    Pundits and the Dividend

    The short-sellers and vultures just don't get it. They don't understand BB&T, the culture, the loyalty of the stock holders, the terrific management, sound business model, etc. I've given up trying to explain to these knuckleheads how BB&T cannot be lumped with the BOA's and Citis of the world. To do so is a dumb, short-sighted approach that will cost them money in the long run. If there is ANY financial to own, it's BB&T. I've owned it for a long time and continue to buy in this depressed market. Kelly King and his team rock.

    • otis...i agree with you...my family has owned BBT stock for 30+ yrs. and have considered it one of the most stable investments we own...i enjoy banking with the BBT & have been told that each branch has growth/profitability goals that must be reached. That said i believe BBT will be profitable to the extent they can continue the dividend....(shorties beware...you are betting against a "regional banking legend" that will adapt to any financial situation)...i am betting with my investment dollars the dividend continues and is paid from increased profits...GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!!

    • Well said, Otis! You are right...you cannot possibly explain this to the shorts on this board. Most analysts don't even understand and just keep lumping BB&T with the other banks. It's best to just sit back and watch it as it unfolds.
