    When will BB&T be allowed to raise their dividend

    While I respect BB&T management as being amongst the more honorable of corp. execs, it might be noted that having more stock would grant them more dividends, including a raised dividend. And for the time being, dividends hava a better tax treatment than salaries. Also, I don't see how stock grants decrease dividend payout capabilities. So perhaps the stock grants might be a hint of dividend increases in the future.
