JUST BOUGHT 2k SHARES. I worked 8 yrs ago as a Computer Scientist to upgrade their mainframe computers when the company was around 20 Bil(8 yrs ago), now it is triple that . I attended all corporate meetings and they started out with with a prayer. I got to know the Ceo and he was the most common man I ever met in this upper level position. If you ever got to go into a BB&T bank, they will treet you like no other bank and will address you by your name. That is why no other bank that it competes with has no chance to overtake it. Just my opinion.
I have also been a long time customer and a stock holder and to date I have been very satisfied except when the dividend was decreased. The rate is still much better than the rates on their CD's, I expect to hold my stock for a long, long time.
