Value Investors Club issues a terminal short recommendation on Bank of America

Value Investors Club, or VIC for short, has come to the resounding conclusion that Bank of America is a terminal cancer patient, and offers up the following recommendation for the stock.

Terminal short the stuffing out of it.

The thesis summary is rather self-explanatory: "Bank Of America equity is worthless. CFC-related litigation is going from bad to worse, it can lead to violent erosion of shareholders' equity which. Combined with the run on the bank that has slowly begun, the $53 trillion in derivatives, the lack of sustainable competitive advantages and the depleting political influence, I believe this is a terminal short." - Zerohedge
Since Bank of America is expecting the Fed, FDIC and Taxpayers to soon bail out the dying giant, perhaps this recommendation is only fair for the public to get their pound of flesh before the too big to fail institution robs them blind.
