A bank out of Oakland Maryland. It has a pretty good balance sheet. This bank didn’t dilute at all during the recession. Thinks they will start paying a dividend after 2017, and the stock should start to move up.

Thinks it can double from here. Has had a nice little run lately. A lot of this is because if interest rates go up banks usually do better. A beautifully run little bank. It was so much a better Buy when it was $8, and doesn’t know if he would chase it at its current level.

Capitalization rates were down a bit, but are still very good. Prior to the recession it paid $0.20 a quarter as a dividend. They don’t pay a dividend now, but thinks they will start one before the end of 2016. He can see this tripling.

A small US bank. They are making a little bit of money. Have just over 6 million shares outstanding. They did not dilute at all in the recession. This is one of his favourites.

This is a really small US bank. He has a target price of better than $20 on it. There are only 6 million shares. They did not dilute at all during the recession. He suspects they will restart a dividend before the end of 2016. A well-run company with good capitalization ratios. When it moves, it could actually move fairly quickly because of the share count.

Good financial ratios and capitalization ratios. If they start repaying a dividend he can see a cent or two a quarter and then moving up from there. Thinks they will start the dividend this year. A nicely managed company.

One of the beauties is that they have 6 million shares outstanding. They did not increase the share count during the recession when they were having some difficulties. Capitalization ratios are good. BV is 13+, and if you knock out the goodwill, it is 11+. Prior to the recession, they paid a dividend of $.20 a quarter, so he thinks that before the end of 2016, they will re-implement the dividend. Not very liquid.
