    No, it's a value PRISON! Break it up, give shareholders the REAL VALUE of this combined comedy of errors and place the logo and memory in the Smithsonian.............afterall, the ONLY interested party associated with BAC that has NOT BEEN rewarded is the shareholder. The FED , the Treasury, Mr "M", the former twisted CEO of Wash Mutual, many Exec types at Merrill (though Merrill faces growing attrition rates as I understand it) , have all gotten theirs.................while shareholders are required to continue to ASSUME the POSITION and expect what ever comes while symbolicaly holding their ankles.

    Okay, is it the FED? Why don't we HEAR any verbal frustration from BAC? Or talk of the over regulation by FED? Where is the impetus for the FED to open the door for BAC to increase buy backs and the DIV?

    I mean to refresh everyones memory. we were actually PROMISED years ago....a DIV increase which took, if memory serves, no less than 3 years after the promise was made and the increase though large in percentage gain, was still an unheard of fraction of total EPS.

    I don't HEAR a blank-blank WORD from the banking industry on being over regulated nor, concerning the incompetence of those doing the regulating.

    GOV agencies are about as effective as hiring a person to be a BUSINESS TEACHER, that has NEVER BEEN A BUSINESS OWNER! Or better yet, hiring a MATH TEACHER that has done NOTHING but get a teaching degree in MATH but no real life experience in conveying.thus motivating students to LEARN and take advantage of excelling in MATH!

    Oops.....that's right...we actually do that in edumacation. Mr "M"..........where are YOU?

    dwt...LOL! How original! Here's a better idea, don't read my posts if you are not happy with them. Oh and also, MANY, MANY BAC shareholders share my view on BAC performance so, you should live in your world of happiness and IGNORE we who criticize what deserves being criticized.

    It must be hard to be the GATE KEEPER of the Yahoo Invest. board policing up BAC comments you disagree with !

  • Meanwhile, we shareholders, peasants really, are left hand washing our undies in the very water BAC forces us to drink from....................

    or "if I'm in a hurry" ! NOT ! Though the drive is close, the line and wait justifies driving alittle further to a store WHERE even MANAGEMENT opens a resgister when the lines are too long! Buh BYE, WMT !

  • boar292hog by boar292hog Feb 10, 2016 2:39 PM Flag

    Standard operating procedures.... . The Kietzke store in Reno NV is a class "B" store size wise, it carries between 3k and 5k fewer lines than the new/bigger stores. This store just went through an interior re-organization of aisles etc.

    Well it is a Wednesday, 10:00 AM and there are 3 cashiers at work. The line wait is 15 to 20 minutes, the manager, the Gal (who wears that head cover) is on the phone the entire time, inside the customer service counter. Needless to say, anyone who bought ice cream or something similar now has a reason for concern. True, it is likely the product is perfectly okay and besides, maybe this is a risk worth taking on the part of WMT.

    Well, we could all drive south to the big new WMT but why bother, there is a WINCO between the two stores. Could drive north and/or West...or even East and hit another newer, bigger WMT store but there is also a WINCO and two COSTCO's. Not that everyone can get there but, most can.

    Perhaps the smaller, older WMT stores are allowed to serve their customers with a lower/slower sense of urgency, I don't know. Or hey, maybe this was the so called, "perfect storm" of retail !

    Either way, WMT, you have earned 3rd place now, I will only visit ANY of your stores when I have NO OTHER CHOICE or if I am in a hurry. While I don;t speak for Costco or WInco............I'm sure they must love the customers you steer there way. I am in a bit of a different situation than most in that we live in a bit of an extended Family circumstance...hence I do ALOT of shopping WEEKLY.

    Not that it matters...I mean what's one customer right? Problem is, NO ONE was very happy with the wait......and that puts about 30 of us at the 3 registers......yes there is a self checkout.....which is great for small items, or a few SMALL Items............


  • PETER, Peter, are a WONDERFUL example of how Career Politicians have RUINED our nation at any and all cost. ANY and ALL private, for profit entities SHOULD LEAVE CA. if they are not making money. YOU SIR, are supposed to be helping BUILD a BRIDGE between Public and Private and YOU HAVE and like always, ARE FAILING.

