  • I am curious about your opinion of fair market value of GSBC? I gather the following: GSBC earned .79 per share last quarter, which is full fledged a "normalized" EPS. I can't see them earning much more without expanding operations and entering new markets. They are currently at $32 a share. USB, meanwhile, has actually higher ROA and ROE but they have scale. They also earned $.80 a share. BBT meanwhile has been earning around $.60-.70 a share. Both USB and BBT trade at higher prices than GSBC. Why is this so? GSBC maintainied it's dividend during the height of the 2008 financial crisis, and bought banks during the downturn. I have been a fan of GSBC and it's management since learning about them I 2009, and will continue to buy GSBC in the years ahead. If 2008 showed us who the weaklings and stalwarts are, it tells me GSBC will be a well managed bank in the decades ahead, so long as a Turner is in charge.

    The article has no smoking gun. I expect a selloff at the beginning of the week though.
