On Tuesday, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. reported the U.S. banking industry posted earnings of $36.0 billion in the third quarter of 2013, which was 3.9 percent lower when compared to the third quarter of 2012. "While industry revenue was lower, due in large part to a reduction in mortgage originations caused by higher interest rates, today's report shows further progress in the gradual recovery of the banking industry," FDIC Chairman Martin Gruenberg told reporters at a recent news conference. Additionally, the FDIC reported that the number of banks on its problem watch list had decreased by 38 when compared to the previous quarter. Here is how some banking stocks reacted Tuesday:
