Turn around play showing, significant EPS growth over past 12 mos despite very poor margins. Improving operations to even category average margins should lead to significant price growth.

Should be a logical takeover target for larger regional bank.

United Community Banks, Inc had quite a strong start back in 2002, progressively growing from roughly $15 to $33 dollars in 2007. They were hit hard during the recession, dropping down to $2.40, and then to $1.25 in mid-november 2010. In the past month, as the economy seems to be recovering faster than we imagined it would, UCBI has nearly doubled from $1.25 to roughly $2.40. UCBI is a strong company that has proven the ability to return a profit. Now that the economy is picking back up, I believe UCBI has the absolute potential to fully recover and deliver an outstanding return within the next few years.

UCBI IS A GOOD, COMMUNITY RESPONSIVE BANK WITH GOOD MANAGEMENT POLICIES THAT HELP INSULATE IT SOMEWHAT FROM THE PROBLEMS OF THE LARGER AMERICAN BANKS THAT ARE IN DIFFICULTIES. IT HAS BEEN UNDERVALUED FOR SOME TIME, AND ISN'T IT INTERESTING THAT WHEN THE SEC CHANAGED THE NAKED SHORTS TRADING RULE THE STOCK PRICE BEGAN RISING TOWARD A REASONABLE PRICE AGAIN! IT IS THE 3RD LARGEST BANK HOLDING COMPANY IN GA, AND SHOULD MAINTAIN ITS MARKET EDGE WITH THE MANAGEMENT IT HAS IN PLACE.

United Community Bank is a regional bank based in the southeast. I earned this stock by default. A brand new bank, Rockdale National, was instituted in my town in 2000 and I had the opportunity to buy into it during the IPO. Being a little leery I bought only 100 shares and now I wish I had bought ten times that much. The bank opened with just one branch and opened a second branch in town and the stock split within a year. The next year, they opened a branch in a neighboring county and changed their name fo Liberty National Bank and the value began to increase. Shortly thereafter, Liberty National was purchased by United Community Bank and I chose the option to have my stock re-issued in the new company. It has hovered around the same price this year but this is the best bank I have ever worked with. When you walk in, they know you by face/name, they go the extra mile in customer service. They have a lot of assets but still seem to care about the little man. I believe that some day a large national bank will see how they are increasing in value and snap them up. I dread that day because then it means my "small town" bank will be lost. But I also look forward to the day because I am banking on my small original investment at the IPO paying off handsomely.

This bank is actively seeking to become the #1 Community Bank in Georgia. Assets have grown from 6.5 billion to 7.7 billion in the past year while preserving their cash reserves.

I've owned this stock for over 30 years (staring when it was just the Dawson County Bank in Dawsonville, GA). Lots of growth and expansion over the last decade or so. There have been numerous splits in the last ten years, and I've watched this stock maintain a gradual, measured growth.
