13:33 EDTJPMEarnings Preview: Analysts mixed on JPMorgan into Q1 results
JPMorgan (JPM), a financial holding company, is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the open on Friday, April 11, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.40 on revenue of $24.53B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.28-$1.54 on revenue of $23.19B-$25.42B. LAST QUARTER: JPMorgan reported higher than expected Q4 earnings, excluding certain items, and slightly lower than expected revenue. The bank’s provision for credit losses tumbled $552M versus the same period a year earlier to $104M, but its mortgage application volumes sank 52% to $31.3B. The net income generated by JPMorgan’s Card, Merchant Services & Auto jumped 23%, year-over-year, and its net income from its mortgage banking unit surged 34%. Its real estate portfolios generated net income of $1.2B, up from $410M. The company’s mortgage production unit generated a $274M loss, and net revenue from its corporate and investment bank dropped to $6.02B from $7.6B in the year-ago period. The bank predicted that its net interest income and net interest margin would be relatively stable in the near-term. On March 26, the bank announced that the Fed had approved its plan to increase its dividend to 40c from 38c and repurchase $6.5B of its own stock. STREET RESEARCH: On April 9, RBC Capital cut its estimates for JPMorgan, but noted that JPMorgan has strong earnings power and a best-in-class management team, and kept a $67 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. More upbeat on JPMorgan was Macquarie, which upgraded the stock to Outperform from Market Perform in a note to investors on April 4. JPMorgan is one of the cheapest ways for investors to benefit from improving U.S. and European economies and increasing short-term interest rates, the firm contended. Additionally, JPMorgan’s asset management business should generate a higher share of the company’s core earnings going forward, Macquarie predicted. This change should be positive for the stock, as asset management companies tend to get high valuations, the firm reported. The firm raised its price target on the shares to $68 from $62. PRICE ACTION: JPMorgan’s stock is little changed this year, but down about 3% in trading this afternoon ahead of tomorrow's earnings report.
