12:53 EDTJPMEarnings Preview: Analysts upbeat on JP Morgan into results
JP Morgan (JPM) is expected to report Q1 earnings before the market open on Friday, April 13, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. The consensus estimate is $1.18 for EPS and $24.68B for revenue, according to First Call. In a note to investors on April 10, FBR Capital said that it expects JP Morgan to report strong Q1 results. The firm, which raised its target on JP Morgan to $50 from $46, expects the bank's results to be boosted by its exposure to mortgage banking and capital markets. Moreover, the firm expects all of the large banks to benefit from either an improving political environment or an economic rebound, and it maintains an Outperform rating on JP Morgan. Also upbeat on JP Morgan was Raymond James, which raised its target on the stock to $52 from $47 on March 26. The firm raised its Q1 EPS estimate for the bank by 14c to $1.15, citing an improved outlook for JP Morgan's investment bank and mortgage banking operations. Raymond James also expects the bank's Q1 results to get a boost from continued commercial loan growth and credit quality improvements and maintained its Strong Buy rating. Additionally, Citigroup and Bank of America Merrill Lynch raised their price targets on JP Morgan shares in late March. In an annual letter to shareholders released on April 4, JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon said the bank's losses from its mortgage operations "are increasingly less severe." These losses, which are primarily responsible for the difference between what the bank is earnings and its profit potential of $23B-$24B, should last "a while longer," wrote Dimon, adding that the bank expects its earnings to increase over time.
