Easy SmelkyKid....ISB is a great bank but it's no HCBK. They are probably a better run bank than PFS or KRNY according to my sources but the question is PRICE. At 54% (like HCBK) it's a nobrainer. At 90% or more, it's FULLY VALUED.
We'll have to see.
P.S. Latest I hear is that $25K for a fill at KRNY...my how things change... a week ago, folks were saying $5K !!
ouch! you cut me to the quick! It's true I'm a negative thinker, in fact this weekend I'll be worrying that the Kearny deal is delayed because they are making them reprice and resolicit at a higher valuation, and if they do, all the other deals will be priced to the point that you shouldn't buy them!
Have a nice weekend, I won't.
