New York Community Bancorp (NYCB) management was tight-lipped on its large acquisition search during its earnings call (transcript) this week. Responding to an analyst question, CEO Joe Ficalora only said, "there are many interesting opportunities ... not that this is a very active market." KBW's Collyn Gilbert - who upgraded the shares on March on hope for an accretive acquisition - refrained from asking any questions on the subject.
