Can Investors Expect Dividends From Bank of America Corp (BAC) and Citigroup Inc. (C) Any Time Soon?

Though at the bottom of the heap, 10% to 30% isn’t nothing. Both Citi and Bank of America are still working on their internal issues, one of which is poor earnings. Fourth-quarter results for B of A were still very low, at $0.03 per share, while Citi’s $0.69 per share earnings missed estimates by $0.27. Bank of America is likely still skittish about asking the Fed to return capital to investors, and Citi will be happy to finally pass the test.

Things are looking a bit better this year for both banks, however, so it’s possible that the long-suffering investors of these big banks will receive a pleasant surprise in a week’s time.
