Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), Bank of Internet (NASDAQ:BOFI), and M&T Bank (NYSE:MTB) are all banks. That's basically where the similarities end. Every bank holds different assets than their competitors, relies on different revenue streams, and also has different funding sources. This last point is often overlooked by investors.
