Stocks DD Cites: Bank of America - TARP warrant thesis


Read, understand and consent to the blog's DISCLAIMER here before proceeding to read the article

Investors that are betting on housing recovery, no big dilution(warrants seem to have some anti-dilution adjustments) in banks to support higher capital requirements due to adoption of basel standards, are buying the unique 8 year warrant(expires 2018 i think) with strike price of $13. It last exchanged hands for ~$4. While probably no investor can understand the complexity of bank of america's financials, the bet is more grounded from macro standpoint.
