You do not see me often on this board but I assure you I have been an avid reader of these postings for sometime. I feel most are trying to add something meaningful about BBT and its future which I assume is important to most of us.
I agree with Doctor JunJun that many of the postings in the last few weeks are getting away from the subject of this board and may cause many of us to find better to do with our time.
Since I raised the question a number of days ago, many of you have been kind enuff to give us your two cents worth. Thanks.
I still think a MOE with ASO would be interesting. Neat market coverage (Geo and cultural) and a big enough deal to keep both alive from now on. Having said that, I don't think Mr. A would settle for less than the top spot. Perhaps a combined BBT-ASO would be big enough to find real jobs for the rest that would be big enough. Anybody from ASO land that knows their CEO well enough to know if he would bow out?
I have not heard any rumors lately that have not been on this board, but I doubt that BBT could be bought easily right now. Their numbers are just too good and the price should hold up (IMHO, of course.) So.....
I'm back to "who do they buy next?" Good stuff on WV candidates, but are there any banks in GA that might be reasonable? Isn't there a fairly big bank in northern GA and Atlanta that would fit the bill??
