If you invested in Bank of America (NYS: BAC) at the beginning of this year, then you deserve a pat on the back. Shares in the nation's second largest bank by assets have absolutely soared in the meantime, up a remarkable 76% since the beginning of January. This makes it the top performing stock on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEX: ^DJI) by a long shot. The runner-up, Home Depot (NYS: HD) , is a staggering 25 percentage points behind.
Glad to see they are doing so well at the sacrifice of their customers.
