The October 99 was a stocksplit and not a cash dividend - when have they paid a cash dividend? Wouldn't it be about time to look at a cash dividend since their earnings can well afford it and they do not seem to be in a buying mood and not large enough to be bought for a high premium - their executive salaries seem to be high enough so what about us shareholders - ?
bok is earning 17% on equity which is a lot more than one can earn after tax with a dividend. i have been a customer of bok for over 25 years and have found them to be a first class operation. they beat the pants off nyc banks in customer service and customer satisfaction.
