TORONTO (Reuters) - Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CM.TO) posted a big loss for the second straight quarter on Thursday, after taking additional charges of C$2.5 billion for U.S. structured credit securities and other positions hurt by the credit crunch.

CIBC, the fourth-largest Canadian bank by market value, said it lost C$1.1 billion ($1.1 billion), or C$3.00 per share, in the second quarter ended April 30. That compared with a profit of C$807 million, or C$2.27 a share, in the year-earlier period.
