Mark Boyar Still Bullish on Bank of America

Mark Boyar, the financial innovator said he is still not giving up on Bank of America during a recent CNBC interview. Boyar discussed his 2013 Forgotten Forty value shares during the segment.   Bank of America Corp (NYSE: BAC) stock is on the widely-followed list and doubled in the past year.  Mark Boyar was explaining why he’s not cashing out.

The annual list causes a stir because of its formidable record.  In 2012, for instance, the Forgotten Forty rose 28.87%, nearly twice the S&P 500 gain of 15.31%.  CNBC’s Gary Kaminsky declared that the Forgotten Forty has outperformed the S&P for “many, many years.”

Every December Boyar publishes The Forgotten Forty, which provides an updated investment thesis on 40 companies that he’s extensively researched over the past year, and are most likely to outperform the leading indices in the year ahead.

Bank of America Corp (NYSE: BAC) stock climbed from $5.23 to $11.00 from December 2011 to December 2012, and Mark Boyar thinks it will keep rising.  Still, Boyar feels Bank of America shares sell at a significant discount to book value.   He says the financial giant is “probably” his favorite large-cap financial stock.

Boyar is not your typical pundit. The value investor’s Boyar value fund has returned 101% since inception in 1998, versus 67% for the S&P 500.
