    Cautiously Optimistic


    BBT's earnings estimates for the current quarter seems to be 75 cents and for the quarter ending Sept 05 appears to be 77 cents with estimates for the year of $3.02 a share.

    What is your thinking or feeling on each of the above figures? I would like to know yours or anyone's else feeling on these estimates will they make them or are they high or low?

    They have now missed two quarters estimates in a row. December 04 estimate was 76 cents and they came in at 75 cents a share. The March quarter estimate was 75 cents and they made 71 a share. With this being stated the question is if they have a really blow out quarter will that push the stock price up much or will it take at least two great quarters or more to push the price up above the current range?
