NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- It's pretty rare that large cap bank earnings differ much from what analysts expect. That's because by the time banks actually get around to reporting earnings, analysts have revised their estimates so many times nobody remembers how far off they were in the first place.
However, a report released Wednesday by Deutsche Bank large cap bank analyst Matt O'Connor shows the banks that saw the biggest earnings per share revisions. Here are the five that have seen the biggest change, in terms of percentage, from what analysts had been expecting three months ago for fourth quarter earnings. O'Connor's data comes from Factset.
(PACW - Get Report) is expected to earn 40 cents per share in the fourth quarter, or 19% more than had been the analyst consensus three months earlier.
(C - Get Report) is expected to earn 82 cents per share in the fourth quarter--20% less than analysts had been looking for three months ago.
(ZION - Get Report)
is expected to earn 33 cents per share in the fourth quarter--21% most than analysts has expected three months earlier.
(JPM - Get Report)
is now expected to earn 98 cents per share--21% less than analysts predicted three months ago.
Bank of America
(BAC - Get Report)
is expected to earn 17 cents a share in the fourth quarter. That's 31% less than analysts had been looking for three months ago--the biggest change among large cap banks.
