Hyper-Contrarian it looks like. With all these new rules and regulations coming out from the government due to the credit crunch, financial advisory consultants will get more business as businesses and firms evaluate what they can and can not do now.

I believe that HRB will bounce back stronger than its competitors even though they are prohibited from offering the RAL product. The only players left for the RALs are the regional banks lending on credit criteria only. It is expected that the FDIC will follow suit of the OCC and prohibit regional banks from lending against tax returns. That puts HRB in the drivers seat because they have thier own bank and can offer short term signature loans not tied to the tax return; yet still offer the repayment option of using the emerald card that is loaded through thier RAC product from the tax proceeds of the refund. This should put them back as the industry leader in the years to come.
