    Curent Valuation Considerations

    I don't would be well received for sure if they could. But basically doubling the current dividend? I don't see it happening. I think they will take a tiered approached to dividend expansion, being ultra conservative. The problem is, when interest rates spike and they need the extra dividend to buttress the stock price, already anemic loan growth will vanish. The long term view here is grim. Shareholders looking for a return to the good old days of stabilized $45/share with a nice dividend yield are going to have to wait for years. The only way I can that equation unfolding is if the dollar simply becomes soooo cheap that all US assets look cheap and foreigners start bidding up the price of all stocks. But then dollar price of gold will be $3500, a gallon of gas will be $6.00, and milk will be $6.00/gallon.
