Big words from somone that must have shit temselves when BBT was up 8% today.
Here is the short end of it. There are alot of crappy financial stocks out there .... some that are undoubtedly bad investments. BBT is not that bad. They are fairly conservative and non-performing assets will not be the worst out there.
What is happening is that the people that didn't short at levels 50% higher than todays price are now shorting because they see what is on TV. Don't worry, you will loose your ass in time.
