3 Reasons to Sell Bank of America Today

When considering a position in Bank of America (NYSE: BAC  ) today, many are still bullish despite the risks because of its size and very low share price. But a responsible investor makes sure to always consider the bear perspective, so in this video, Motley Fool analyst Anand Chokkavelu details what some of the risks are with Bank of America.

Bank of America contains some "black boxes" -- unknowns that could present serious risk. Its purchases of Merrill Lynch and Countrywide recently mean that apart from its retail banking, it now has a fully developed Wall Street bank under its umbrella. The bank still faces litigation from the Countrywide acquisition, a big area of potentially hidden risk.

    Austin...Austin...Austin. Just stop. Yes, there are significant risks owning BAC but we all know that in due time this stock will rise in value very very nicely. If this stock doesn't rebound we are all done anyhow. On a totally different topic, boy OH boy were you wrong about Green Mountain. My goodness did you bash and now your short position has been crushed. You should have listened to your elders with better vision and more experience. Good luck and take a closer look at BAC. Its a winner

    Am glad I'm not the only one who is shocked about how many times TMF keeps peddling this same rubbish!

    Every day there's another link to another ill-informed, poorly researched article on here and then there's this link to this same thing

    TMF should be ashamed of themselves - this sort of junk just hits the reputation of the site.
