    Can Some Explain...

    Why is the price of AF on a steady climb. It seems to be fully valued based on next years earnings. The market must anticipate some sort of deal is in the offing.

    I just wish they would announce a deal already! Are you listening WM?

    • This time may be different. The currency for acquiring banks has re-flated. AF has been doing things i.e. redeeming preferred stock to position itself for a takeover. In fact, they have not been an acquiror in some time. It appears they are looking for an end game.

      I have to believe they are in talks with WM right now. I would sure like to double my dividend and have appreciation at the same time!
