4/13/15: Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC) is scheduled to release Q1 results Wednesday morning. Wall Street is looking for the second-biggest U.S. bank by assets to report EPS of $0.29, up from $0.10 YOY. Revenue is seen slipping 5.5% to $21.51 billion. The absence of $6 billion in legal expenses that BofA took in Q1 2014 is anticipated to have widely helped YOY results. Trading profits could also be a bright spot. Banks like BofA make money when markets jump around. Q1 was jumpy indeed. While March was a bit soft, volatility and volume were brisk during the first two months of the year. BofA could surely use a good quarter after disappointing investors in March. After the Fed’s stress test showed some weakness, BofA failed to raise its dividend. At $15.80, BofA shares are down 11.68% year to date.
