There is not a very realistic way they can buy back enough stock to lower the float.. Wish they had done that at $6-$7 though.. Like RBS bought a lot of their preferred back at half price. Pays over 6% dividend
But you and i know that his Bro,and Sistas make up about 15% of the population, and that brings his rating down to around 25%
The question is, what's YOUR point? I'm sure there were presidents with lower ratings than BUSH, so what, because somebody had lower ratings, that means Obama is doing a good job? You remind me of when my daughter got her first speeding ticket. She thought that saying, "well, other people were speeding too" was some kind of justification. It wasn't.
ding ding........that is the bell signaling recess is over ........back into the classroom for the finger painting session that you love so much where you can rant about your few thousand share short position....and where part of it is under water at 15.72 and the remaining will be under very shortly....
That's great that they could survive but there is still the issue of making money to return to shareholders.
Didn't someone say other banks are turning away deposits ? So you want BAC to invest in a society with what kinds of social trends and future?

MIRAMANEE: Perhaps you would like to bathe now.
KIRK: Miramanee, tell me about the Wise Ones.
MIRAMANEE: Tell? But a god knows everything.
KIRK: Not this one. Tell me.
MIRAMANEE: The Wise Ones brought us here from far away. They chose a medicine chief to keep the secret of the temple and to use it when the sky darkens.
KIRK: Secrets of the temple.
MIRAMANEE: There are no lacings. (his uniform top) How is this thing removed?
KIRK: The secrets were passed on from father to son?
MIRAMANEE: Yes. How does this open?
KIRK: Well, why doesn't Salish use it? Why are the people in danger?
MIRAMANEE: His father did not wish to share his power too soon. He died before he told Salish the secret.

KIRK: Ki, Kir

My guess would be it'll go to 7 or 8 cents. They'll want to leave room to continue increasing it, but not set expectations it can ramp up a nickel every year. BAC used to only raise it a penny or two a year, before the 2000s finance-based economy and all the Lewis-era acquisitions. They're reverting to being a risk-averse lender. It's not a recepie for fast growth.
yes, but there is a read across from the results today--not the basic result that everyone "passed", but that BAC's actual numbers look reasonably high relative to peers...& means that they should get the modest buybacks approved next week even with the move off of "parallel" monitoring.
I'm sure there will be plenty of "read-across" notes tomorrow morning saying basically the same thing. You can't possibly believe the after-hours rally was because the market had actually priced in them failing today, right?
If our taxes (and spending) weren't onerous, why would they leave, or leave money elsewhere? Trying to tax everybody for everything several times over sometimes, will eventually be self-defeating. Sounds like it's well on its way now.
BAC investors, discuss BAC on a big day, and here you come with all your nonsense. Why don't you find another board for your idiotic racist hate filled nonsense?
You didn't finish by saying Mark my Post. A Quick question--is $16.35
Close to $16.50?? What number is not close to $16.50?--Would it be $12.00?
You and Stevens should hook up.
