One other pt. worth mentioning and then I'll shut up.Fed recent stress test showed bbt with the lowest loan loss rate and strongest tier 1 common vs. its peers. I believed their analysis only included peers with $100 billion or more in assets.Under the stress test scenario, bbt loan losses were 20% , 23% and 30% lower than pnc, usb and wfc respectively.Worth noting that pnc's loan loss provision for 1st qtr. was 40 bsp plus(annualized) - vs. 110 bsp for bbt. PNC ALL is about 2.2% of loans - bbt is about 2.0% of loans.I would be interested in see mtb and hban results but they were not included in presentation. My guess is mtb results were better than bbt.
