starting to see june qtr data- appears so far that various index funds bought about 96,000 shares @$88. Also reported (and confirmed on there website) M3F, Inc a hedge fund dealing primarily in banks & financial institutions, bought 38,941 shares also @$88. This is .25% of there portfolio. And, the State Teachers of Ohio bought 4500 shares at similar price. A few of the other institutions disposed of relatively small amount of shares. This still doesn't account for the over 200,000 shares traded but maybe more will be reported in next couple of weeks
Oh, and did you see BERK (apparently)filed a lawsuit in the Libor scandal. Fascinating how this could have impacted them to such an extent to warrant a lawsuit.
One interesting data point is that per their latest call report, released at the end of July, it states that they have paid a $4 mil dividend on the common. That would equate to about $0.27/share. Obviously it hasn't been announced yet or paid, so presumably it's been accrued for the end of Q2 and will be included in the 10-Q whenever released. Not sure what else to make of it.
I forgot that the call report relates to the bank not the holding company. So the dividend would be one paid up from the bank. Hopefully though that means a dividend on the stock will be announced. Sorry for any confusion.
