The fourth-largest U.S. lender reported net income of $5.12 billion, or $1.17 per share, for the quarter ended Sept. 30, compared with $3.22 billion, or 70 cents per share, a year earlier.

Analysts on average had expected a profit of 99 cents per share, according to the IBES estimate from Refinitiv.
