US Bancorp (NYSE: USB) reported earnings that were in line with market expectations but missed the mark on revenues for the first quarter of 2019.

US Bancorp reports Q1 2019 earnings results


Net income attributable to US Bancorp common shareholders grew 1% to $1.61 billion compared to the year-ago period, helped by higher revenue. Diluted EPS rose 4.2% year-over-year to $1.00.

Net interest income on a taxable-equivalent basis was $3.28 billion, up 2.8% versus last year, mainly due to the impact of rising interest rates, earning assets growth and higher yields on securities. Net interest margin was 3.16% compared to 3.13% last year.

Total non-interest income rose 0.8% to $2.29 billion, helped by growth in corporate payment products and merchant processing services revenue. Non-interest expense rose 1%, mainly due to increased compensation expenses as well as higher technology and communication expenses.

Total net charge-offs increased 7.6% year-over-year to $367 million, mainly due to higher total commercial loan and credit card net charge-offs. Non-performing assets were $1 billion at March 31, 2019 compared to $1.2 billion in the same period last year, with the decrease driven by declines in non-performing residential mortgages, total commercial loans and other real estate owned.

Average total loans increased 2.4% year-over-year to $286.1 billion while average total deposits rose 0.2% to $335.3 billion.

US Bancorp’s shares have climbed over 11% thus far this year.
