Bank of America Did It! Sort Of!

Mission somewhat accomplished.

Bank of America Corp will raise its quarterly dividend above a penny for the first time in more than five years after getting a green light from the Federal Reserve, a milestone in its recovery from the financial crisis. The bank said Wednesday that it would raise its dividend to 5 cents a share from 1 cent, after the Fed said that it wouldn’t object. But the bank scrapped its previous request for a $4 billion buyback. Bank of America had received permission in March for the 5-cent dividend and $4 billion share buyback, as part of the Fed’s annual stress tests of large banks, but it was forced to submit a new plan after announcing in April that it had discovered errors in the way it calculated regulatory capital levels.

    Meanwhile the various law firms that have been defending the company against shareholder and govenment lawsuits maintained that $4 Billion in legal fees in the coming year was a good number.
