(Bloomberg) Bank of America Corp. (BAC) may have to build its capital cushion by $50 billion and renege again on Chief Executive Officer Brian T. Moynihans pledge to raise the firms dividend as mortgage losses drain funds.

Expenses tied to soured home loans may total $20.4 billion in the second quarter, pulling the bank further from capital ratios demanded under new international standards, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based company said June 29. The gap may equal 2.75 percent of risk-weighted assets starting in 2013 -- at about $18 billion for each percentage point -- crimping Moynihans ability to raise dividends and repurchase shares.

They are likely to be in capital-building mode for longer than previously anticipated, Jason Goldberg, a Barclays Capital analyst, said in an interview. For now, he said, Im hard-pressed to see meaningful capital redeployment.

Moynihan, 51, has booked about $30 billion in settlements and writedowns to clean up mortgage liabilities at the biggest U.S. bank since succeeding Kenneth D. Lewis last year. As the costs mounted, Bank of Americas stock declined 25 percent this year, the worst showing in the 24-company KBW Bank Index. The company reports second-quarter results tomorrow and has told investors to brace for a loss of as much as $9.1 billion. ................(more)

1. JFC, who didn't see that coming?
The rest of their liar-loans and adjustable-rate mortgages aren't due until 2013. They're in for two more years of hell.
