1. CROIC (if it even works for bank stocks?) is sitting around 7%. Not great. But when I do a DCF using 80% of CROIC as the growth rate, I get a value of about $20/share. It’s sitting at $11.17.2. P/E of around 10 confirms the potential cheapness of it3. Management is awesome. They didn’t go for all the craziness of the housing boom.

I love your comment on its value. I wish you had been at the stockholders mesting (4/18/2013) ?? I was!! Hermance (head of HCBK) started his career with M&T & gave them a "goldmine". MNT did not have a single Branch in NJ, and IF it had been open for BID, with its Price & Reputation,many banks would have jumped at the opportunity?? MNT; a "friend" in their corner?? Hermance's "Parachute" a Seat @ MNT; he had been on "sick leave"?? Info. ALL on "FOOLs" columns??
