I invested my IRA in BBK mutual funds about a
year ago. Results have been ho-hum. I am in the growth
& income fund. Am new on the investment scene. BBK
broker recommended it. Did I make a mistake? In couple
years will need to roll over my 401 from company plan
to something. Should I stick with BBK?

There is a featured article in the Charlotte
Observer business section discussing BB&T's goal to be the
"best of the best". You can read it
sorry I don't know how to make the direct link.
This is the best board I have seen, full of good
info and interested, generally well informed posters.
I too have owned BBK for more than 20 years, but
the best ride by far has been over the past 3-4 years
since they merged with Southern National. While there
will be short term ups and downs in the price the only
long term outlook for this stock is up, whether due to
continued high performance or to being purchased for a very
high premium. Management and infrastructure are being
stretched, but this is also true of every aggressive and
above average bank in today's industry environment.
More importantly, they have the ability to pull it off
and have been proving so for several years now. I
hope they make it, for investors will be best served
in this manner, but the downside of a takeover is
still not negative from a return standpoint. Hang in
there and hope for the best. Regards.
At my age, looking is just
about al that you can do most of the timne (ok, there
are those rare moments...)
Sorry about my
prediction. How did I know that our faired hair boy would get
voted down in the house on impeachment. Its really
dragging the market down.
Whats new out there in
electronic land? Everyone have to fight the mall crowds
Enjoy Doc also.
I enjoy Doc's post also
and think nothing of him complementing
at BB&T. Course, I am of the generation that thought
a compliment was a good thing and not a negative
Am pulling for Doc's 41 soon.
I love your posts and never think negatively of
you. However, I wonder how many people out there read
them and think you are the worst sexist in the world.
I have gotten caught in that trap a few times
myself. Love those ladies!!!!
I believe that BB&T is headquartered in
Winson-Salem, not Wilson. Last time I was there, W-S is pretty
neat and "new South" whatever that means.
I think I was the one who said they were not for
sale. They are not! Having said that, it does not mean
that they can not be bought, but I don't think anyone
would pay the price it would take and endure the
many banks or institutions would be able to
afford them if
they WERE for sale.They could help
form one hell of a merger or
they may continue to
acquire on their own." Your quote implies they're not for
sale, which I am sure you realize is a possibility.
