well obviously this is a heavily followed message boarddoesnt compare to my other favorites dell and hdibut thats ok is anyone else out there?
I'm here, and happy to find someone else at this board. I had previously posted here, thinking others would join in, but you are the first! What's your take on this company?T.
i bank there and have for yearsconservative, focused on expansion and growth, consistently profitable not going to do anything like the dot.coms but a good place for long term investors
I was wondering, do you view this as a take over bank, or one that is going to be acquiring other smaller ones? I know they have done some expansion, but conservatively, as you mention.
if they ever do get bought it will be at a very strong premiumthe folks running it want to expand steadily across central illinois, being dominant in their market, maintain community banking and locally empowered loan officers, expand on relationships as they move into insurance and investment brokerage. as a finance manager at a local car dealership who has occasional opportunity to meet with bank officers i know theyre smart enough to not spit on a big pot of money but that thats also not at all what theyre looking for
to answer your question i see them buying other banks as the opportunity arises
