do business with TARP banks." Care to shed some light on that? tia!
