    Not so subtle hint:

    WELL SPOKEN!!!!!

    There is no way to compare the FTU management team to that of BB&T.

    • BB&T's management has performed up to their own
      and the analysts expectations. The drop in stock
      price is more due:

      1. To some extent year end
      tax loss selling

      2. The rising rate
      environment: BB&T does have a lot of fixed rate loans due to
      acquisitions and the competitve banking environment

      BB&T has had a much higher PE than its
      competitors...still does....but they are all dropping. Banks are

      4. The takeover speculation has slowed a little as
      bank stocks have gotten bashed. The takeover currency
      is worth less

      5. Expectations of a slower
      growth economy. Also, the BB&T gains in income have come
      from expanding relationships with clients of banks
      they have bought, who in most cases did not have the
      array of BB&T products to sell. No significant
      acquisitions means no significant opportunities to expand
