Forget wb. Both rf and usb reported this am. Earnings for rf were $.55 vs. projection of $.48. Ubs earnings were $.62, 1 cent better than projection.
Bbt earnings for the 1st qtr should be fine. Better managed bank than rf with significantly lower non-performing loans and better loan loss mitigation history. Rf is a good comparison for bbt. Suntrust earnings may stink because they were grossly underprovided 12/31/07.
