Strange ride for this small community bank holding company. I originally bought this as an short-term arbitrage play for the merger of GRAN, but I didn't sell my converted shares because I was trying to avoid the initial rush of exits. I then failed to notice the strange run-up to $29 last year, and now the stock came back down to under $10. The CEO and CFO made sizable open market purchases in Dec. 2012 at $11. The stock now trades at $9.77 and I think it is a high risk/reward entry despite the insider buys. However, the Carlyle Group and Oak Hill Capital both have large positions of common stock, and I can't imagine they would allow this to go down without a fight (either sale to a larger bank or some other proposition).

Small, regional, multi-branch banking company that could really take off with a change in top management (which probably won't happen). But since the price has deteriorated a lot, it can only go up from here.
