  • Bank Of America - Loan Growth And Operational Efficiencies Augur Well For The Future [View article]
    Had a great day today, supported by a big rally in the mkt. I also, am anxious to see the end of the week which should prove the stock can stand on its own, being supported by strong 3rd quarter results. It is really funny (but not prior to the release of the results) how all of the commentators predicted JPM to show the best results, as BAC was to be questionable. A lot showed their stupidity and should be appologitic for their ignorance.. Must admit, I had an uneasy feeling prior to the release.

    I do believe we will be in the $20's, not within a year or two, but within the next year (maybe in the first quarter?).

    LOL to BAC investors even though I don't think it is needed.

  • Why I Am Buying Bank Of America This Week (Again) [View article]

    The anticipated rate rise has been built in many times over, again and again. I have held tough with BAC many times over, again and again. I am beginning to wonder if BAC is a $16.00 per share stock, again and again. I have heard things that it is going to $20.00, or it is a $30.00 stock, and even we compare it to JPM at around $60.00. True, BAC has been faced with many fines and penalties, but that is behind us and BAC still has failed to respond. We talk about rate hikes and book value, all of which has failed to give us the performance of the stock to break $19.00 per share. I have a significant position in the stock as well as the B warrants. If you look at the warrants alone, they have about 3 years to convert at around $30.00 per common share. The warrants are trading at about $0.27 which may say that there is a heck of a lot of people out there that are saying the conversion will never happen. Many savvy investors indicate that the stock will hit $20.00 before it will break into the $14.00 per share bracket again. With the earnings report coming out in the early morning hours of tomorrow, I am getting the soured gut feeling that a short sale might the a safe bet with respect to the earnings release. At any rate it has been an exciting ride from the $5.00 per share that everyone refers to,and I am well ahead of the game, but hanging in there at about $16.00 per share for years (that I don't like to admit) dilutes the significant gain in a hurry. Still long on BAC so lets get a good nights sleep as we know that $18.00 per share will one day, again (and again) will raise our hopes but probably not our fortunes.

  • Immunomedics Announces Fiscal 2015 Results and Clinical Program Developments [View article]
    Appears the stock price during today's market activity reflected a negative reaction to this aftermarket news prior to its release. Interesting.

  • Bank Of America Offers Investors Little Value [View article]
    If I read you tables on customer-satisfaction, etc., I see that BAC ranked lower than most, but I also noted that from the 2013 to 2014, BAC had a significant increase over the others. BAC must be on track as an investment opportunity and must also point out that in 2013, they were under personal attack by the DOJ, and ended up with about 80 B in penalties and fines,,,,and as of this day, are in a relatively strong position for those that have hung tough during the past several years. I believe that BAC's time is just around the corner. Still long, positive, and feel pretty good about BAC being the major player in my portfolio.

  • Bank Of America: Are We Going Sideways For Another Year? [View article]
    It is hard and sad, but I am beginning to express similar notions. It is mind boggling in the realization of how long I have held this stock without it's appreciation in value. On top of that, what monetary value have I lost year after year holding significant shares of this company, as the stock continues to drift sideways. To make matters worse, I am in the position of gains (from some time back) that I hate to liquidate due to my tax structure. Do we really want to wait another YEAR for this thing to take off? How many years have we been waiting? WOW!

    Question: Do the Fed's use the same rules for all financial institutions or do they single out one, to use as an example of the Fed's abilities?

  • Heading Into Stress Test, Bank Of America Too Cheap To Ignore [View article]
    I bank with BAC as well as Wells. Left town last week, but failed to make a deposit with Wells. Realizing this late Saturday, I rationalized a deposit with Wells Monday as I would be passing through Hot Springs, AR. My On-Star indicated several Wells facilities within, so, no problem. Much to my surprise, Wells had closed all facilities and apparently moved out of Hot Springs. None in Arkadelphia but, finally one in Texarkana, to my relief. Must agree with Seanebr as to customer service, mobile online platforms, 24 hour/7 day service, that BAC is no slouch. Will continue with Wells, but it is comforting to have a full service BAC in my arena.

  • Southwest Airlines broadens deal with Amadeus [View news story]
    Prices have a long way to go to get back to square one. The 20% which you refer to is from the bottom. They are down about 50% from a $100.00 a barrel (which some refer as the top,,,,,,,,,,,I think I once we saw $108.00 for WTI). If this is the wrong way to look at this Tom, let us know. In addition, we are still below $2.00 per gallon for reg. throughout Texas. Sorry for the oilfield workers (many of which are friends), but they have had a great ride in high wages, bonuses, as well as handsome packages in take takeovers for several decades. Enjoy this while it lasts.
