Big Banks Could Post 30% Dividends: Analyst

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- After the stress test results come out in March banks such as PNC Financial (PNC - Get Report), BB&T (BBT), Fifth Third (FITB - Get Report), U.S. Bancorp (USB - Get Report), Huntington Bancshares (HBAN - Get Report) and Wells Fargo (WFC) may be able to payout a 30 percent dividend, said FBR Capital Markets analyst Paul Miller in a note.

Miller said he believes that JPMorgan (JPM - Get Report) could pay a 20 percent dividend, and that overtime the bank could exceed a 30 percent payout ratio.

"We also note that JPMorgan may hold back on increasing the dividend to that level in the near term, given the company's large allocation of capital to the investment bank and expectation to build out more than 1,500 branches in the next five years," Miller said in a note. Miller adds that Bank of America (BAC - Get Report) should be able to pay a dividend of 10 cents on a quarterly basis.
