Good to see you back Doc. Maybe that is the reason that our BB&T is above 30. Please stay around and help it go higher. I too am long on BB&T. Would like your (and anyone's) thoughts on the below quote I cam across this AM.
Thanks and keep looking at the girls Doc.
"Other banks that may be looking for buyers are Compass Bancshares Inc." (NasdaqNM:CBSS - news), Cincinnati's Fifth Third Bancorp
(NasdaqNM:FITB - news), BB&T Corp. (NYSE:BBT - news) of Winston Salem and Wells Fargo and Co. (NYSE:WFC - news) of San Francisco, analysts said.
DENNRA, I'm willing to give Doc credit for 30+, but as I mentioned to Stock, the Summit deal and now Firstar have analysts salivating and speculating about who might propose to who. JAA ain't looking for buyers, he's looking for sellers and he'll do do a merger of equals if he's slightly "more equal". (This opinion based solely on history). However if market speculation about a merger helps the price, I'm all for it. Bring it on!
