(By Balachander) U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) posted a 5 percent increase in earnings for the fourth quarter, helped by growth in net interest income and a lower provision for credit losses. Revenue was flat as noninterest income declined.

Net income attributable to U.S. Bancorp was $1.42 billion or $0.72 per share for the quarter, compared with $1.35 billion or $0.69 per share in the year-ago period. In the third quarter, USB earned 74 cents a share.

Net revenue was flat at $5.1 billion with the prior year period as a 4 percent rise in net interest income was offset by a 4.2 percent drop in noninterest income. On a sequential basis, revenue fell 1.3 percent.

The provision for credit losses declined 11 percent and 9 percent from the year-ago period and the prior quarter, respectively.

Average total loans grew 6.4 percent and 1.5 percent from the comparable quarter of last year and linked quarter.
