2014 – Santa Cruz County Bank ranked 115 th out of 851 institutions in American Banker Magazine's "Top Performing 200 Community Banks & Thrifts in the United States " based upon 3-year average return on equity
...just how critical community banks are to the livelihoods of families, businesses, and communities all across our great state," said Heitkamp. "They help hardworking families buy homes, provide loans for small businesses and farms, and help rural communities grow and thrive. I will continue to work to improve our housing finance system and address regulatory burdens that affect community banks in rural areas throughout North Dakota. Promoting local economic growth is critical to our state's success and I'll fight to make sure community banks can make North Dakota an economic model for the nation."
"It was fantastic to see so many people try their hand at mosaics and join in the project" he said
Zacks’ analyst wrote, "CPKF’s second quarter net earnings rose $0.1 million, or 5%, to $1.9 million, while diluted EPS grew by $0.03, or 5%, to $0.58 from $0.55 posted a year ago. We have excluded a $1.1 million pretax gain ($0.7 million aftertax, or $0.22 per diluted share) on the sale of securities from year-ago results. This was much better than our estimate, which had called for a $0.4 million decline in net earnings to $1.5 million and an $0.11 drop in diluted EPS to $0.44. The primary reason for the difference between reported results and our estimate was that noninterest income was $0.3 million higher than our projection. The major reasons for the second quarter s gain versus the prior-year quarter were a $0.5 million, or 77%, decline in the provision for loan losses to $150,000 from $650,000 and a 390 basis-point drop in the effective tax rate to 16.4% from 20.3%. These positives were partly offset by a $0.4 million decline in net revenue and a $0.1 million increase in total noninterest expense. In July, CPKF declared a 6-for-5 stock split, while maintaining the quarterly dividend at $0.135. Notably, CPKF was cited by SNL Financial as one of only 20 banks in the country (and only two in Virginia) to increase dividends by at least 2% per year and at least a cumulative 30% over the past five years. CPKF recorded cumulative dividend growth of 51.1% over 2008-2013. In August, CPKF announced that for the seventh consecutive year, Chesapeake Bank had made the American Banker magazine listing of the "Top 200 Community Banks" in the United States. The bank ranked at #28 out of approximately 6,000 community banks in the study (up from #148, when CPKF first broke into the rankings in 2008), based upon its three-year average ROE of 14.07%."
