Easy to be the tallest midget, ie, stock looks better than it is because previous management avoided market/sub-prime and CRE pitfalls and competitors have been on the shoals. Current management trying to grow to appease analysts but bank is too small to have significant infrastructure to grow. NEOhio is a dead market and customer base/market is aged. Business community also dead in NEOhio. Foray into Chicago with a gnat's presence won't move the needle. If you want safety this is it. If you want growth...forget it.

Although I am giving it an underperform call in the short term, I believe this is a strong long term play. I think over the long term, this is an excellent play with lots of potential with relatively low risk. There are much better stocks in the short term though.

Trusting Cramer on this one. This bank is solid, no question about that. Whether they aspire to the greatness Cramer sees for them in his crystal ball, I don't know. However, their financials indicate they could.

Solid bank that doesn't appear to be hurt by the financial crunch. Paying over 6% dividends. Trades in small range, but I think it's just overlooked.
