(Changes day to Wednesday from Tuesday)
Oct 16 Bank of America Corp reported a
third-quarter profit of $2.22 billion attributable to common
stockholders, compared with a loss a year earlier, as provisions
for credit losses fell.
The second-largest bank said on Wednesday it earned 20 cents
per share in the three months to Sept. 30.
In the year-earlier quarter, the bank recorded a net loss of
$33 million attributable to shareholders due to accounting
adjustments, litigation expenses and tax charges.
