Bonnie: If you are trying to talk down the stock, you came to the wrong room. People in this room have forgotten more about financials than I will ever know. I too, wish the stock would sell to 18, but, not likely, we seem to be building a base, unless Euro banks are lying about their debt to equity ratio, and, we all know, banker don't lie.
first of all, I can`t figure out why the regional banks are getting slapped because of European bank concerns. I can understand slowing US growth to weigh in. BBT should slowly climb back to pre- downgrade levels but if our politicians blow it one more time, Wall Street is going to be more negative than last week.
