I'll only invest in STD under the following conditions:

 

1) I am using protection

2) They implement a huge buyback program

 

I know, an unfortunate ticker.

 

Whether they continue to return cash to shareholders via dividends or buybacks, I will be happier with the more efficient of the two.  I will leave the emotional/religious preferences to other people like you.

Glad to see he likes Banco Santander -- I bought some recently.

 

Only 16% of their assets in Spain/Portugal and most Latin American operations in the top 3 by country with ROEs in the 25% range. Currently priced at 1x BV.

 

Precisely.

 

I hope you get your next European scare (I will buy more).
