on 12/31/1998 the price for a share of BBT was $40.31 each. The closing price on 2/5/2016 for a share of BBT stock was $32.06. The dividend per quarter end of 1998 was 17.5 cents per share and the current dividend is 27 cents a share.
In 1998 the Board of Directors and the top executives were getting paid for a growth company and the share price was increasing greatly. What is the current Board of Directors and top Executives getting paid to do?
Just wondering if anyone has current compensation figures verus those in 1998?
Just wonder how much the BOD will give the senior executive team and Kelly KIng for 2015. It might pay the stockholders to pay close attention to the above. This is a team that has missed estimated earnings for all four quarters of 2015. Just how much is that worth to the shareholders (owners) of this company?
BBT is an incompetent country bank. They do not have the vision or the talent to become more efficient and profitable on their own. They buy banks for growth because they can't get it on there own. It's a inbred tobacco bank who's top brass and bench are all educated at ECU.....which they consider to be an Ivy League / High Cotton education. Have you ever heard King speak? That country hick accent is like nails on a chalk board.
Read the Qu'ran to learn the fundamentals of Islam. Mohammed is clear in writings 1,400 years ago or so that Islam is to respect other religions and believers. Yes, there are many arguments trying to drag the message in all sorts of different directions, certainly you can find history to support your prejudices providing you turn a blind eye to 'inconvenient" events. If you look at Christianity (and I am a Christian) you will find murders citing God's will as justification for the assassinations they commit. Apparently they do not care about the prime directives "Judgment is Mine." and "Have no god before Me."
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Sorry, but I am not buying your attempted whitewash of Islam. The "sick individuals" who "pervert" the message are not just a handful of rogue Muslims. My reading of history tells me that ISIS, et al., are simply continuing what Mohammed started in the 7th century. That is, expansion by conquest and gratuitous brutality. And every poll taken on the subject indicates that the sick individuals are supported by a substantial percentage of so-called "moderates".

Sentiment: Strong Buy
I sold BBT a few years ago when they said they wouldn't lower the dividend, then did anyway. To me, that was a credibility issue. It is up $3 since then, but I still stand by my decision. Why invest in a company that you trust their word?
Look at all the financials. Money managers doing their thing. This really is a good bank stock. Jmo!
I'd like this stock better than BAC or C.
ULTIMATE STOCK ALERTS (search them) is the best when it comes to Nasdaq momentum alerts! If you haven’t signed up yet you’re really missing out.
Ooops...should have sold. Ooops again..he says he cant. Ooops! How many years to get those back? What are his returns now? KK loves BobFatGas because KK makes $$$$ and BobFartGas gets nothing for 20 years.
Bbt does not need any more mergers until they become more effficient. mgt need to consentrate on assets they now have and improve their efficiency and net profits. mergers allow mgt to look good by increasing assets that do not benefit anyone but themselves. too much of bonus is based on growth.
Again this incompetent management team DISAPPOINTS. But what does one expect since the BOD rewards this incompetence. If KK cannot get a hold of expenses this stock will never compete with the other major banks.
