Forward PE under 10
Dividend over 5.5 %
Peg only 1.19
Limited prime mtge debt exposure
Well off 52 wk highs (near 52 wk lows)
Book only 1.44
Looks like a good long term keeper just for the dividend, but it should fluctuate enough to give you a 20% or more return over the next year if you choose to sell. Of course, if you bought at higher prices I expect you to bash me and the company.
Poor numbie, tries to ignore but all he does is talk about ole Spoor5t, like wormie. Just great examples of the spot on analysis they continue to offer the board. Btw numbie, I ran into two fresh boot leave Marines today, one is helping guard the gold at Fort Know, I know, it's Army, but we also know who is guarding heavens scene, and the other was going to Lejeune. When I told them early 60s, they said, man you can't be that old. Haven't heard so many sirs in decades
Please tell the board again how great a job JA and company is doing.
This is from an earlier post:
"If you had bought BAC and BBT's stock on 12/31/1998 this is the results you would have had including dividends.
BAC $13.875 in dividends plus $10.64 in stock appreciation for a total return of $24.515 or an 81% return on your investment.
BBT $11.07 in idividends and a lost of $7.77 a share for a total return of $3.30 or a return of 8.1% since 1998."
Around 12:00 today the results have changed to the following:
BAC $13.875 in dividends plus $11.21 in stock appreciation for a total return of $25.085 or an 83.4% return on your investment.
BBT $11.07 in dividends and a lost of $9.83 a share for a total return of $1.24 or a return of 3.1% since 1998.
One of these stocks appear to be going in the wrong direction to be a good investment.
Just ignore the facts and post bad information about other banks even if their stock is a superior investment and is out performing BBT's.
Merry Christmas to one and all on the board.
As I said, there is a difference between being funny and stupid. You expressing an opinion on anything other than the taste of someone's privates is stupid. You remarking about how many times and how often someone else posts is funny. Keep the funny stuff coming.
