      Great report! As a new client, I appreciate the plain language explanations as to why CMA’s pension adjustments are a potential boon to CMA in the future. I zeroed in on the last paragraphs of the stock valuation, balance sheet and income sections. I’ve never had a great experience with banks. All the ratios can look great until some long time customer’s loans go bust and there need to be additions to the loan loss reserve account. Assuming no loan etc., type surprises, the information here gives one a bit more confidence that there is some room for management to “massage” the numbers. Still need to wrap my mind around all the new concepts, but this information allows one to follow the numbers with greater confidence.
