    Why do you keep insisting on comparing them to the S&P. I thought they were a bank and the logical comparison would be to other banks, maybe even their own chosen PEER GROUP.

    $100 invested including reinvestment of dividends are as follows;
    BBT 12/98 $100 12/99 $69.35 12/00 $97.54
    12/01 $97.06 12/02 $102.59 12/03$110.95

    The company chosen PEER GROUP
    12/98 $100 12/99 $84.97 12/00 $97.43
    12/01 $102.64 12/02 $99.82 12/03 $124.31
    This is as printed in the proxy on page 36.

    As stated earlier they have lost almost of their 5 year gain since 1/2004. Maybe someone hasn't made any money for a long time on this one.

    Still a solid 5 year plus time frame.

    Do you are anyone know if any top insiders have actually bought any shares on the open market in February or March of this year?
