    As we close out the year. I see that going back 16 years to the day, this stock is up 1%. On an annualized basis, then, the capital appreciation in the stock price is essentially ZERO. So for long term holders, all you have gotten is the dividend. Looking back over those past 16 years, the dividend payment has averaged +/-$1.10 per share, meaning that the annualized total return for this stock, for the past 16 years has been something like 2.9%. 16 years ago you could have bought the US 30-year treasury bond and locked in a 5% yield. What is up with that? Yet the CEO makes $10M per year? Why doesn't the Board simply force the sale of this bank? How do they get long term holders the returns they deserve? 2.9% per annum is completely unacceptable for 16 years. If you add in the pernicious effects of inflation, the real inflation-adjusted return on this stock has been ZERO. So if you are a patient long term investor (i.e. sucker) who has held this stock for 16 years and adjust for the devaluation of the dollar over the same period, this company has delivered NOTHING.
