  • Bank Of America - High Margin Of Safety, High Return Potential [View article]
    Indeed and in fact, yours truly misread the closing price of BAC yesterday. It was 15.56. Add 11 more pennies to the staggering price appreciation long-term investors have enjoyed over more than five years!

  • Bank Of America - High Margin Of Safety, High Return Potential [View article]
    We are not confident the big bosses of Bank of America have a reassuring comprehension of the massive derivative exposure to this unwieldy financial conglomerate. Nor regulators, for that matter. Putting dollars into BAC shares is more imprudent speculation than prudent investing at this point, in our humble opinion.

    Incidentally, at yesterday's close of 15.45, April 17, 2015, BAC is trading a mere 21 cents above the opening price of 15.24 more than five years ago, Jan. 4, 2010 after CEO Brian Moynihan grabbed the reins. In the interim, shares of superior-managed financials soared along with the overall market.

  • Bank Of America: Buy The Dip, It Will Not Last [View article]
    Here's the undeniable commercial reality:

    "Normalised earnings" for the past five years for this intractably troubled Bank have reflected continuing, recurring and regular massive legal and litigation expenses and fines. Legal charges are an integral part of the cost of doing business for this corrupt enterprise, like it or not. …funfun..

  • Citi: BofA a buy on valuation and rate hikes [View news story]
    Any hapless but hopeful investor who bought BAC Jan. 4, 2010 @ 15.24 when the bumbling Brian Moynihan first took the controls as CEO, has only 55 cents of stock appreciation after more than five years, based on yesterday's closing price @ 15.79, April 16, 2015. Plus a few pennies and Buffalo Nickels for quarterly dividends.

    But be "p a t i e n t", the pumped-up proponents and promoters of Bank of America Management persistently proclaim.

    Gotta laugh…funfun..

  • GM shielded from certain ignition-switch lawsuits, judge rules [View news story]
    Apparently you are so under-educated as to fail to realise that there is more than one perfectly proper way to spell many words in the rich english language. Stop your heckling, which adds nothing to the substance of discussion here.

    Essentially what the Bank's ethically crippled Management has done over the past decade is buy their way out of jail, evading potential criminal charges by settling charges on a civil level on behalf of the Bank at enormous cost to BAC shareholders, $92 billion and still counting. Think of all the rich quarterly dividends and big stock buy-backs $92,000,000,000.00 could have brought.

  • BofA: Room for more cuts in compensation [View news story]
    With CEO Brian Moynihan now reporting to himself as Chairman of his crony-filled Board of obedient Directors, it is even more unlikely there will be a substantial reduction in the money for mediocrity for him and his pals in the high executive suites of this battered Bank. …funfun..

  • Bank Of America Q1 2015 Earnings: Disappointment All Around [View article]
    As long as this dysfunctional financial conglomerate is mired in mediocrity and its veteran Management remains embedded, we cannot bring ourselves to be sanguine on its prospects.

    While we eschew giving specific recommendations to individual investors, BUY, SELL, or HOLD, at the top of our list of financials in our own portfolios are:

    * BB & T (BBT)

    * Glacier Bancorp (GBCI)

    * New Hampshire Thrift Bancshares (NHTB)

    * T. Rowe-Price (TROW), and

    * Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD)

  • GM shielded from certain ignition-switch lawsuits, judge rules [View news story]
    Frantic proponents and protectors of GM Management persist in protesting no one in the Company, especially all of the executives up and down this ethically crippled organisation, had no idea there were deadly defects in millions of deficient GM cars much less defects causing hundreds of deaths and injuries!

    The unfolding testimony of deposed GM personnel in the courts of the land and the continuing criminal and civil investigations by prosecutors and regulators is very likely to expose an entirely different picture.

    So the courts and Congress have given a free pass to this irredeemably corrupt car-maker and its ENRON-cultured Management, a mendacious Management who engineered a massive consumer fraud and cover-up and panhandled strapped American taxpayers for $50 billion?

    Nicholas P. Cheer,

    You sum up the malaise beautifully for investors here. As overwhelmingly negative as the numbers and history have been for years, bullish analysts like Pavlov's dogs will pounce on yet another quarter of intractable weakness and bark out BUY, BUY, BUY…

    Now that Brian Moynihan, CEO, reports to himself as Chairman of the Bank Board chock full of his hand-picked docile Directors, the bar can be set even lower, maybe even buried a couple of metres below ground in Charlotte, North Carolina!

    Thank you for your acknowledgment.

    Incidentally, we don't "cut and paste" as you charge. Every observation is expressed originally and differently, but with the same compelling conclusion: This Bank could be outstanding but for the quality and performance of its embedded veteran Management and their destructive corporate culture.

    Our judgement is not based on a mere quarter, but rather the past eight years of massive fraud, malmanagement, and striking sub-performance.
