    • I'm new to this board. The interaction looks great. Any more news on F&M or SunTrust?

      • I follow many of the SE banks and F&M is very
        interesting. Aparently, I'm not the only one who thinks that,
        based on their prices the last few weeks. Most of the
        other potential (at least as mentioned on this board)
        BBT targets have also moved up in a tough market.
        Don't know all the reasons why. Anybody heard anything
        - especially you folks down in VA?

        would probably like to buy BBT but I don't think they
        can pull it off right now. It would take a big drop
        in BBT to pull it into focus for STI - particularly
        after their purchase in VA.

        I still think ASO
        would be a good catch for BBT. IMO they would rock the
        SE with excellent coverage (except for Atlanta I
        grant you), similer mgt., and class acts in both cases.
        It would also probably save both from acquisition by
        ONE or one of the other giants. I think I'm the only
        one who thinks this is a good match though. Oh

        Again, welcome. One thing you will usually not find here
        is a lot of whinning. You need to go to the BAC
        board for that! Poor Hugh!
