4 Things to Look For in Bank Earnings

Bank earnings season kicked off on Friday, with Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC  ) and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM  ) reporting. Both beat earnings estimates, but their stocks fell on the news, as the market clearly expected even better reports. The rest of the big banks are in the process of reporting this week, including Citigroup (NYSE: C  ) today, Bank of America (NYSE: BAC  ) , and Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS  ) . In the preceding video, Fool.com analyst Anand Chokkavelu discusses mortgages, lawsuits, regulations, and economic signs, which are four key things investors should be watching over the course of the next week.

Bank of America is hands-down the most talked-about bank out there, which is why Anand has written an in-depth premium research report in the hopes of educating and guiding investors on everything they need to know about this complex company. The report details Bank of America's prospects, including reasons to buy and sell, and as an added bonus, he'll provide a year's worth of key updates on the company as news develops.
