Wall Street High on Thursday

Commerce Bancshares reports better-than-expected earnings for its 2nd quarter

The U.S. stock market gained today in morning trading, with the Dow Jones up more than 170 points. Yesterday, Bloomberg reported that officials from China and the U.S. will have conversations at a high level.

Shares of Commerce Bancshares (NASDAQ:CBSH) gained on Thursday trading after the company posted second quarter earnings per share of $1.01 on revenue of $335.81 million, representing 12.6% year-over-year growth. The company managed to beat earnings estimations by 12 cents.

David W. Kemper, chairman and CEO, said, “Compared to the prior quarter, net interest income grew $18.1 million but included an equity dividend of $8.9 million this quarter, offset by a comparable securities loss.”

In the trimester, the net loan charge-offs totaled $10.0 million, compared to $10.8 million in the same quarter last year, due to the result of lower personal banking loan losses.
