I think, yahoo should just shut the boards down. Maybe they selling opportunities to the spammers, or maybe that's why they gonna go away and get bought out. When it happens, I'll miss what few of the ol' timers that are left here, but, block and report does nothing. Still miss the old days when these boards were relevant to the stocks, not those trying to earn pennies. Or those that just want to toot their own horns with their pretend money and buy buy buy, or told ya to get out calls. But if that kept them insane, when the message boards disappear, what would them losers do?
I would tend to agree. Don't see the feds doing anything with rates in the near future, that will hold down the share price. Now, as to the dividend, depending on the regulators, and with RF's low payout ratio, management and the BOD might surprise us with a 6 cent increase, taking it up to 30 cents per share annually. That would help share price most, and make a chance that support would be above the $8.00 range while we wait on the feds and potential rate increases. A yield above 3.5% might attract some income investors, but all speculations. Figure come April we will hear what to expect in July.
