This is a very solid bank and over the past year they have had some key acquisitions. Good to see that some people out there agree with me and the price is going north a little bit. Not a bad place to load up, I see the pirce easily going up into the 40's for the new year. Chart on this stock looks to be cyclical and well defined.
I agree that the stock is trading at a discount. I think the stock will move north after the new year(Y2k concerns) into the mid 40s. BB&T made several acquisitions this year that should strenghten its franchises.
