J.P. Morgan Chase is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings earlier than the opening bell Tuesday.
Here’s what Wall Street expects:
Earnings: $2.35 a share, a 19% improve from a 12 months earlier, in keeping with Refinitiv.
Revenue: $27.96 billion, a 4.3% improve from a 12 months earlier.
Net Interest Margin: 2.37%, in keeping with FactSet
Trading Revenue: Fixed revenue $2.61 billion, Equities $1.37 billion
J.P. Morgan, the largest U.S. financial institution by property, is the primary main lender to report earnings. The firm is carefully watched by traders searching for clues into how the business’s Wall Street and Main Street companies fared within the quarter.
J.P. Morgan CFO Jennifer Piepszak stated buying and selling income was “meaningfully” larger within the fourth quarter versus a 12 months in the past. The rebound comes from the business’s’ fixed-income buying and selling operations, projected to rise 25% on common, versus a 3% bump in inventory buying and selling income, KBW analyst Brian Kleinhanzl wrote final month.
Bank shares completed 2019 on a tear, outpacing the broader inventory indices within the fourth quarter as traders rushed into an under-owned sector. J.P. Morgan, specifically, surged final 12 months, climbing about 40%, a pointy transfer larger than prompted some analysts to chop their suggestions primarily based on valuation.

The Federal Reserve lower its benchmark charges for the third time in October, and that pressures internet curiosity revenue, or the income that banks garner from amassing mortgage funds, minus the curiosity it pays to depositors.
