Trump to Double Bank of America Corp Stock

Although Bank of America Corp stock had outperformed the market during the course of Wednesday’s session, BAC stock, including the bank stocks in general, exemplifies one of the few giant industries that are not trading nearly at all-time highs.

However, Trump doesn’t mean “do away with all oversight”, rather to get rid of the lapses that hinders banks from lending, making money, and being an asset towards economic growth.
