Up 10%. They used to pay a dividend of 24 cents before the great recession. He expects them to raise dividends soon. Management team is good, and their capitalization ratio is good. Could see a dividend hike before 2020. Interest rates are going down so people should be cautious, but is hopeful.

(A Top Pick June 8, 2017. Down 1.97%). He bought it two years ago. It’s one of the only banks he has that hasn’t gone up well in the past year. There is a lot of potential upside.

He paid $8 and change and it now trades at $11 and change. They never diluted the shares during the recession. They just reported a quarter where they made money. He is happy to sit with the shares he has. If they increase the dividend that will help a lot. Interest rates going up will help the banking sector.
