    just can't get any respect?

    These manipulating jerks just gave some of us another buying opportunity. We will probably have to put up with this baloney until earnings are released; however, a single very positive upgrade could change all of this any day.

    • More nonsense from the BB&T kool aid crowd. Loan growth is weak. 2009-2011 their loan portfolio increased from 96.1B to 98.1B, and all the net increase came from renewed residential mortgage lending (and there is not much more of that to be had), which saw yields drop from 5.7% to 4.8%. So they are NOT making new loans and the small net increase they are showing has lower yields. On top of that, they are still sitting on 30B in cash after 3 years...instead of lending it out and building a new loan portfolio they are just churning securities. So if you want to know why this is not at $45 read the K. The small community banks are making all the loans now, why? Because banks like BB&T don't have to, because they have all the cash from Uncle Ben. You are really buying an insurance agency (amongst other fee sourcing entities) when you buy this company

      • Of course, queefoo overlooks the runoff of many portfolios - adc, commercial real estate, lot loans, home equity and jr. home lines, Alt. A loans, subprime re etc. The adc portfolio by itself dropped from $9 billion to $2 billion over last 3 years.

        I'm pleased that the bank was able to grow loans despite the huge amount of runoff. And the bank was also able to increase loan margins to plus 400 bsp . Not to0 many banks can make this claim.

        Loans this qtr. should increase by about 6% annualized. Most of the increase is attributable to market share gains.

        Queenfoo may have good intentions but she does not understand banking. However, she is several grades higher in terms of knowledge than nobankerplease.
