    I think First Internet Bankcorp has a cleaner, more upside financial record. They also pay an 1.1% divie while you wait. Because internet banking is the future, I did buy this one and looked at BOFI before I made my decision. Hope we are both right! Only the future will tell. INBK has a lot less shares and bigger spread because of it. Liquidity is a negative, unless you're holding long term. GL2ALL
