BB&T is A-OK in My Book Real Money Pro($)

BBT provides bank exposure to a relatively strong geography that's growing in excess of the overall U.S. growth rate. Second-quarter profits should rebound from a disappointing first-quarter report, with fee income rising, credit improving, good expense control and an improving loan picture. The bank's projected 2015 return on assets (1.18%) and return on tangible capital (14.6%) exceed most large regional banks' figures. BBT is among the more asset-sensitive banks, profiting from an imbalance of rate-sensitive assets over rate-sensitive liabilities. (The bank's most recent 10Q quantifies the benefit of higher interest rates.) BBT trades at 13x compared to its mid-2000s 15x to 16x multiple.  The shares have flatlined over the last year. BBT pays a $1.08-a-share dividend, which I see rising to close to $1.20 next year. Secular EPS growth is estimated at 10%. My 12-month price target is $45/share or +11% return.

This is in spite of income problems reflected in reports.

A Few Random Observations Real Money Pro($)

I am constantly surprised, at least over the last four quarters, how investors and the media initially respond euphorically to Caterpillar's earnings. I am staying short as the second-half outlook has deteriorated further based on recent dealer statistics. GM's $0.10 shortfall was from a higher effective tax rate and weak South America region results. I am a $36 buyer. BB&T's (BBT) results were about 2 cents lower than expected, but all from higher loan loss reserves. I am a buyer at $38.10 on today's weakness. Staying short small position in Facebook (FB). Shorted last night after hours at $85.05 and covered some down $2.50 from there.
