    • At this PE, why would anyone? You could almost
      justify a run at FTU with greater upside potential. (I
      realize that you have to use weird math to make that one
      work, but made you think, didn't I?)

      I really
      don't think that's a way (i.e. as a takeover play) to
      make a buck on this stock.

      I still think
      selling into strength (i.e. $35 for me) makes some sense
      although I still plan to hold much for the long hall. If I
      sold some at $35, I would get back in below $27, based
      on a soft landing and falling rates.

      I
      actually think that most financials will rally for the
      next quarter at least as rates fall.

      All IMHO
      of course. See, I told you you should have bought
      FTU at an almost 8% dividend with lots of upside
      potential!

      But, then again, I've been wrong
      before!

      Regards......and why havn't you moved to the other board yet
      WP?
