    Is a "Stock Dividend" in the cards???

    • Well, another 2% stock dividend at BOKF would not surprise me. This is a great company; I was out of the stock for a while, and I am glad to be back in; got the chance during the bearish phase about 2 months ago, though the exact date is not handy at the moment. It sure is a stock that helps you sleep well at night.

      Good luck to all.

      Someday I hope to pay a visit to Tulsa. What is it like, folks?

      • may also be approaching a level where a split could help the stock.

        Management seems to have been happy with the stock selling in the $15-$30 range over the last several years.

        Perhaps that is their preferred range for share price (which would set apart this regional bank from some of the national banks which seem to like share prices in the $30-$50 range).

        Perhaps a 2:1 stock split might be timely as well.

        I've looked at the charts and the share price performance sure looks strange with sudden bursts to higher levels followed by 2-3 year periods of essentially flat share price.

        Do you have any thoughts on that behavior?

        I have to wonder if the large insider ownership and small float may make this stock trade differently than it's big brothers in the banking world.

      • Thanks for the are the first human being I've had contact with on this board....I was beginning to wonder.

        I read with interest about BOKF making its way on to the Forbes 500 list and on to Investor's Business Daily's list of the most "STABLE" companies....which I read perhaps as "BEST MANAGED".


        Investor's Business Daily ranked BOK Financial 25th on its list of the 70 most stable companies for U.S. investors. The Los Angeles-based business newspaper, which circulates nationally, based its ranking on companies with five-year earnings-per-share growth of at least 10 percent. Share prices had to be above $12. BOK Financial had five-year EPS growth of 15 percent. In 2002, the company had EPS growth of 28 percent. The company's shares have traded in the $32-$33 range recently.

        For the first time, Forbes ranked BOK Financial on its list of 500 top public companies. Forbes ranked companies by a composite of sales, assets, profits and market value. BOK Financial was listed No. 493.
