I am 73, and old, but not feebleminded. Your question regarding my "slant" is to inform the readers that I am biased/and/or unable to see the truth. Not to dissapoint you, I will answer your question.
BBT stock performance has about mirrored the financial stocks. Up a bit, down when everyone got skittish about Greenspans comments. Still, BBT not hurt nearly as bad as other banks stocks. Care to chart a few?
I am truly sorry for my poor choice of words. On the contrary, I very much appreciate your views on this board. I have found over the years that folks from your generation indeed have a much more healthy attitude towards investing than my peers. I am trying to develop that long-term approach to investing that your generation seem to just naturally have.
"Slant" was just an attempt at cuteness that obviously did not work. Again, sorry for the unintended disrespect, and please keep posting your opinions. You and I both are hitched to this wagon, and our opinions are not far apart.
