This article deals with the pressure facing U.S. banks as they prepare to report first-quarter results in 2010. There are expectations that more lenders will say that they have returned to profitability and that those facing financial problems will report smaller losses on bad home and commercial loans. Banks are also expected by observers to show key signs of progress on the credit front such as flat or declining loan chargeoffs, lower provisions and a slowdown in new past-due loans.
