While credit losses continue to improve in the U.S. banking sector, this FSB plan comes at a time when large banks are seeing their pre-tax pre-provision profit shrink. Much of the positive news in Q4 earnings was propped up by large releases of loan-loss provisions. While the news appears positive, some analysts believe Wells Fargo & Company's PTPP fell 12% year over year. Decreasing net-interest margins and regulatory pressures on investment income have hurt overall revenues for the sector. Furthermore, some companies are seeing their transaction interchange fee revenue shrink as the federal government installs limits.
