The guessing game for how much in the way of capital returns regulators will allow the banks begins, and Bernstein ups its expectations for Bank of America (BAC) to a quarterly rate of $0.025 ($0.01 now) and JPMorgan (JPM) to $0.35 ($0.30 now). Bernstein also expects BofA to get approval for a $3B share buyback, and JPMorgan $8B.

    The CEO says just look at the bottom line and see how I"ve increased the net worth of the company and base my year end bonus on the results I've achieved.

    Buyback! Just an excuse for the CEO to give himself (and not the long suffering stockholders) a bonus!

    Yes yes yes BAC is going to go up, and so are plenty of other banks. They have been down so low for so long there is no other place to go. Well I guess some could go belly up.
    Every balanced portfolio needs a financial and there are plenty to chose from, locals regionals and internationals. Some are good some are bad and lots are mediocre. I have a hard time with bank's financial documents I often get a funny feeling that something is being cooked so I go by the p/e rate the growth rate; who's running the company and if they have a dividend that is stable or going to grow.
