Shayne Heffernan said “Bank of America Corp NYSE:BAC is looking a touch high at the moment, at 27 times earnings, for now it looks ready to move back in to the $7-8 dollar range. Anything close to 7 would make BAC a long term buy.
A recent upgrade gave BAC a lift but based on the financials, the impact of Dodd-Frank and Volcker I have trouble getting excited about the stock moving forward from here, the tock should settle in a lower range before moving forward, consolidation is overdue.”
