Is BoA’s (NYSE:BAC) Dividend Going to be Any Higher in 2015?


To the delight of its investors, BoA (NYSE:BAC)got the consent of raising its profit this year from the Federal Reserve System which would give its investors a revenue of about 1%.Butit is still drifting behind the revenues of its rivals such as Wells Fargo(NYSE:WFC) and J.P. Morgan (NYSE:JPM) as well as others. So, what investors now need to solicit is whether BoA (NYSE:BAC) will raise its profit in 2015 or not?


The convictions of financial analysts are really surprising regarding this.According to analysts, the shareholders of BoA (NYSE:BAC) have had a lot of years to wait for profit increments and they can expect the same from 2015. This certainty does not come from the fact that BoA (NYSE:BAC) is a thriving business which it isn’t as far as productivity is concerned. Despite the fact that BoA (NYSE:BAC) quintupled its profit toward the start of August this year, from about $0.01 to $0.05 for every share, it still just produces an aggregate of around $2 billion every year.


That value is a tenth of what banks based in North Carolina would soon be making on a yearly premise.The only saving grace for the BoA (NYSE:BAC) is the Federal Reserve. It has a veto power on all the capital allocation choices in all the major banks of the country. But if it is assumed that BoA (NYSE:BAC) will keep on diminishing legal and working expenses, the Federal Reserve will probably refuse to give any reasonable increase when the detailed capital investigation and audit process takes place in March.

But numbers don’t recount the entire story. The profit payout ratio of BoA (NYSE:BAC) remained at a striking 70% through the initial nine months of 2014 and it was double of what opponent Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) made at the same time at 35%.This year, BoA (NYSE:BAC)’s lawsuit cost remains at an amazing $16 billion which is $12.2 billion more than it had invested at this point a year ago. In the same quarter last year, the revenue of BoA (NYSE:BAC) remained at only 4.7% and in due course, the Federal System allowed it to raise its profit from $0.01 to $0.05 for every share.

These signs demonstrate that most of BoA (NYSE:BAC)’s expenses in legal settlements will arrive at an end soon enough.But some analysts believe that to avoid the same financial crises of 2008, BoA (NYSE:BAC) is likely to pay a higher profit in 2015 as compared to 2014.The CEO, Brian Moynihan has stated that the corporation has now more assets than it did when it requested for the profit increment to $0.05 for every share.

Moreover, the corporation’s forward profit force can now be estimated easily considering the fact that the worst of its legal expenses have been paid off.
