    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?

  • 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?
