Pacw remains a mystery stock. It's a low volume trader's stock and has really not shown any substantial growth in it's stock price for a very long time. I'm sure traders are making money, but not long term holders. And, at a PE of 30 plus a $1.00 dividend (2.3%) it's not making anyone rich. Well, maybe the Directors of the company. I suspect Wall Street analyst are already looking for PACW's next acquisition and it may not turn out as good as CSE next time. Seems that their just out earnings should have been much stronger than they were. I'm looking to sell at some point. My problem is I can't find any other stocks that look ready to fly. Anyone take note of NYCB their 42 consecutive quarterly divy of $1.00 which is in the 6% plus range? JohnnyH: What say ? I suspect your disappointed as well?
