Regions Financial Corp. swung to a loss in the second quarter on surging loan-loss provisions as the Southeast regional bank continues to see its credit quality suffer.

Shares fell 5.94% premarket to $3.80 as the loss was wider than analysts expected. The stock through Monday is up by nearly three-quarters since it hit its lowest level in a quarter-century last February. Shares, though, were still down 49% this year.
