BB&T Corporation Message Board

    FACTS are what they are

    BB&T is up 2.4% YTD

    WFC, DJI, S&P, NASDAQ and BAC are ALL down YTD

    BBT is right on track with KBW Bank Index YTD

    BBT has never had a shaky moment in the past two years; yes, they had to be realistic about the turmoil in the rest of the US and the world outside and cut the dividend which will pay off in a much stronger company in the future.

    RF and STI are up slightly more than BBT for YTD, does anyone on this board really believe either is in a stronger position than BBT coming out of the global panic?

    The biggest risk factor today is the global economy. If the global economy crashes BBT will lose a little more, but they will be one of the few standing high above the ashes.

    People who have money to accumulate should do so in an orderly manner, decide on the total they want, decide on the number of weeks and spread the buys. Dollar averaging, unless they have a crystal ball and know for absolute certainty what is going to happen when in the global economy.
