Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell on Wednesday:
Bank of America (BAC) – The bank reported a smaller-than-expected loss of one cent per share, though revenue was slightly below estimates. The bank's bottom line was affected by charges related to its recent settlement with the Justice Department.
PNC Financial (PNC) – PNC beat estimates by eight cents with third-quarter profit of $1.79 per share, with revenue also above consensus. That revenue number was below year ago levels, but PNC's results were aided by cost cuts.
KeyCorp (KEY) – The bank reported third quarter profit of 23 cents per share, missing estimates by three cents, and revenue also fell below Street forecasts even though KeyCorp's loan portfolio grew. Its results were impacted by a drop in its net interest margin.
BlackRock (BLK) – The asset management firm reported third-quarter profit of $5.21 per share, excluding certain items, beating estimates of $4.66. Revenue also came in above estimates, and assets under management grew by ten percent compared to a year earlier.
