Once upon time this used to be a lively message board with many posters and exciting discussions and speculations. Although I now hold a small position, I am still among the very few that posts occasionally. What happened to all the old timers? Any speculations about DRL merger/buyout, perhaps involving FBP as it was once speculated here and in the media?
I am also still here and checking from time to time. I still own my commom shares from b4 the converssion.
I was at the meeting. Asked a few questions: CO still pretty far out. It is dependent on the NPAs, which has to come down much more. this is their main objective. Preferreds, will not get paid for the foreseeable future, not until the CO is lifted(dead money for a long time). FBP gaining market share and NII and NIM improving. Everyone was very optimistic about franchise and future.
Good luck to all.
