Banks report higher earnings By The New York Times NEW YORK — Continuing a winning streak begun early last year, most of the nation's major banks reported higher earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 1985. But, in a widening debate, there was considerable disagreement over the "quality" of those earnings and the prospect of maintaining them. Of the nation's 15 banks with the greatest assets, 11 reported gains in per-share income. They achieved this, moreover, at a time when many were making significant provisions for loan losses and when their non- interest expenses — outlays for such things as salaries and real estate — were soaring. While all of this capped a year in which most banks' stocks and earnings rose steadily, some Wall Street analysts voiced skepticism. They said the results were often artificially inflated by extraordinary items, such as the sale of real estate or a change in the method of funding pension obligations.
