The San Francisco-based lender continued to notch better results due to improving credit quality. Credit losses were $825 million in the January-March quarter, compared with $1.4 billion a year ago. The improvement comes as more consumers pay bills on time and the bank's stash of nonperforming assets diminishes.

The results translated into $1.05 per share, better than the 97 cents forecast by Wall Street analysts. Revenues slipped from $21.26 billion to $20.63 billion.
