Wisconsin banks saw their profits jump by ten-and-a-half-percent from January through September, compared to the same time last year. The F-D-I-C says the 212 banks based in the Badger State had a combined net income of 819-million dollars in the first three fourths of the year — up from 806-million during the same period in 2016. Banks gave out five-percent more loans and leases — and only nine-tenths-of-one-percent of their loans were delinquent, down from one-point-one-percent at the same time last year. Deposits also rose by one-point-seven-percent, to more than 87-billion dollars statewide.
