07:17 EDTUSBU.S. Bancorp reports Q1 EPS 73c, consensus 73c
Reports Q1 revenue $4.81B, consensus $4.8B. U.S. Bancorp Chairman, President and CEO Richard K. Davis said, “Our first quarter earnings of $1.4 billion, or $.73 per diluted common share, demonstrated our Company’s ability to generate strong results in the face of a slow-growing and uncertain economy. Our industry-leading returns on average assets of 1.56 percent and average common equity of 14.6 percent, combined with our strong efficiency ratio of 52.9 percent, remain among the top performance ratios in our peer group. Our performance clearly reflects the advantage of our diversified business mix and disciplined expense management which has enabled us to withstand the revenue challenges facing our industry in this slow-growth economy. Average loan growth remained strong at 6.0 percent year-over-year and 1.3 percent on a linked quarter basis. Total loan and commitment growth continued to be an area of strength for the Bank, particularly highlighted by our commercial business, which grew loans by 8.5 percent year-over-year and 2.8 percent on a linked quarter basis. This growth demonstrates our ability to gain market share as customers choose to partner with us to expand their businesses when opportunities arise. Credit quality continued to be strong in the first quarter as net charge-offs declined 21.2 percent compared with the prior year and rose modestly on a linked quarter basis due to unusually high recoveries in the prior quarter. Nonperforming assets, excluding covered assets, fell by 1.0 percent and delinquencies also improved in the quarter. Overall credit quality is expected to remain relatively stable in the coming quarters."

07:20 EDTUSBBig banks seen losing reserve release cushion, Reuters says
Releasing loan-loss reserves has helped U.S. big banks weather a period of weak loan demand and lower fee income, but Q2 results from the banks may see less benefit from the practice as loss rates and reserves near their lower limits, said Reuters. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
