US Bancorp Q2 net income up, loan losses ease
CHARLOTTE, North Carolina
CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Reuters) - US Bancorp's (USB.N) second-quarter net income rose by 57 percent as the Midwestern regional bank set aside less money for bad loans and earned more in interest income.
The Minneapolis-based US Bancorp reported net income of $1.2 billion, or 60 cents per share, on Wednesday, up from $766 million, or 45 cents per share, a year ago.
Unlike many of its regional bank peers, US Bancorp has avoided serious real estate-related loan problems, and has emerged as one of the strongest U.S. lenders.
