    Big worry!

    BB&T up 6.4% this week while other banks did nothing. When they find out that no one is buying us we will drop like a brick. Very very bad day coming up Monday.

    • Look at the ratio of bbt share price to wfc and usb.

      Current price is still well below historical avg ratios - bbt/wfc and bbt/usb.

      Relative to wfc and usb, bbt share price should continue to increase at a faster rate or drop at a slower rate until it returns to avg. ceteris paribus.

      As I said previously, any bank eyeing sti would be nuts not to go after bbt first given their current share price.

      Kelly King may not have the luxury of time. He needs to get share price up fast or risk buyout. JMHO.

    • BBT was oversold last week, this week about retraces the slide the week of 9/13.

      Likely some folks got nervous in April / May that the stock got too far ahead of the recovery and there was a market over correction from then through the end of August. It is possible a few of those nervous nellies posted their anxieties on this board from time to time.

      Marty Zweig is the first I recall to make the statement that bull markets climb walls of worry, so don't stop worrying, we need you and others to feed the recovery in the market.

    • I don't think anyone is chomping at the bit to buy BBT. I believe that the back room asking price is too high at this time to attract a serious buyer. I've had this stock a long time and expect to keep it for a longer time.
