The annual bank stress tests done by the nation's largest banks in conjunction with the Federal Reserve have, at times, produced different outlooks. As banks, like Bank of America, continue to make improvements to their balance sheets, will the Fed give them a more resounding thumbs-up and allow for more dividends for investors?
