    Will they have any trouble beating .68 for Q2?

    Do you see any chance of another dividend increase this year? KK maintains this as a high priority and seems empathetic with those of us relying on them. Earnings would seem to justify an increase to.25 before the end of the year.

    • Any dividend increase will have to be approved by the Fed. The pattern has been one increase per year.

      Last qtr. the payout ratio was 28% before one time charges and 33% based on the bottom line.

      I think quarterly eps going forward will increase significantly and approach $1 per share by the 4th qtr. Without a dividend increase, this would put the payout ratio well below the stated objective of 30 to 50%.

      So I don't have an answer. Does bbt submit another increase to the Fed in 2012?
