O’KEEFE: “VALUABLE FRANCHISE”

Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC ADR (RBS) Price: $11.20 on 1/29/14 52-week range: $8.12 – $12.44

“… over the last five years, RBS has been going through a very painful revolution in terms of selling off the toxic assets, de-leveraging the balance sheet, getting the capital ratios better, narrowing the focus on the organization, and today we’re probably 80 to 90 percent through that process. There’s still a little bit more to go, but on the other side of this process, we think a very, very valuable franchise will become apparent through very strong earnings and very high return on equities.” – Daniel O’Keefe
