I would still like to see BB&T buy First Virginia, or Mercantile(MD). My MOE favorites are Southtrust and Summit(NJ).They really do need a larger presence in VA and MD. Just my opinion.
Agree with you 100%! I think that SOTR makes more sense due to the potential efficiencies of their overlapping markets - especially Atlanta.
Do you not think that purchasing products to sell through their retail outlets would be the next logical move given the recent changes in banking laws?Think insurance companies, etc ...
Insurance is already a major part of BB&T's business.
