Like BAC stock, Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB) suffered a steep pullback in April as a massive drop off in mortgage origination volumes and reduced ability to tap into loan loss reserves to pad quarterly earnings sent investors fleeing.

FITB announced weaker-than-expected Q1 earnings on April 17, driven by a drop in net interest margin and a -13% year-over-year decline in mortgage banking revenue. FITB stock is only down 3% so far this year, but has fallen more than 10% since early April.
