I Love BBT because ITS NOT JUST BANKING TO THEM ANYMORE.
BBT will continue to buy life insurance companies, and investment companies like craigie. Anything even remotely related to financial, they will get involved in.
I believe they don't want to get to big, because by being the size that they are, they can run circles around FU and nations. I see them making further acquizitions in virginia within the next 45 days, but I think you will see more buyouts from them of investment related companies.
They have an awesome strategy. I see this stock around 75 by this time next year. Plus dividends, thats pretty awesome stuff.
