    curious about latest acquistion

    justjeckin,

    In answer to your question about BBT being bought out. There were several messages a month or so ago on this subject and the majority agreed that a buy out was highly unlikely.

    Most of the posters agreed that the top executives had to big an ego and were not about to give up such a good pay deal for them.
    There is no reason for top management to want to deal under the present circumstances.

    Check out the pay of the top six executives for the last few years verus the total return to the shareholders. Executives have done very well and the shareholders have gotten the table scraps. Why would the top executives give up this kind of deal?

    Yours for better investing,

    Jim
