    "The strengthening U.S. housing market could be a good signal that the economy is turning, and the second half of 2013 will be the test of that," Banga said.
    But Q2 right now "looks a little dodgy," he added.

    • Not anything new that we don't know. Many banks are fighting for revenue. However, some banks are at a point that cannot increase their income if their revenue do not grow. This is different for BAC since Bofa is reducing a lot of expenses like lawsuits and workforce and savings directly goes directly to its bottom line and earnings.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
