Strong loan growth drives NII for US Bancorp in Q2

US Bancorp (NYSE: USB) reported second-quarter earnings results that surpassed Wall Street estimates, despite headwinds associated with a low-interest-rate environment.

Total net revenue of $5.82 billion was up 3.2% compared to the same period last year, helped by strong growth in payments services, wealth management, and commercial products. The top line surpassed analysts’ estimates of $5.73 billion.

Net income grew 7% to 1.09 per share, beating the Street consensus by 2 cents. The increase in net income was driven revenue growth during the quarter, but was partially offset by noninterest expense growth of 2.2%.

Strong loan and deposit growth during the quarter, which benefited from heightened consumer confidence, drove Net Interest Income (NII) in Q2. NII improved 3.4% to $3.33 billion, as average total loans grew 3.8% year-over-year.
