Bank of America could pay $6.8 billion to FHFA

To many bank watchers, that’s a jolt. Betsy Graseck, an analyst at Morgan Stanley, cut her per-share earnings estimates for Bank of America and Goldman after the J.P. Morgan settlement, predicting that they’ll have to set aside more in legal reserves.
