13:25 EDTBACEarnings Preview: Bank of America to report after mixed competitors' results
Bank of America (BAC), one of the largest banks in the U.S., is expected to report fourth quarter earnings before the open on Thursday, January 15, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 32c on revenue of $20.94B. The consensus range is 30c-39c for EPS on revenue of $20.39B-$21.48B, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Bank of America reported stronger than expected third quarter results, as it said its customer and client activity was "solid." Its net chargeoffs declined across most major portfolios versus the same period a year earlier, and its tangible book value increased 4% over the same period in 2013 to $14.13 per share. COMPETITORS' RESULTS: Wells Fargo (WFC) reported in-line fourth quarter profit and slightly higher than expected fourth quarter revenue. The bank said that its credit quality continued to improve last quarter. The bank's commercial and consumer loans, as well as its deposits also increased, it stated. However, its home lending originations fell to $44B from $48B in Q3. Also, JPMorgan (JPM) reported weaker than expected results, and noted that legal expenses lowered its EPS by 26c. Notably the results for JPMorgan's Corporate and Investment Bank sank significantly last quarter, compared with the previous quarter. The unit's net revenue fell to $7.4B from $9.1B, while its net income dropped to $972M from $1.7B. STREET RESEARCH: Large banks were hurt by trading volatility last quarter, research firm MKM Partners wrote last month. "Trading and investment banking are key quarterly swing factors" for Bank of America, the firm stated. MKM cut its Q4 EPS estimate for the bank by 9% to 32c. On the other hand, Barron's on December 27 named Bank of America as one of its ten favorite stocks for 2015. The bank had to absorb "massive legal charges" last year, but these charges should quickly decline in 2015, the magazine forecast. Bank of America trades at 12 times the consensus 2015 EPS estimate of $1.48, and its EPS is expected to reach about $2 by 2017, Barron's stated. Additionally, the bank will benefit if interest rates rise, Barron's believes. PRICE ACTION: Bank of America's stock has fallen 7% over the last month, and 5% over the last year.
