    • While we'd all like to see the dividend back at its previous level (or higher), and eventually that's likely to happen, I don't think BB&T can afford to pay more than the reduced dividend at this time. Their recent earnings do not justify anything above what they're currently paying. I think they're going to get some opportunities to absorb business from some of the smaller players out there as they fail, and that's a better long term use for their cash flow than paying out a bigger dividend. They're also likely going to have some issues with Commercial Real Estate loans to contend with going forward, so holding on to cash is probably a good move, at least for now....

      It's hard to be patient when a company lays a big dividend reduction on you, but I think this is a long term winner, so I'll stick with it.

    • well, look who has showed up, the guy that wasn't anywhere to be found when BBT stock price was at the crash level of 13 -- but your company and you have such a good handle on BBT

      nice to see you show up on another day that BBT has not rallied with the rest of the S&P 500 -- but you should be getting used to this by now

      you gotta stop making excuses for lack of performance on BBT -- it's embarrassing

    • Don't be fussin' with The Bucket. He's made his trades crystal clear. He buys when the market is down and sells when it's up. And tells us about it later.

      Bucket is a Master of the Universe.

      He dates super models, owns racehorses and sports franchises. And like alot of very successful businessmen and big time traders, he hangs out on Yahoo boards.

      This is, of course, is where the rich and famous mingle.

    • not sure how you can say that, i've disclosed my approach to the trade and it's been very clear to understand -- not to mention that your sell orders that you just filled today also fit right in line with my short-term prediction -- i said in the message thread named 'one leg down one leg up' that energy was showing a topping pattern for the short-term -- the nasdaq is in the same shoes

      you bailed in your commod/energy trades on this fourth go around, and i have done the same -- i am scaling out and hedging longs and leaning short each step we go higher into the key S&P 500 # area -- i think you've done a great job -- maybe you're misunderstanding the way i say the anticipation moves of the S&P 500 -- every post has worked out for me and i traded it exactly the way i said i would, and the trading profits keeps flowing

    • "I have a ton of money in CD's and get .5% to .8%."

      Why don't you bury it in the backyard. It would save you gas going to and from the bank and likely improve your return.

      "Second because I want to stay on the opposite side of most of the rest of the board. As they become more negative, I want to start becoming more positive and visa versa. You may be my first clue in that area. Good luck."

      Wow! I may be your leading indicator driving your ambitious annual investment goal of 2.5%. Pardon me, you consider 2.5% as "adequate" but I don't see much difference.

      Since the start of 2008, my weekly returns have averaged in excess of 2.5%.

      I don't consider myself smart or brilliant. My success to date is being able to take advantage of unjustified fear driven largely by the analyst community which obviously you have taken to heart.

    • Funnie Bucket said:

      "the company itself doesn't even know the value of what's in its loan portfolio, and you trust what the company #s they are pumping out to you"

      I guarantee you that the bank has a much better handle of the value in their loan portfolio compared to Funnie Bucket's grasp of macro/micro economics.

    • ok, let's try a different approach to the explanation, because i think you have the big picture figured out very well -- i think you are not only able to hang onto your assets, but probably make them much larger than the averages -- you have the big picture figured out

      i get the idea that you shape the trades around you macro economics somewhat similar to the way i do it, thus rarely get burned by not being on the eventual wrong side of the trade

      so the only thing left to trade is the S&P 500 turn points -- which is one of the hardest feats to pull off routinely -- do you really want to trade that?

    • meanwhile, you're missing out on the S&P 500 turn point -- but if i were you and couldn't trade as well as me, i guess i would be on a message board posting up as much jealousy as you can possibly display -- and you did a fine job at that

      look for my One-Leg Down One-Leg Up message thread and see if what i said happens, and if it does, then you missed another of more than dozens of moves i have predicted with full success

    • Although Norm seems to have a following, his posts appear to be worthless somewhat like your short term projections on the market. You do however seem to have a good handle on the macro economic trends and that's what will make or break your accumulation of assets. I sold the FCX and BHP I bought a few months back. That's the fourth roundtrip in those two stocks. I continue to hold GE, PFE, JNJ, ABT, LLY, BP and BRE. I now however have well over 50% cash in my brokerage accounts.

      I don't know how long the trillions in stimulus will last, but I wouldn't want to have large positions in anything but cash when the dam breaks. Good luck.
