    Keep ducking punches

    It appears the nastiness Key reported due to the tax ruling has already been addressed by management. The WSJ article on Key clearly tried to rope BBT into the same hole.

    Construction loan losses were reportedly the next cause of losses and write-downs but analysis shows BBT's strength there highest among regional banks.

    Some on this board want to say banks won't make monet going into the future because there won't be any deposits to lend with. But NIM is up.

    So the last punch will be another review of housing loans. Did management deal with this properly in the first quarter or are defaults considerably above already booked reserves? It appears to me that a big loss and possibly a dividend cut are in the price now. If there's no big unanticipated loss and the dividend remains uncut, this bank will not be for sale at a bargain. It won't need the capital and in a year the dividend goes to 2.00 and the price goes to 40.
