Maybe too far south for Provident, but others are on the prowl in The Garden State. Even the poet laureate!

Seriousley, not many southern NJ targets. When 1 goes, it could be a quick meal of the rest. Gotta get in NOW...no time when the headlines appear.

This looks like a cherry about to be picked. A great group of money making branches in the ocean side of New Jersey. would cost a lot to replicate.

OCFC is a boring but quality bank. They've been public for 6-7 years. South Jersey is a steady area and there hasn't been a housing boom that's ready to bust there (except perhaps for a couple of towns on the Northern end of South Jersey but that's not Ocean's bread and butter).

Management continues to buy back stock, expand the franchise, and raise the dividend.

Potential acquirers include: Provident (which has a contiguous footprint of branches); New York Community (their subsidiary, Richmond County Saivngs, bought South Jersey Savings a few years ago); Independence (a few North Jersey acquisitions in the past few years); Staten Island Savings has made a few acquisitions in Jersey as well over the past few years; and of couse, bigger boys like Charter One, etc.
