    I'm having lots and lots of problems with the AOL Daily Finance page and was wondering if everyone else is having problems. The site won't let me connect and when I can get connected it kicks me off. This problem has been on going and the last suggestion I got from the site was to switch browers. I mean really.

    At end of day today looks to be only a gain of $2.07. I understand your comment about history and prices but didn't you actually do the same thing which you referenced my price in February? Saw the proxy material for BBT today. Take a good look at the strike prices and the years on the options outstanding for the executives.

    dhrosier, you are so right. The Dow Industrials were 15,963 on 2/12 and finished today at 16,367 so the over all market seems to be up some too. However, my point was and still is that if you owned the stock on 12/31/1998 and still owm it today you have a gain of a whole $1.61 a share in what over 15 years. Great investment ? In the some time frame just how much has the BOD and executives been paid. Bonuses, stock options, stock grants etc? I did notice that your post was after the fact and you didn't seem to defend them originally.

    The following is from an article at SEEKING ALPHA about the value of stocks according to Graham.
    Conclusion:
    BB&T Corporation does not qualify for either the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor. The company has not demonstrated sufficient growth over either the 5 year or 10 year period. Value investors seeking to follow the ModernGraham approach based on Benjamin Graham's methods may find better opportunities elsewhere through research,

  • A share of stock in BBT EOD 12/31/1998 was $39.16. A share of stock in BBT EOD 2/11/2014 was $37.62. The quarterly dividend in 1998 was 17.5 cents a share and it is now 23 cents a share.
    In the years between 1998 and 2014 just how much has the BOD and executives received in salary, bonuses, stock optiions and additional insurance and perks? Was this pay based on the job done?
    What happened to the concept that the shareholders were the owners and were suppose to receive the benefits of ownership?

  • The new financial site seems to be a real mess. I can't seem to get signed on to it with any regularity . Having problems getting my own portifilios up on the site and a really big chore to try to get the protifilios to print out. Does anyone believe that a first class company would allow this to continue for 4 days?

    Big Bank CEO: No Dividend Increase in 2014

    If you're a shareholder of BB&T and were hoping it'd raise its dividend next year, I have bad news for you. According to its CEO Kelly King, the mid-Atlantic-based bank isn't planning on doing anything of the sort.

    "There is still this downward pressure ... in terms of dividend payout rates," Kelly said on the company's most recent earnings call. He then went on to explain that it will be "challenging to raise dividends at a high level because ... we already have a very high level in terms of payout and dividend yield."

    What Kelly is referring to when he mentions "downward pressure" is the Federal Reserve-administered comprehensive capital analysis and review process, or CCAR, which gives the central bank an up-or-down vote on a bank's capital plans.


    In this year's CCAR instructions, the Fed didn't mince words, saying that "requests that imply common dividend payout ratios above 30% of projected after-tax net income available to common shareholders in either the BHC baseline or supervisory baseline will receive particularly close scrutiny."

    Herein lies BB&T's dilemma.


    As you can see in the chart above, it distributed nearly 54% of its earnings to shareholders over the last 12 months. This is more than any of its close competitors. For instance, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and U.S. Bancorp all sport payout ratios in and around the 30% threshold.

    The net result is that, for better or for worse, BB&T will be left with share buybacks as the only means to return capital to shareholders

  • Would someone try to explain just what real incentive Kelly King, BOD and executives have to really increase the share price? In my opinion they get big bucks regardless of what the share price is and or does. Check back to about 1998 or so and I think you will find the share price at that time was much higher than it is today. In the meantime the BOD and the executives have been getting paid like they were doing a good job. Just have many times do the shareholders (owners) have to pay to plow the same field over and over? Share price below several years ago, dividend has been cut yet the executives are still making lots of money. Is this just the same good old boy network at work?

  • Know this is probably not the correct board for this, but interested to know if anyone has had trouble with new GM cars headlights fogging up? Drove the car about a 100 miles and the headlights were fogged up.
    Just bought a new Cadallic and the dealer says that the headlights having moisture inside of the lens and fogging up is a common problem and no cause for concern. Another GM dealer told me it is a very common problem with most all GM vechicles.
    Just doesn't seem right to me and maybe a real concern of future problems with light bulbs and electric wiring.
    Any comments appreciated.
