I'm currently focusing on BBT to buy. My thesis is that it may not be as flashy as BAC or C (BAC offered me $120 in cash just to set up a checking and savings account, for example), but that their reputation as a community bank and specific strengths with such things as small-business offerings give them a local, competitive advantage. How is this thesis?As per the title of my message, as a relative newbie to stock investing, I wonder ... how seriously should one take individual complaints of customers against the company in question? Or over 70 complaints? In my research of BBT, I turned up this weblink: http://www.ripoffreport.com/results.asp?submit22=Search+All+The+Latest+Rip-Off+Reports+Now%21&q1=ALL&q2=&q3=&q4=&q5=BB%26T&q6=&q7=Are these isolated incidents? I mean, a company as bit as BBT is bound to have isolated incidents. By the way, C has 98 and BAC 484 complaints on the same site.
