Florida excluded, HBHC operates in markets that have fared relatively well through the recession (TX, LA, MS, AL), which translates into a strong and stable revenue engine. Their solid balance sheet enables strong growth potential, both organic and by acquisition. Dividend yield doesn't hurt either.

During the savings and loans crisis, many depositary institutions failed. The credit crisis is much bigger and WIlbur Ross thinks regional banks are in big trouble.

While right now, unfortunately, it appears Hancock is suffering from being too defensive in its lending, they have a secure and stolid operation. They are not risk takers, which won't yield greatly in the short term (thank you Katrina), but slow and steady always wins the race. I don't see HBHC dropping much below 35 this quarter, unless another unforeseen disaster strikes, and expect small but steady earnings growth for at least another year before they start lending less reticently. Once they feel they've secured a base, they'll pick up focus on expanding their market of operation. My $.02. What do y'all think?

Stock price is going the wrong direction, there appears to be some internal cultural issues going on within the company, specifically employee morale.
