What are Wall Street analysts saying about Bank of America stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Bank of America stock: 1. Vining Sparks analysts commented, "Bank of America’s strong fundamental earnings momentum & the impact of tax reform continues to validate our expectations for 45% earnings growth in 2018E. We would also highlight that this strong earnings momentum has improved Bank of America’s ROTCE by over 3 full percentage points in 1Q’18 and should improve its ROTCE by over another full percentage point by the end of 2018E. Therefore, we believe Bank of America’s price-to-tangible book value should improve towards 195%, suggesting over 15% upside potential." (4/16/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bank of America’s shares have outperformed the industry, over the past six months. This price performance is backed by impressive earnings surprise history as the company surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in each of the trailing four quarters. The company’s fourth-quarter 2017 earnings benefited from higher interest income and investment banking fees as well as lower operating expenses. Rising interest rates, increase in loan and deposit balances, and efforts to manage expenses are expected to continue supporting profitability. The bank’s efforts to streamline and simplify operations as well as gains from the new tax act will aid its financial performance. However, fall in mortgage banking income due to lower volumes and a decline in refinancing activity along with uncertainty related to performance of capital markets remain major concerns."
