Bank of America (BAC) has reduced the size of its investment banking division in Hong Kong, including cutting staff such as Winnie Ng and Jessica Li, due to declining revenue and challenging market conditions in the region. This downsizing follows a broader trend among financial institutions in Hong Kong, with other major banks like Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan also reducing their workforce. Bank of America has a significant market capitalization of $258.66 billion and attractive valuation metrics, such as a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10.57 and a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 0.98, suggesting that the stock may be reasonably valued. Additionally, the company has a strong dividend track record, having raised its dividend for 10 consecutive years and maintained dividend payments for 53 consecutive years. Analysts also predict that the company will be profitable this year, making it financially stable in a challenging environment.
