On a roll

The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - STOCKS -

Wall Street pre­dicts that Bank of Amer­ica’s lat­est quar­terly re­sults im­proved from a year ear­lier. The con­sumer bank­ing giant, due to re­port third-quar­ter earn­ings to­day, has ben­e­fited from ris­ing in­ter­est rates. The Fed­eral Re­serve raised rates three times since De­cem­ber, which has al­lowed banks like BofA to charge bor­row­ers more when they take out loans. The con­sumer bank­ing giant’s prof­its jumped 10 per­cent in the sec­ond quar­ter.
