The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu, CFA, discusses topics across the investing world. Bank of America is amazingly volatile. Its market-leading share trading volume also attests to the popularity and wildness of its stock.

Is it closer to $5 or closer to $10? Anand believes the latter and explains in the video below.
