    BBT 10 years up 37+%

    I don't think BBT is up 37%. A little too high.
    I think it is up only about 18%. It really depends on how you compute the profit.
    Based on a stock price of $10/share in 1995 and a price of $42 in 2005 and a dividend of 3.5% I calculate a compound interest of about 18%.
    This is not bad for a long term investment.
