    • Let's say the Bank isn't going to be sold soon. Say they sign a deal with Kenny Chesney to appear at the annual meeting and put it in a Press Release (they might need to say you need to own or subscribe to some minimum number of shares to attend this part)... so many people would be buying stock the price would be 25+ by tomorrow. Plus it would be pretty easy for the Bank to swing this financially ... maybe have the meeting later and skip the lunch ... have beer and snacks instead ... reduce the dividend a $.01 ... they could get this done very easily! Hope they do something to juice the stock and improve the annual meeting at the same time ... it's getting very boring anyway!

    • I'm sure he doesn't take "funny money".....but who cares when ya have the Towne Bank Band that can rise to the occasion...I'd rather hear them anyway....VaS

    • Too bad TowneBank will probably be sold before they sign a deal with Kenny Chesney to perform ... wonder if he will take part of his fee in TOWN stock ...


      Gee ... I hope TOWN isn't bought out soon ... I was really hoping to see Kenny Chesney sing "Back Where I Come From" at the next annual meeting. Plus, remember this is TowneBank; no cost is too great ... FREE CORONA BEER FOR ALL!!!

    • Connection?...hey,maybe town financed Rick's or we're talking some real action...I wonder what the Bone-Us will be for subscribing to the pfd offering/..maybe a pole-dance or lap-dance from smart-cute-kristen...I'm in for a couple hundred,but only if she looks like Sly(back then.... hmmmmm...OK,maybe now...she has some nice,perky....well,you know...VaS

    • "Probably why Barclays Global Investors UK Holdings, Ltd. just reported to the SEC on 7/25 that they bought 563,607 TOWN shares..."

      I also noticed that Barclays also owns stock in Rick's Cabaret... maybe the young "Warren Buffett of Churchland" is on to something ... what's this mysterious connection between TOWN and RICK stock? Why so many common owners?


      Probably why Barclays Global Investors UK Holdings, Ltd. just reported to the SEC on 7/25 that they bought 563,607 TOWN shares (I hear country music is big in the UK):

    • Ok, let's say TowneBank won't be sold ...


      That's the good thing about a bank with huge deposit growth and high expenses ... financials are misleading as to the true value of the TowneBank franchise.

    • SELL!..any deal would be LOW_BALL..probably below BOOK;lower than today's price...SELL...VaS

    • "Plus, I have been reading this message board and there is some pretty strong rumor/evidence that the bank might have been up for sale earlier this year and could be sold soon ... put all that together and this stock should be worth $__________ (yikes!)"

      Guess the shorts weren't counting on credible evidence emerging that a sale could be in the works. Assume shorts normally check insider trades, but probably didn't on this, since TOWN evidently doesn't file with the SEC. I better take my sell limit order off ... I would hate to see the stock price blast through my limit on Monday morning ... if they can even start TOWN stock trading ... good chance this stock won't even open Monday morning ... I assume there will be a big imbalance of orders!
