Anyone else hoping this won't happen? I just looked at TBFC's latest quarterly statement.

Gotta think the stock would be doing better if it weren't tethered to EGRP, not that I have anything against them.

YES! I thought the same. Sure, if I had to be bought,
I'd probably pick E-Trade, but it seems to me that TBFC
was growing at ~100% a year, why would you want to sell out
to something currently growing at zero??
OKOK, so that's not quite fair, but Etrade's business segment
hasn't been growing since last Winter.

Once the buyout was announced, my heart sank.