    COme over to RENO, DOLT! We'll take you out on a desert safari, introduce you to JAKE NO SHOULDERS, the SNAKE , you can play with him until he is tired and when he bights you, we'll call in a med-evac and get you to some distant hospital and you'll be able to see for yourself how well JOKEBAMA CARE works!

    Of course this would be far more effective a first hand experience for you if we did it in Death Valley! Problem is, EVERYONE WHO CAN AFFORD moving out of California because of the FALSE PROFIT like promises that YOU so KNOQINGLY and therefore, WRONGFULLY, defend!

    I brought JAKE the SNAKE up to emphasize for all the. the uselessness of the SNAKE OIL spewed by YOU and your Fearless Leader, OBAMAJOKE !

    Funny how YOU, with ZERO experience owning a business FOR PROFIT....dealing with the avalanche of regulations, complex and ever changing tax codes HAVE NO CLUE about CREATING necessary INTERFACE with Public/Private interests have been given so much responsibility. It's as thought the PATIENTS NOW RUN the leftist created asylum which was once called the UNITED STATES.

    E #$%$ to the Nth you unedumacated LOSER!

  • It is worth far more Dead than Alive!

  • Once again, SHAREHOLDERS are getting KICKED in the , well, you know where and BAC gets yet another very early 2016 Christmas gift via market volatility. Yes, the P-P-Performance of the stock price is SAVED byu the market volatility giving BAC leadership the cover they need to huddle behind the smoke and drag this thing out HOPING for a positive yet another year, or two, or ten.

    Meanwhile while watching the Share Price OXIDIZE.....once again, the DIV is embarrassingly low at a nickle per quarter.

    BREAK THIS PIG up, spin off M.L., sell existing under performing mortgages..........trash Wash,-Mutual assets.and break the BANK up for regional competitors to add to their own banking portfolios.

    BAC seems good for everyone EXCEPT SHAREHOLDERS and Brokers at M.Lynch.

    Sell off remaining Wash Mutual paper......sell off all mortgage administration assets......IPO Merrill to BAC Shareholders and open market..................break up bank into regional assets and sell.

    LETs END THE MISERY NOW...............................the DIV is a joke, the stock performance is a nightmare.....the attrition of key brokers at Merrill has left it an empty house........and BAC Shareholders can make more selling a pint of blood everyother week than watching the BAC disappearing act.

  • The CHINESE NEW YEAR is the biggest Chinese Holiday so my guess is that smart phone sales may benefit from such. Just a guess...I mean CHina is ONLY GROWING at 5% now...however, the consumer ranks among the middle class continues to EXPAND! GULP!

    So naysayers put yer cups on, you might be getting kicked hard! LMAO!

    Theeeee most obvious thing about Hillary, aside from her incompetence and pure wenchism, is that she is in this game for HERSELF, always has been and always will be. I hope everyone realizes that HagHillary has ONE CHANCE at side-stepping the law, and that is the Presidency.

    Where is ISIS when you need them!?..............KIDDING! Don't wet yer pants LIBTOIDs !

  • BAC should be bought out, broken up, and added to the Smithsonian. A buyer could spin-off M.Lynch.....breakup the bank itself and sell out to regional and sub-regional banks making their own footprint currently as BAC closes various branches.

    BAC could also SAVE alot of $$ by merely cleaning up their mailing list! LOL! Sending mail to those thaty have been gone FOR YEARS costs money!

    I 'd bet someone ( WFC) would love to assume/administer BAC mortgage division, what's left of it.

    At 13 bucks a share, and a tiny nickle a quarter, BAC might be on a radar or two..........somewhere.........maybe CHINA wants a US BANK.........speaking of which, why certainly, why not US BANK! ?? They could come in, surgically remove THE WASTE and INEFFECTIVE leadership and start MOVING what;s left ! Oh well...........guess we get to watch "GROUNDHOG DAY" minus Bill Murray, plus Mr Moynihan.........!

  • ..and move it's official hqtrs to Ireland! I mean talk about firing a shot across the bow of CONGRESS (who make our tax law), and the IRS who enforces it!

    Our BOOK OF FAVORS is destroying us from within.

    Less than half of all americans even have skin in the game , paying taxes.

    Our TAX CODE assures that all Americans ARE NOT TREATED EQUALLY by our Government.

    Enough you fricking IDIOTS in DC !
