    Glad to get with BB&T.

    I'm a BKFR (BankFirst of TN) shareholder, and
    that stock has for two years made me no money except
    for dividends. So I'm happy they sold out even if it
    was for diddlysquat. Now I'm curious about what you
    longtime shareholders have to say about the future of

    • Welcome aboard from a 30 year shareholder! BB&T
      is a good long term investment in my opinion; great
      franchise, well respected management, proven sales culture
      (hard to do in a bank as you know), double digit
      dividend increases in recent years, highly diversified
      small business/middle market loan portfolio, and good
      asset quality history. The downside of owning any bank
      stock is the temporary doldrums caused by rising rate
      cycles. I've used the last two years as a buying
      opportunity. Look at the number of "buy" recommendations on
      this bank.

      Talk to us a little about the market
      and economic prospects out your way.


    • Welcome aboard !

      What's the story on this Fred Lawson guy?

    • Welcome to BB&T. I have been a shareholder since
      1980. It has been ( until about 20 months ago) an
      excellent stock to own. Growth was good and dividends were
      inline with most banks. Nearly all banks went into a
      sharp decline in early 1999 and BB&T has made a small
      recovery - long way to go.

      I have not sold one
      share and do not plan to at this time. My feeling is
      that it is going to be slow to recover. The fact that
      BB&T is a well managed operation as much as anything
      else helps me make this choice.
