Factoid of the Day Friday, February 22, 2019
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) announced that U.S. commercial banks and savings institutions insured by the FDIC reported aggregate net income totaling $59.1 billion in Q4'18, down from $62.0 billion in Q3'18, but up 133% year-over-year, according to its own release. The $25.3 billion reported in Q4'17 was low due to one-time income tax effects from the new tax law. Full-year 2018 net income was $236.7 billion, up 44.1% year-over-year. Community banks reported net income totaling $6.8 billion in Q4'18, matching the $6.8 billion posted in Q3'18, but up 65.1% year-over-year. The number of institutions on the FDIC's list of "problem banks" stood at 60 in Q4'18, down from 71 in Q3'18. The post-crisis high for the list was 888 in Q1'11.
