    Wall Street must really hate BBT....

    they keep punishing it for the sins of the Big Banks!

    • If the company is making a a lot of money and is under valued Wall Street will find our little Bank . Believe me , when the numbers line up wall street will line up to buy .

      Right now buy all you can because in a couple years when this company is selling in the up 50's you will be glad you did .

      We need to buy another one of those troubled banks with a couple hundred branches. They gave us Colonial .

    • I think it's treated like that because BBT does not communicate any forward strategy or thinking. In another threat I mentioned that BBT's only strategy seems to be growing through acquisitions. That has worked ion the past, and could work via discounted FED acquisitions. However it should communicate and displays some forward thinking otherwise it will not be able to dig out.

      Look at STI. It's trading much better while having greater debt, including tarp. However STI communicates that it aggressively pursuits growth, and gets rewarded for that.

      Just my two cents, and yes, I do have a substantial amount 'locked' in BBT, and growing increasing more impatient.

    • This stock never seems to get a just reward from Wall Street. Honestly doesn't matter about beating expectations and turning a profit every quarter. Truly blows my mind.
