I still stand by my original statement that the chart appears to have a problem. I do realize there was a split. It still might have something to do with their changing the symbol to BBT. I believe that they took a symbol that had been used by someone previously.
In any case hope we all have better investing and returns in 2004.
Well, I'm confused. Heckuva list of mergers in there too. Might have to get clarification from someone who has been a longtimer. One note does mention that a share of SNC is equal to a share of BBT. And the prices 1994, 1995 obviously do not reflect the 1998 2 for 1 split. $8 or $9 purchase? With a current $1.28 dividend....
Got a gut feeling that today's dividend gives a fair annualized return to someone who bought 10 years ago, though. Nothing to crow about at today's $38+ purchase price, though. IMO.
