Bank Mutual Corporation has picked themselves up off the floor and are moving forward. A quick overview: they are a Savings and Loan based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They operate 79 banking offices in Wisconsin and 1 in Minnesota.

this stock is a great turnaround story that is well worth listening to.
To keep it simple, here are the reasons I like this company. (in no particular order)

1. First, from a technical standpoint, the stock has pulled back more than 10% after a torrid 42% move since Mid December of last year. (the whole industry has pulled back in the last couple of weeks).

2. BKMU earnings growth has increased substantially in the past year in comparison to the previous 3.

3. In their most recent earnings report, they beat estimates by 25%

4. Earnings have increased 62% year over year. (it's all about the earnings)

5. They have paid a dividend every quarter since the year 2000.

6. Profit margins at this savings loan have increased substantially in the past 4 quarters.

7. For what it's worth, they are ranked a strong buy at Zack's.

And finally from a macro perspective, there is a trend away from the mega supermarket bank to a smaller, more intimate type of institution, where consumers feel like they are treated more like people than a number. It's also true that a large majority of customers felt like they got screwed by "the banks" in the financial crisis which is a contributing factor to the trend from large to small. And don't think the large banks aren't aware of this, have you noticed how much nicer Bank of America is nowadays?

In anticipation of the eventual rebound of the financial sector. A little early for bottom feeding, but I am just indiscriminately putting all stocks that are tagged S&L.

As of Jan 31st, 2008 the stock has finally recovered (around 20% in last month) However, new challenges still await for it to be a winner. There are some historical resistances around 12.75$. In my opinion, the stock should now (in early february) rest a bit maintaining over 11.40 ( better if above its current EMA(200) ) R.S.I. just crossed the 68-69 % level and M.F.I. is yet low enough to have plenty of room to grow. If this stocks breaks the 13$ level at its close some of this days/weeks the only limit will be the sky (it's at its 5yrs+ maximums now) The other side of the coin is that being so historically high can make the bears wake up. However, my position is still bullish/long . Having in mind the big problems banks are having now in the U.S. this one is surprisingly on top. Just lets cross fingers and wait ;-)
