I appreciated your thoughts. I bought the common stock recently with all your points in mind plus I saw Popular on other US islands. I also considered the incredible infatuation of baby boomers with tropical islands - who could retire and come forever more to P.R., V.I. then of course HI. I even see a resurgence of a high end home and condo market in P.R 5 or so years out. Good for P.R. and BPOP.
The potential for a buyout by a big bank that wants a footprint in the Carribean and a business with ties and knowledge of culture to a growing U.S and island territory Spanish population, is an extremely attractive possibility.
I worked 29 years in Pharma and spent many good days on the island.
