Bank OZK - The Upside Was There, And There's Some Left
My position remaining in Bank OZK is limited, but it's offered significant returns since my last article almost 2 years ago. The company thrived after the pandemic, and the upside for this bank that I noted, following the fall during COVID, realized.

It makes the company a potentially worthy "BUY" - but be careful due to lack of credit rating, some volatility, and attractive other financials.
