Dean Withers, President and CEO, commented, "This is our third consecutive year of earnings improvement and, for the first time since 2005, we have achieved record earnings on a nominal basis. While we are pleased with these results, this level of earnings does not reflect our pre-recession performance relative to traditional measures of Return on Assets and Return on Equity." Withers continued, "We are cautiously optimistic that 2013 will result in the further, slow progress in reducing non-performing loans. As I stated in our last quarterly earnings announcement, we are seeing signs of modest improvement in both the local housing and commercial real estate markets. However, we still believe at this time that it is important to build our reserves, as there are still some borrowers that are struggling to recover from the lingering effects of the recession."

Withers stated, "Economic activity in our markets appears to be picking up, as we've seen an improvement in recent loan demand. This improved demand crosses multiple business lines, as we are seeing good growth in our Dealer Finance Division, strong interest in our new Fishersville Loan Production Office and improved loan demand in our established markets. On January 17, 2013, our Board of Directors declared a fourth quarter dividend of $0.17 per share. This is an increase of $.01 per share, compared to the prior year and prior quarter. Based on our most recent trade price of $16 per share, this dividend constitutes a 4.25% yield on an annualized basis. The dividend will be paid on February 8, 2013, to shareholders of record as of January 29, 2013." Highlights of the company's financial performance are included below.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty.
