blow them away, miss ? Raise dividend ? Buy back shares ? Any thoughts ?
Yes we will beat, I believe. I am also holding until years end, or maybe longer, and think $16 a share by 2013 if they raise the dividend $16 for sure.
.40 vs .35 didn't see what the Rev's were?
Holding a lot of fitb and ftb-pa as well as puts and believe fitb will be fifteen by years end. They will meet or exceed .35 and will move to increase div. for next Q. Plan on it.
Wow $15 by year-end, those are some huge expectations. It was $15 two freaking years ago. The fact you are willing to hang on to this crap-hole with no real price appreciation proves your imbecility.
I think we'll beat-seems to be the trend with other financials. Unfortunately FITB is at the mercy of the sector as a whole. So even if it beats nicely, underlying sector may keep it down. I agree that $15 is a reachable year-end target.
We'll see tomorrow. History says we'll make it....
