    Please guys...enough! Who cares? If you're happy with your portfolio, that's all that matters. Get over the "Mine grows faster than yours" attitude. Get back to dissing/praising management....

    On that subject, it appears that one group is complaining about how mgmt shouldn't get a bonus if the stock doesn't rise equal to or greater than their peers. Or, in other words, they're saying if mgmt doesn't manipulate the stock price, they shouldn't get a bonus. Basically that's what they're saying. Guys, I hate to tell you this, but stocks just don't go up in a nice straight line along with EPS. Look at Capital One. That stock took a pounding for a couple years, even though they were growing earnings in the double-digit percent. Finally though, someone realized the stock had value and bid it up. That's how you make some real money. Not saying that BB&T is the same way, but just pointing out that nothing is just like the textbook says.
