There are a number of specific details that investors in Bank of America (BAC -1.66%) should know about its stock. The slideshow below covers a handful of them, walking viewers through a broad, but brief, analysis of the nation's second-biggest bank by assets.
The slideshow shows, among other things, that Bank of America seeks to reward investors in multiple ways:
- After slashing its dividend during the financial crisis of 2008-2009, the North Carolina-based bank is in the process of building this back up, distributing almost a quarter of its earnings to shareholders during the past 12 months.
- Bank of America also buys back stock, spending $1.6 billion to do so during the last four quarters.
- And even though its share price plummeted during the crisis, it has since regained positive momentum.
