MCLEAN, Va. – Capital One Financial Corp. says its fourth-quarter profit rose 2 per cent, even as income earned from loans declined.

McLean, Va.-based Capital One said Thursday that net income after paying preferred dividends was $842 million, or $1.45 per share, for the three months ended Dec. 31. That compares with net income of $825 million, or $1.41 per share, a year earlier. Revenue slipped 1 per cent, to $5.54 billion from $5.62 billion.

Analysts polled by FactSet, on average, expected earnings of $1.54 per share on $5.46 billion in revenue.

The lender says loans fell in its U.S. credit card and home loan divisions, while auto loans increased.

Capital One shares are off 2 per cent to $74.90 in extended trading.
