Obama Tax May Cost JPMorgan, Bank of America $1.5 Billion Each ...
Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The Obama administration’s proposal to tax financial firms may cost JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America Corp. more than $1.5 billion each, hinder the industry’s recovery and stifle investor interest in bank stocks, analysts and investors said. “This is not conducive to an investor-friendly environment,” said Peter Sorrentino, who helps manage $13.8 billion at Huntington Asset Advisors in Cincinnati. “Profit will be hampered by this tax.
