    What a Piece of junk

    You do realize that a 20 year hold is essentially illiquid and the kind of hold period for something like an office building. And you would expect more like a 15%-20% IRR for your trouble. 8% is pretty weak, and your annualized returns continue to shrink every year you hold. So if in five years this thing is still at $37 will you still be crowing the great investment?

    Decent CEO

    Not a bad investment?...when buying a "risk free" treasury bond in 1998 provided a higher overall return than this common stock? Do you understand what total risk-adjusted return means? Me thinks you need to go back to school. By saying the "oh but this bank did not go under..." is like saying "my neighbor's house burned to the ground but my house still has a few studs remaining" Not like you came out on top either way. there were plenty of investment...tons of investments from stocks, bonds, and commodities that have done better than this thing. But inventors like you are exactly the kind BB&T loves....low information stockholders that dont demand anything.

    As we close out the year. I see that going back 16 years to the day, this stock is up 1%. On an annualized basis, then, the capital appreciation in the stock price is essentially ZERO. So for long term holders, all you have gotten is the dividend. Looking back over those past 16 years, the dividend payment has averaged +/-$1.10 per share, meaning that the annualized total return for this stock, for the past 16 years has been something like 2.9%. 16 years ago you could have bought the US 30-year treasury bond and locked in a 5% yield. What is up with that? Yet the CEO makes $10M per year? Why doesn't the Board simply force the sale of this bank? How do they get long term holders the returns they deserve? 2.9% per annum is completely unacceptable for 16 years. If you add in the pernicious effects of inflation, the real inflation-adjusted return on this stock has been ZERO. So if you are a patient long term investor (i.e. sucker) who has held this stock for 16 years and adjust for the devaluation of the dollar over the same period, this company has delivered NOTHING.
