    I missed the boat on this one. I was too afraid of IPOs…. should’ve risked it at the time. I didn’t consider that this bull market can make even a mediocre company look good, so buying PBB wouldn’t really have been risky.

      I did place my bid on PBB but I guess I was late already and was not able to catch some in the allocation. Well its out there now lets just time and it. PBB could be EW’s rival in their category both are really gearing up for expansion and to penetrate the other markets were the big banks are already in.
