Regions Financial Corporation (NYSE: RF) reported second quarter 2019 earnings that were in line with estimates but revenues fell short of expectations. The stock was up 1.7% in premarket hours on Friday.  

Total revenue of $1.43 billion remained relatively unchanged from last year and missed the consensus estimate of $1.48 billion.

Net interest income and other financing income increased 2%, helped by higher loan and securities yields and consumer loans balances.

Non-interest expense fell by 5% on a reported basis and 2% on an adjusted basis.

Average loans and leases rose 5% on a reported basis and 6% on an adjusted basis. Total average deposit balances decreased less than 1% from the year-ago period as reductions in low-cost deposits were partially offset by growth in time and corporate treasury deposits.
