I think it's inevitable that BB&T will be bought, eventually. I don't know when, but I just don't think they can compete nationally the way things are right now. It just doesn't make sense that the only way to grow is through acquisition. If the only way a company can get bigger (i.e. better) is through buying other companies, then it's bound to fall.
And to those folks that are so defensive about BBT being bought, I've got to say... what do you care? If they get bought, the stock that you hold has to go up (or at least, do something). I mean what are you so defensive about anyway?
Perhaps its time for JA to retire and let someone else take over and see what they can do with it. To stay alive, you have to adapt and change. Otherwise, you stay stagnant and you're dead.
Yeah I know, I really was hoping some could hang, but alas! Perfect example of todays education system and how easily some are led. Not to mention ego itis. Montani Semper Liberi, and Semper Fi
Glad to see you found the ignore button. I used it on two posters about one month ago. It has really cut down on the reading time for this board. So far I cannot tell that I have missed one thing of importance.
Stil, I don't know what's happened to you over the last month or so. You used to have at least some reasonable responses to postings on this board. Now however, you've really turned into a self-absorbed a$$. I'm taking your recommendation on the ignore button. See you (or not).
