Wells Fargo delivered a much-needed bit of good news for the banking sector Thursday, saying it expected to book a better-than-expected profit of approximately $3 billion in the most recent quarter.

The announcement not only sent Wells Fargo (WFC, Fortune 500) stock 32% higher, but boosted shares of many other big banks as investors bet that Wells’ peers may also post results that exceed Wall Street’s estimates. Bank of America (BAC, Fortune 500), which will report its results on April 20, gained 35%.

So what does that mean? They’re making 300 billion but Obama still has to come save them?
