1-Minute Earnings Preview: BB&T

In the following video, Motley Fool financial analyst Matt Koppenheffer tells investors what they need to be watching when BB&T (NYSE: BBT  ) reports earnings this Thursday. Like we saw when Wells Fargo reported last week, a number of banks are going to be experiencing compressing net interest margins, the amount the bank keeps as profit between the rate at which they borrow and the rate at which they lend. We will want to see if these margins are also compressing at BB&T, by how much, and what the bank is doing to combat that in its other sectors where it charges banking fees. 

With big finance firms still trading at deep discounts to their historic norms, investors everywhere are wondering if this is the new normal, or if finance stocks are a screaming buy today. The answer depends on the company, so to help you figure out whether BB&T should be on you radar, I invite you to read our premium research report on the company today. We'll fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell BB&T, and what areas that BB&T investors need to watch going forward. Click here now for instant access!
