Too funny. African-American refers to a black American of African descent. And while the Jesse Jacksons and the Al Sharptons of the black movement may argue that you're not an African-American unless you're descended from slaves. That's because they can't explain why new immigrants, who are African-Americans, tend to be more successful than descendants of slaves even though the situation of the recent immigrants in Africa were often more dire than that of any black american in the last 100 years.

The confirmed an increase of the dividend over the same qtr last year. Correct, it did not change from the most recent quarter and I think everyone knows that. The fact that there is an increase in the dividend over a year ago confirmed yesterday is very impressive.
obama gave his 965 i have a dream speach and it didnt move the market, its getting old. Even black people i talk to are getting pissed, most were expecting a check in the mail. he even said last night the checks were on the way.? what checks is he talking about.?
You don't get it. As I posted yesterday after the dividend was announced that such action was irresponsible and only proved what a bunch of arrogant executives are in charge. These morons thought it was more important to continue its 37 year record of increasing dividends than building up needed capital as JPM did. Now they will have to refund their TARP money immediately. I am a retired investment banking officer and I know what I am talking about. This stock is going nowhere.
You are wrong-read more- BBT does not have to give back any tarp or forgo their divy--they just CANNOT increase the divy-the divy yesterday was not a yearly increase but the same as last year; only increase was from the same qtr of last year--do the math.
You may be right on the stock price--stuck btx 13 and 17--at least for another 3-4 months.
Take TARP money and then have to kiss gov't ass. JPM will take the divy money and pay off TARP and then manage their own business without obama nose in their face-a wise move--then raise their divy slowly over next 3 yrs.
i believe that companies that employ "excessive" use of tarp cannot pay large dividends. being "forced" to take less than 1 percent of available tarp money probably doesnt count as "excessive".
however, you may be right, the stock may be going nowhere. probably more attributable to the blind squirrel theory than your intelligence.
