    BAC & WB did 6% last 2 days, BBT = 2%

    However, I am greatful for even small increases in BBT.

    • Heheheheheh! Thats why I stay out of figures except for buying at lows, selling some, keeping some at highs. Be gentle on Jimmie boy

    • >>Well DM I have to admit that you have completely lost me this time. I posted you spelled a word incorrectly in a direct quote and then you posted that I had used a word out of context in a post.<<

      As would be expected. Let me spell it out for you. The proper word to be used in the sentence I quoted is 'knowledgeable'. And I did not say the word was out of context I said "is not being properly used in the context of your sentence." Splitting hairs, yes, but very important hairs.

      >> This whole series started because you stated that my posts were out of context and the figures I posted did not have anything to do with the previous posts or anthing else. I thought that meant you were always right and I was completely wrong.<<

      Only someone with an inferiority complex would read into it the meaning of your last sentence. It meant exactly what was said. Your post had no relevance to what was being discussed. Your post lacked complete information. That is it. If you want to believe you're always wrong because of that don't let me stop you.

      >>According to BB&T... http://www.bbt.com/bbt/about/shareholderservices/dividendsstocksplits.html ...the dividend, adjusted for the 2 for 1 split in '98, was 0.115/share."

      The dividend price and date are not in agreement.The figures are wrong period.<<

      Yep, stupid error on my part. Should have been $0.155. Difference between you and me...I can admit it.

      >>According to the logic of your last post does this mean that I now am justified in posting incorrect amounts and or dates or both as you posted incorrect information? Maybe this same logic means that I should just call you names as you have done me or does it mean I should call you worst names then you called me?<<

      Now you're ranting, Jimmy. My last post pointed out an error in grammar you had made. Since your post, immediately preceding my last, seemed to indicate you had concerns about proper English being written on this message board I figured I'd help you out by pointing out your error.

      By the way...it's 'worse' and not 'worst' in the context of the last sentence.

      Thanks for playing.

    • Stil,

      If your post is really true and you did sell at $43 and change I'm happy for you.

      I'm serious, I am truly happy for you if you've made money. Might come in handy sometime to know someone that is rich and famous.

      Hope your day goes well.

      Jim

    • Well DM I have to admit that you have completely lost me this time. I posted you spelled a word incorrectly in a direct quote and then you posted that I had used a word out of context in a post.

      This whole series started because you stated that my posts were out of context and the figures I posted did not have anything to do with the previous posts or anthing else. I thought that meant you were always right and I was completely wrong.

      This is one of your previous posts:

      According to the logic of your last post does this mean that I now am justified in posting incorrect amounts and or dates or both as you posted incorrect information? Maybe this same logic means that I should just call you names as you have done me or does it mean I should call you worst names then you called me?

      It has really been great playing with you. Sorry, but something worth doing has come up so I got to go.

    • Ahhhh Jimmie boy, I might question your judgement from time to time, but I'm quite aware of your spelling ability. Actually redicule is used quite often in conversation. I have to tell you though, that the last block I purchased at 38 and change sold at 43 and change. The block bought previously will be held long term. Am I happy? Is the Pope a Catholic? Does a wild bear? Will the missus and I go on another trip? Am I STIL rich and retired? The neighbor ladies are all out sunning today, and wan't me to read to them, and BBandT is STIL not for sale.

    • That just pains me, Jim. It just cut me to the quick. ;-)

      Of course, I usually overlook other people's little spelling and grammatical errors on a message board. But, since you want to play the game, lets take a look at message #12991..."You've got to admit that this post was better than his usual of how rich, knowledge and happy he is."

      Now, I've got to admit, "knowledge" is a word but it sure is not being properly used in the context of your sentence. Here we are back to context. Seems to be a an underlying problem with many of your posts.

      Nice playing with you.

    • Seems to be a little off and has a possibility of being misleading.

      "'[R]edicule"

      Stil we need your comment about the current education system or lack thereof.

    • Dave,

      I agree. But, no one ever implied that BBT has outperformed WB over the last 5 years. Some numbers I posted show that over the relatively short period of the last 6 months, WB did almost 100% better than BBT. Going back 1 month, which was an arbitrary number, just so happens to coincide with what might be one of the few time frames that has BBT outperforming BAC and WB.

      My original post used returns for an admittedly too short of a period to be used to judge the respective stocks' performance. But, it was in answer to the original poster's numbers based on an even shorter time frame...two days. All I was pointing out was, different time frame, different results.

      Jim's chiming in with misleading/unclear figures in his post, in the context of the thread, resulted in the rest of the discussion.

      also a

    • as someone who owns BOTH of these banks i feel imminently qualified to weigh in here.

      wb has vastly outperformed bbt over the last 5 years.........it has only been in the last 3 WEEKS that bbt has shown any life whatsoever.

      hope springs eternal, perhaps bbt will now start to perform, but no serious analysis of these two stocks could lead to the conclusion bbt has been equal or better over the last 5 years,

    • >>Great reply. It certainly shows how intelligent you are when the best you can do is just revert to name calling.<<

      As I thought '[R]edicule is the first and last argument of fools', when I read your comment "Doesn't really surprise me as the original post should have been clear to anyone with average intelligence."
