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.
I just did. Checking account, 100K 4% CD, and added about 3000 shares over the last few weeks to my BB&T holdings. I have absolute confidence in this bank. I've known Jack Allison since high school days in Chapel Hill. Not only is he one of the smartest people I know, he is conservative, honest, and a decent man. BB&T will come out of this financial/housing crisis very strong. It's a real shame what happened to Wachovia - lots of fine people there got hurt. Never-the-less, their fall can only strengthen BB&T.
