Pretty fairly valued at this level. If you are holding it for yield and you like the bank, just continue to collect the dividends.

Buyout is a possibility but expects the new CEO will try to work things out first. The offer would have to be pretty decent and there are also political considerations. If people stopped talking about this and he could see a bit of a bottom forming, then he would be interested.

This one is pretty dead. Company is slowly being dismembered. Selling off divisions.

Sells the equipment to broadcasters, radio and TV, and is also in the digital cinema. Last year was not great for movies and audience numbers were the worst since 1995. Broadcasters have generally been cautious on spending. He is hoping it will pick up around the London Olympics.

Probably pretty fairly valued right and $.81. Company has disappointed investors frequently. Last year had record revenues but still lost money. They need to figure out how to improve margins. Environment right now is very good as farmers have had excellent incomes over the last couple of years and can afford the product. They need to figure out how to sell into that market for a more consistent profit.
