Bank of America will be releasing its fourth-quarter earrnings next Friday. It will be anyone's guess as to when WikiLeaks and its founder Julien Assange will release its next scathing document, reportedly aimed at the US bank.
This week, John Carney, a senior editor at CNBC.com confirmed from an anonymous source that WikiLeaks would in fact be targeting Bank of America. Meanwhile, Assange said they are "stepping up [its] publishing for matters related to Cabelgate and other materials."
Earlier this month, The New York Times said the bank was doing some stepping up of its own, assembling a team of officials for a broad internal investigation. Bank of America tells PRWeek they will not comment on internal processes.
Analysts are predicting the Charlotte, NC-based bank to report earnings of 15 cents per share on revenue of $25.26 billion compared to a loss of 60 cents per share on revenue of $25.08 a year ago. This could very well be the perfect time for WikiLeaks to strike with the public, and more importantly, the investors, in plain sight.
