    Losses for the second quarter dropped by nearly 39%....nonperforming loans were 44% lower year over year...
    ....any thoughts?

    • I understand what your saying but at the same time they have enough liquidity to get through this rough patch. I still believe that people in the rural community have strong ties to there local banks and it is one sector of the economy that is doing well.

    • Auto Sales up in August.....people are loans
      are half as much as home in the rural communities!

      • Your comments on agriculture and auto is accurate. But your not looking deep enough at their recent 10K. Nonperforming loans are down. But how did they accomplish it? They aren't back to performing. They charged them off hence LARGE reduction to allowance. Did you notice nonperforming asset ratio? Hmmmm about same as before ... why is that?

        Oh they moved these nonperforming loans to OREO. So now if they haven't valued them properly when they took the chargeoff because they are being optimistic about selling the property then the loss will be dollar for dollar off of profit ...

        Kind of like the $1 million or so adjustment they took in 2nd quarter to sell something.

        Also, go look at the new disclosures for loans .... $0.12 on the dollar for nonperforming loans in construction and development loans. Strange .... last time I checked this is the area of loan portfolio with greatest duress and they are reserving $0.12 for it when most other financial institutions are reserving $0.20 to $0.30.

        Are they through it?

    • Centrue (formally Union Bank )with the majority of the banks in the farming communities should see some serious upside in busines activity in the next year or so...I think this will
      lead to renewed like to buy and they
      have the backing to take out loans!

    • You asked....

      My thoughts are that the FDIC will soon show up on a Friday morning and put this dying dog (TRUE) out of its misery. Still losing money, and still has substandard loan portfolio.
