Regions Financial Corp. also recently reported its quarterly results. The company posted a net loss of $602 million for the quarter. However, this was primarily driven by a $731 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge attributed to its recently sold investment arm Morgan Keegan. The sale of Morgan Keegan to Raymond James Financial is expected to close in the first quarter of 2012 and raise $1.18 billion for Regions. Following this move the company seems intent on concentrating on its core banking business which has been seeing improvements. Without this quarter's one-time charges, Regions Financial earnings from continuing operations would have come to $0.09 per share.
