Bank of America Corporation: analytical review

InstaForex

Fundamental analysis

Thanks to Donald Trump’s statements during the election campaign on the reduction of the regulatory framework in the field of financial services, coupled with the expectation of increasing interest rates, Bank of America shares have risen by 45% since November 2016. Despite the significant growth, the stock was trading with a factor of 1.01 to the carrying value, with the shares of direct competitors trading with a factor of 1.50 to the carrying value. Is the current price fair? It’s hard to judge. However, large investors would recommend to keep the shares of Bank of America in the long term. In the short term, there is a potential growth due to the upcoming Trump’s speech.

Last week Bank of America shares fell by 1.42%. The S&P500 for the same period increased by 0.10%.
