Is Bank of America a $5 Stock or a $10 Stock?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu, CFA, discusses topics across the investing world. Bank of America is amazingly volatile. Its market-leading share trading volume also attests to the popularity and wildness of its stock. In the last year, we've seen its share price come to rest above $10 a share and below $5 a share. Right now, it's in the middle, but what is the true value of a share of Bank of America? Is it closer to $5 or closer to $10? Anand believes the latter and explains in the video below.

    I have had some spinning experiences with this Company, and due to mixed emotions, and short of sounding bias, the bank is not going to succeed the way some investor's would like it to. It's not totally the bank's fault, if there's misfortune, but moreso, the economy. If there is an optimistic turn of events in the economy, then I would bet on the $10 stock. It is not upto the fate of the investor, but in the fate of the US Dollar. I am not currently investing in any bank, for that reason.
