    What seems to be missing in the discussion

    How can they double the dividend when there is little net loan growth and they are just turning their cash over? If they have that much free cash now to double the dividend, can they then continue to grow it? And why should we care what Starnes says about credit costs? Their marginal cost of funding is zero right now (said King) and cannot get any better. Run off of bad loans they should not have made in 2006 is old news and the market has already priced that data point into the stock a long time ago.

      I've answered your questions repeatedly in previous posts. Suppose I can talk till I'm blue in the face. Believe what you want to believe.
