Bank of America posts 1stQ profit; stocks fall

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Bank of America Corp. posted strong first-quarter earnings Monday as higher revenue from the purchase of Merrill Lynch & Co. helped offset a surge in credit costs. Wall Street, concerned about banks' continuing loan problems, looked past Bank of America's profit and fell sharply.

Bank of America's results surpassed analysts' expectations. But like other banking companies, it is still stuggling with fallout from the recession, taking a hefty $13.4 billion provision for credit losses.

Is your potential employee confident or arrogant?

There's a fine line between confidence and arrogance, and unfortunately in business, it can be the make-or-break quality of a successful leader. Arrogant leaders are prone to being disagreeable and aggressive; they tend to push down their employees, drain away motivation and loyalty and paralyze productivity. Erika Napoletano, in a recent Entrepreneur.com article, calls arrogance “the idiot cousin of the confident businessperson.” Motivational sales trainer Patrick Henry Hansen, who has advised my company on a number of issues over the years, puts it this way: Confidence is always attractive, and arrogance is always repulsive.
