Will Bank of America Be Able to Boost Its Dividend?

Last night, investors saw the results of the Dodd-Frank stress tests come out, and Bank of America's (NYSE: BAC  ) results were reasonably strong, showing that the bank has been able to increase the amount of capital it's holding. But is it healthy enough to ask for an increase to its dividend from the Fed next week, after the CCAR stress test results are released?

In this video, Motley Fool financials analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson talk about how B of A compares to Citigroup (NYSE: C  ) , which has said it will not ask for a dividend increase; Matt tells us why he will be disappointed if B of A doesn't, either.
