Up 28.4% over same quarter in 97. I am a little surprised the stock did not jump a little bit more. This stock continues to look cheap and low risk. These are two things I like in a company. Check "news" under ESF for the story. Good luck to all.
Those of you who have invested in STD are an elite group. You look for good investments wherever they are. I don't think the general public/investor really knows anything about STD. You will note that the volume in STD is never really large. What this creates is less volatility and a slow appreciation of the stock. Lets keep our fingers crossed that no major financial crises hits Spain or South America. I hope Spain being a part of the new Euro Dollar will have a positive effect on STD. Any thoughts on this?
Relax, Spain has been part of the Euro currency for years now. Even if the Euro failed institutions like Banco de Santander would not suffer. They are as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar with or without monke (the Rock has both not STD) Lately Spain has boomed. Compared to 1992 it has come a very long way. Real Estate is up, the stock market has moved faster that the Dow and in general you have a feeling of optimism. Santander was strong even when none of the above was true. Keep accumulating... Buenas noches
Hi guys. After following JD's reccomendations for 2 years (without buying anything he reccom'd) I finally bt this stock just 2 mths ago. It is only now making money for me. I could just kick myself for not jumping in sooner. Frankly I am scared to buy any USA or Cdn banks - they gotta be topping off by now and this spanish bank gets me into a different market area. Does anybody know the silicon investor "address" for the JD chat line??
