    I don't think a dividend increase, is in the cards for a couple quarters. I would also like to point out at this price level bbt is probably a little overvalued. Even putting a generous 2010 earnings estimate of $1.50 the stock is selling at 23 times estimate earnings. That's kinda rich. I own the stock, but sold half and took profits. It's a great company, but I think its at the top of its range. I bought some c today which sells at 8 times estimated 2010 earnings.

    • The value of a stock is the present value of discounted future dividends, to infinity. Near term earnings have a little more weight, but that weight has to reflect market conditions.

      Investors who see the current economy as an aberration will come to a much different conclusion than day traders and other short view traders.

      When considered on a broad range of history market timers lag buy and hold by roughly a percentage point on average.
