He tells us how, a year ago, investors were only hoping for the survival of these banks rather than casting an eye to future growth.

    A majority of today's investors are daytrades and not true investors. In years past, investors invested in companies and enjoyed ownership. Those ownership shares would be past on to following generations. Today, investors look for tomorrow, not a year or two or even three down the road. The future is what counts not the past. I am a long time investor looking down the road and see BAC doubling or more in a few years.
