Bank of America (BAC) sold off despite reporting $21.6 billion in revenue and earnings per share of $1.03 for the second quarter, along with the release of $2.2 billion in loan loss reserves. However, management said net interest income fell 6% compared to the same quarter last year due to the low interest-rate environment.
