Was nice to see. I was waiting for that move. When the credit card crisis hits in the next six months or so (amex already showing the beginning signs) WBS might not be in all that bad of shape. This might not be a bad long play. What concerns me is the reputation outside of CT is poor.
In MA they are non-existent outside of a very small footprint. The People's acquisition has been a complete disaster for WBS as nobody on the South Shore even knows they are around.
