    I was going to post this exact same thing. Well said. It would have been smarter to buy US treasuries in 1998 than to buy this stock. Wow! A bank full of mediocre managers with mediocre skills, mediocre talent who cannot find a job anywhere else...so they work at the BB&T corp. welfare office. All those great minds from East Carolina University at work. I wonder if they understand the concept of annual compounded rates of return. And at the top of the heap is that gem Kelly King. What a mess, form their stupid scheme to avoid taxes that will cost 700M to bad land loans, a failed credit model, to ripping off pro football players, this is just a bunch of rank amateurs who try to make their numbers by over-managing expenses and massaging their loan loss reserves form 2006. The only winners here have been the EVPs and BOd for the last 15 years.

    LOL....how true. There were investors saying this in the late 90s and they could have bought US Treasuries and done better than owning this stock for 15 years.
