    Lest Clearify the Issue:

    Read Bill Gross's current investment letter....financial assets are in for another pounding, not a recovery.

    • Bill Gross may be correct;however, BBT share price will be much higher within a couple of years - possibly sooner. Don't be caught short.

      • Thanks, You are essentially saying what i have said for years. BB&T is a trade. It is not an investment. Right now you want to own the market, BB&T is part of the market. When it is time to not own the market, dump this thing....buy and hold is going to be a problem, just look at the lemmings who bought in the late 1990s, they have not even kept up with treasuries. And for 15 years that is pretty bad. The only buy and hold winners associated with this stock are the EVPs who get it for free; their IRRs are infinite. Even the employees who have this in their 401Ks have been rooked.
