In the 2008 first half, mortgage originations rose 50 percent from 2007. And yet its balance sheet is pristine. "Only 328 out of 79,929 loans are nonperforming at the end of the second quarter," he said." "The average Hudson City branch has about $138 million in deposits, almost twice the average for FDIC-insured banks. Hudson City's stock, is up nearly 50 percent since last July...last year he was paid a total of $8.45 million, and his shares in the bank are worth about $114 million,"
