FDIC Quarterly Banking Report

Below is an excerpt from the Q4 2010 FDIC Quarterly Banking Report:

The fourth quarter 2010 FDIC Quarterly Banking Profile (QBP) is now available on line. FDIC-insured institutions reported an aggregate profit of $21.7 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010, a $23.5 billion improvement from the $1.8 billion net loss the industry reported in the fourth quarter of 2009. This is the sixth consecutive quarter that earnings registered a year-over-year increase. Almost two-thirds of all institutions (62 percent) reported improvements in their quarterly net income from a year ago. The average return on assets (ROA) rose to 0.65 percent, from negative 0.06 percent a year ago. Although community banks’ aggregate return on assets lags the ROA for larger institutions, as a group they are recovering, as most community banks reported higher earnings than a year ago.
