+ Watch OZRK
on My Watchlist
The Company provides a range of retail and commercial banking services.
The Company owns a state-chartered subsidiary bank that conducts banking operations through 166 offices in Arkansas, Georgia, North Carolina, Texas, Florida, Alabama, South Carolina, New York and California. It IS one of the best regional banks in the Nation “period”. It has ranked in the top 5 among regional banks and number 1 for the past two consecutive years. With continued growth and brilliant management this is one stock to buy, hold and forget. It may not make high returns as with some speculative picks, but even with a market correction this one stock that would remain in my portfolio. The market it filled with uncertainties, and picking the right stocks to maintain a balance in your portfolio is essential. Complete your own D&D
Consistent management, efficiently operated, careful lending practices
I like regional banks, more nimble, better balance sheets, and huge consolidation/takeover potential if they get big enough.

FDIC assisted acquisitions will continue to drive tremendous growth in a relatively low-risk fashion since the FDIC covers a large percentage of potential losses on assets acquired. OZRK has been a consistent and conservative performer for many years. Great net interest margin (6%) and a solid dividend too (1.5%).
great balance sheet, great area to grow in,low exposure to sub-prime write-downs and bad loans.picking up a lot of banks on the cheap with fdic help.
Just a feeling, high with vector vest
strong bank. strong fundamentals. buy
another bank WATCH listappreciated & book value over 1 & nothing special geographicallystill need to check asset growth & core deposit levels
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT REGIONAL BANK AND HAS PERFORMED VERY WELL THROUGH THIS ECONOMIC DOWNTURN. NOW IT IS BEING ADDED TO THE S & P SMALL CAP INDEX WHICH GIVES IT EVEN MORE EXPOSURE. IT WOULDN'T SURPRISE ME TO SEE A MAJOR BANK ACQUIRE BANK OF THE ORZAKS SOME TIMEIN THE NEAR FUTURE.
Although I live in the state this bank is based (I have no positions in it though) I do believe most financials will have continuing issues that will pressure their underlying equities. I made the right call selling off my Regions (RF) @ $37 and sense that even banks without much CDO exposure (likely few and far between) will have a trying period of little confidence during 2009.
Perfect short set-up
It's nice that they increased their dividend, but considering they have 700 million in construction loans on their books I think I'll pass...
OZRK has great leadership and is a solid bank. This stock is at a 52 week low and is prepted to take off. This is the time to jump back into this stock as it is a great company and I expect to see insiders buying back into the stock at this price.
Bank of the Ozarks faces little competition in their region. They have performed better than their peers with the hits all the banks have taken, and I expect future growth plus strong dividends over the next year or so.It wouldn't suprise me to see OZRK fall in the next few weeks though, as the financial sector is simply impossible to predict right now.
Despite the agressive expansion this year, OZRK managed to keep its performance ratios well above peers'. In addition, I don't see any notable competitors in Arkansas. Look for OZRK to steal market share from the BAC and RF.
