dude, the toxic assets you have not seen yet, when prices must be met mark to market, they are toxic, so for now you guys get a stay of execution, but you can't hold it off for much longer, then you will know the definition of toxic assets -- your problem is your bank is not owning up to its toxic level, yet
quit looking at the #s, those have spin on them, now look at the reality, the #s reported are skewed to show favor, yet the TARP tells a different story, and BBT is not on record of ever stating to congress that they do not need the TARP -- and the reason they did not go of record, is probably because they needed it?? Duh??
now i am wondering about Wells Fargo, despite they went on record of stating they do not need the money -- if the mess gets worse, their balance sheet will be full of toxicity -- BBT is not alone

you LONGS have made up your mind, there is no saving you guys -- why don't you go in and take each and every single loan, mark to market yourself, and see if they are toxic -- please remember to mark them at below fair value since no one is buying real estate with commercial real estate about to crash -- of course, that commercial real estate about to crash comment by me is of my opinion, but that is on top of the already cut in half price of the past 5 years
i never seen investing done like this, when the sh1t hits the fan, you're suppose to run for cover until the all clear signal is given, but you LONGS think this is a short-term little pullback in a stock market from DOW 14,250 -- do you need to be injected with smart cells into your brains?
i remember the good old days, buy when the market is stable, consistent, predictable, and climbing, knowing you were buying into a decent economy -- but those few investors are gone -- and the smart investors evolved into day traders and swing traders -- but there is no evidence on this board of that, except for a few
