Thank you Captain Obvious. They definitely do. They are selling affiliates at a premium to book - raising cash, and reducing assets. 2 Challenges are: 1) how many banks can they sell to raise $?; and 2) it will increase their NPA (a buyer isn't buying the junk loans) and can their remaining earnings stream deal with it?
I'm holding what I have, and if it drops significantly, I will probably accumulate some more. Even at 50% discount to book, the organization is worth probably $7-$9.
