Well, it has now been 7 years.
Stock price 12/31/1998 $40.31 a share
Stock price 12/31/2004 $42.05 a share
Stock price 12/31/2005 $41.91 a share
Gain of $1.60 a share for the last seven years and a lost of 14 cents a share the last year.
Yes, that is correct the shareholders have averaged 23cents a share for the last 7 years plus dividends. The current dividends are much higher than in previous years.
Guess, the Board of Directors will give JA and company their usual nice raises, bonuses and stock options. The BOD should be ashamed to state that any part of their pay package is performance based.
Just my opinion, but the figures are in fact true and so is the amounts that the top management's pay package has been increased during the last seven years.
From our previous communication you made it sound like you were from VA. If that is so aren't you calling yourself a "dumb southrener"?
Look this is a board to talk about BB&T, the preformance of its stock, and prospects for its future. Name calling is childish and unproductive and doesn't help accomplish the mission of this board.
You have stated your views and though I disagree I do respect them. I don't want to hear people that just agree with me I want to hear contrary pionts of views because you might have thought of something I haven't.
If you have something to add even if it is negative about BB&T please post it. If all you are going to do is call someone childish names then please refrain from posting.
Well, I like to be dumb like a fox. An insult is merely an insecurity at debate, along with insecurity in oneself. Folks like Dr Phil and others would tell him to look in the mirror, and stop being a tyrant.
Would love to predict the next 5 years, but as you may know, past performance is not indicative of future performance.
One thing I can predict is that you will still be a dumb southerner 5 years from now; blinded by your love of a no-growth stocks like BBT.
