not that anyone is asking but I am still here ;)
although I wish they would announce a plan on dealing with this issue - I am still holding a ton of FBS-PA
I take comfort in the fact that the dividends are cumulative and compounded
one of the hardest thing to do is stock picking is coming up with a realistic valuation - not the case here - I know they value and I know they will pay it
also the TARP debt has zero to do with reality - this debt issue is clearly defined and well regulated (and publicly traded)
if the US Government wants to dump their debt (which is secondary to mine) then that was up to them - back in the real word (St Louis) First Bank is making money and will be REQUIRED to settle this according to terms or an offer could be offered and people could accept or decline that offer - on a side note the weather here is FANTASTIC!
I'm still here with you m8, also, and I'm a believer. A bit stunned at why someone is selling right now and has a lot for sale.
may I ask what your number is for September 30th in accrueds?
