Hedge Funds Make Big After Bank of America Rises More Than 7%

Bank of America Corp (BAC) shares soars today and up more than 7% to $6.26 at 1:49PM EST on Thursday. One reason could be that Deutsche Bank reiterates a positive view of banks. According to Barron’s, Citigroup analysts quickly give a buy recommendation on BAC today.
