2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Guru Investment Theses on Bank of America Corporation

Bruce Berkowitz Comments on Bank of America - Feb 10, 2015

Bank of America (BAC) (22.3%) has executed its business plan admirably to date. By refocusing on core customer relationships across multiple platforms (i.e., checking, credit card, mortgage, and small business), the company is positioning itself for long-term profitability. Effective cross-fertilization of these services will make parallels with best-in-class Wells Fargo more pronounced, and help Bank of America’s still-depressed market price to at least reach book value, reflecting the higher values of existing business. The company recently surpassed its 2011 cost-cutting goal of $8 billion per annum, ahead of schedule. Litigation expenses – a major weight on the company in recent years– have largely dissipated. Heeding lessons learned from the financial crisis, the company prudently disposed of a profitable (at the time) wholesale mortgage business. Intermediaries might seem like ideal clients, but history shows that they are more adversary than friend. Investors should not be surprised to see Bank of America continue to shrink no-longer-core activities. However, the company’s balance sheet is poised for a growing business economy and a rising interest rate environment, with every increase of 100 basis points potentially boosting revenue by $3.7 billion. Sometimes you must take two steps back in order to go ten steps forward.

Bruce Berkowitz Comments on Bank of America - Aug 04, 2014

Bank of America (BAC) common stock is the Fund’s third largest position. Acquiring and then fixing Countrywide Financial has cost the bank tens of billions. Finishing the task will, in our view, allow much more to drop to the bank’s bottom line.

From Bruce Berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s Fairholme Fund Second Quarter 2014 Shareholder Letter.

Bill Nygren and David Herro Comment on Bank of America - Apr 14, 2014

Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) was the top contributor for the quarter, returning 11%. The company's most recent quarterly earnings report demonstrated continued progress toward achieving management's expense reduction targets, driven in large part by declines in the cost of servicing its "legacy" mortgages. As management executes on its plan, investors have increasingly recognized the normalized earning power of Bank of America. We believe the combination of further operational improvements and the company's plan to return capital to shareholders – through its recently increased dividend and additional repurchase authorization – will lead to continued gains in the stock.

Bill Nygren Comments on Bank of America - Apr 10, 2014

Another top performer was our largest position, Bank of America (NYSE:BAC). We still think the financial services sector is attractively valued, and with Bank of America, we are pleased to see investors recognize better visibility of higher future earnings and an enhanced capacity to return excess capital to shareholders.
