Our Real Money team chose Bank of America (BAC - Get Report) as its stock of the day (#RealMoneySOD) and it got us thinking about the company that really is "America's Bank."

While the stock is down around 2.7% year-to-date, it's up over 20% over the last three years, beating out many of his fellow bank company brethren.

BAC reported earnings per share of $0.63 which is $0.06 better than expectations. Revenues were down slightly from last year but slightly ahead of estimates. Overall, the company's numbers look stronger than other banks that have reported so far. 

And there has been a lot of love for the stock over the last few days from the likes of Cramer and our contributors.
