The beginning of the year did not look promising with charge offs at 10 percent compared to 3.8 percent pre recession. However, the second quarter saw charge offs and delinquencies dropping as borrowers seem to be successfully repaying debt and becoming more financially cautious. With customers borrowing less and paying down more, interest revenues are dropping. Because of this, some lenders are increasing focus on charge and pay-in-full services, which provide fee based revenue.

Despite continued high unemployment and financial woes, Americans seem to be in agreement that something worth spending on, and borrowing for, is education. Earning a degree can double the chances of employment, which in the current environment is a huge incentive. Despite rising costs of education, families are digging deep to pay for college.

On the earnings observation board, companies to have impressed Wall Street in this quarter have been American Express Company and AmeriCredit Corp. amongst a select few.
