Stocks of KeyCorp Inc., Comerica Inc., and Zions Bancorp all fell on Thursday morning after they reported lower-than-expected deposits and quarterly results. Regional banks suffered collateral damage as a result of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.

Truist Financial Corp. TFC, +2.78% reported results that were below estimates. Fifth Third Bancorp FITB,+3.13% was also slightly behind projected earnings and revenues.

First Republic Bank , FRC, +12.40%, fell 2.6%, after a big gain in the previous session. Its first-quarter results are due on Monday.

Comerica , a Dallas-based bank, CMA, +5.49%, fell 2.4% Thursday premarket after it announced that its net income for the first quarter rose from $189 to $324, or $2.39 per share.

However, the numbers were lower than the fourth quarter when the bank made $350 million or $2.58 per share.

Comerica didn’t provide a number for revenue but stated that it was down 2,9% from the previous quarter.

The bank reported revenue of $1.0 billion for the fourth quarter and expected revenue of $990 millions for the first.

The bank stated that since March 9, deposits have fallen by $3.7 billion. The stock of Silicon Valley Bank dropped more than 60% on March 9, after disclosures caused a run. The California regulator shut down the bank a day later.

The failure of that bank led to a massive flight of deposits from regional banks into larger ones.

Comerica reported that uninsured deposit decreased by $10 billion to $35 billion or 54% of the total deposits for the quarter. In order to create a buffer, the bank added $13.8 Billion in liquidity during the quarter.

Net interest income increased to $708 millions in the third quarter, up from $456million a year earlier. The company set aside $30m as a provision to cover loan losses after cutting the provisions by $11m a year earlier.

The S&P 500 is up 8%, but the stock has dropped 30%.
