Not many large (?) moves left in VA. FVB, in VA, TN, and MD at $12B+ and FMN at $3B in VA, MD, and WV are the two major players still not acquired. Message boards for these two are filled with BBT references (and, if true, would have FVB rejecting a proposal at least once).
FMN was always "not for sale", but their Chairman made some comments about a possible sale at the S/H meeting (out of character). Would probably be a good fit; they like the "community bank" concept, and are generally in the areas of VA where BB&T does not have a presence.
Atlanta may be inviting, but it would seem wise to get a larger share of the VA market, especially in the Northern VA, Charlottesville, and Richmond areas. Higher incomes = higher balances = higher profits and more cross sale opportunities.
Of course the same could be said for Atlanta!
If FTU, BOA, or WB get much more of the VA share, anyone else will have a tough time getting a respectable share in the short run.
