Leadership changes are starting to ripple through Bank of America Corp.’s investment bank as disagreements over risk-taking and a struggle to keep pace with competitors spur high-level departures.

Bank stocks have had a rough 2018 so far, but Oppenheimer is expecting strong third quarter earnings reports to spark an upsurge in their share prices, Barron's reports.

(NYSE: CBRE), declined to comment.
