Of course. BB&T's stock was upgraded from Hold to Buy today. They are an extremely conservative bank that is almost untouched by the current problems in the Financial Services industry. In addition, they are a high quality, client-focused bank the really walks the walk of customer service.
Way back WB and, was it First Union, merged, actually a purchase by FU, and at the time both were in pretty serious trouble. WB kept the name as the lesser of evils, but FU kept the power. So in a period of years their leadership has led them down the drain twice, unlike BBandT which has had consistent and conservative moral leadership, one of the very few not sucked into subprime and other phony areas of lending.
