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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bank of America’s shares have outperformed the industry over the past year. Also, the company possesses an impressive earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in each of the trailing four quarters. Its fourth-quarter 2018 results were driven by rise in net interest income, lower operating expenses and decline in provisions. Rise in loan and deposit balances, higher interest rates and efforts to control expenses will likely support profitability. Also, its initiatives to expand into new markets and digital offerings are expected to further enhance cross selling opportunities. However, dismal performance of capital markets has been hurting the company’s investment banking operations. Thus, this is will likely hamper its fee income growth to some extent in the quarters ahead." (1/23/2019)
  • 2. 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)
