You will know if management is going to turn this operation around if you see merger activity decline. Analysts were expecting almost $4 in earnings in 2000. Now they expect $1.50 and my stock reflects that earnings level. If they get on with business, and forget buying what others are not willing to sell without large increases in price (but not value), then we will be rewarded. If they continue to pig out on mergers and debt, then $1.50 may be too high for them (based on their previous performance).
