Your right, allison has done a trmendous job on this one.
FU and Nations have been too tied up buying the big boys (boatsman, signet, corestates), that the little regional ones have gone by the wayside. I'll bet in the next 30 days, BBT buys someone else out. It will look especially good on paper as the share price of BBT has risen.
My guess? I say we will be at 85 by Dec 31, 1998. Plus dividdends, this is a hot one!
Not only has Allison done a job but the people I have met are ALL TOP BANKERS and not only can they clean Nation's and First Union's clock but they can handle the smaller banks as well. I hope they keep on moving. Who knows. Some day they may be a big National type bank.....
