    Market on Close Buy Orders

    Several times a week I see large market on close buy imbalance for BB&T. Yesterday the number was 640200. I rarely see any follow-up on the next business day. I ponder the question of why any individual or institution would want to buy a large number of shares at the market close. It happens with BB&T more than any other bank. If anyone has an explanation for this type of action, I would deeply appreciate an explanation.
