My family owned a few blocks of IBOC. It used to pay 2 dividends every year plus do a 5 for 4 split yearly. What was so great is its a small town stock (Laredo tx.) after every split it would drop from 50 to 40$ and before next dividend payment it would go right back to 50$ so it was like making 20% yearly plus the 5 to 8% dividend. It was a no brainer. however it seems when online trading became popular stocks like this are impossible to find. Anyway glad to be back trading after a 11 year absence, thanks Gumshoe for steering us away from all the B.S.
