Bank of the Ozarks, Inc. Message Board

    The share price seems to be cruising nicely north of the 50 and 200 day moving averages. Given the consistently low short interest rates, I suspect the spread between borrowing and lending, coupled with Ozark's ability to execute, will result in another good quarter. Unless there's unexpected bad news, I anticipate little occasion for the share price to go below 24 in the near term.

    • TSN is the correct answer, you should play on Jeopardy, us in the south can only marvel at such wisdom...

    • Hi Huskies! This posting is both on/off topic for OZRK.

      First the off: If you bank at SOV, are you aware that they outsource to India after midnight? I just found this out (over on the WB board) and verified, via phone calls, that this is true. WB (thank heavens) does not.

      On topic: Assuming/hoping OZRK does *not* outsource C.S. to India, it might be able to increase business in the future, and now, by making it clear in printed/radio or TV/their web site that they do *not* outsource.

      Maybe some people don't care, but I gag over the idea that someone in another country has access to private information on me. Outsourcing financial accounts is not a good idea in my book and is probably something that a person would want to take into consideration when opening an account.

        I don't bank at SOV. However, I read a lot about SOV last week when they snapped up Waypoint. ...Another smaller central Pennsylvania bank has been "bigee sized."

        I agree with your comments on outsourcing of banking. As an investor, I guess SOV can say they're margin-minded. I wouldn't want my bank doing it, though. But then there are lots of reasons I like banks as an investor, but don't like them as a customer.

        I doubt OZRK is at the outsourcing to India juncture, but then....isn't using the Arkansas labor force the same as outsourcing to a third world country?

        PLEASE NOTE....The above is a crude attempt at humor!!
