US Big Bank Earnings Report

14 July, 2017

Three of the US’s biggest financial institutions are slated to release their second quarter (the quarter ending on June 30th) earnings for 2017. JP Morgan Chase will announce their results on @JPMorgan and @Chase on Twitter, Citigroup and Wells Fargo will most likely release the data on their respective websites, but all information will also be available on the US Security and Exchange Commission’sВВ website.

Analyst are expecting “soft” earnings for this quarter, largely due to years of financial “fat-trimming” and the dissipation of the so-called “Trump Effect” which bolstered investors’ confidence initially in the tycoon-turned-president’s ability to reform the economy, put proved legislatively impotent within the first few months of its administration. ВВ Forecasts estimate Citigroup shares to float around $1.21 and earnings in the area of $17.4 billion, JP Morgan Chase at $1.59 and $25 billion of revenue and finally Wells Fargo at $1.01 and earnings at $22.16 billion. Wells Fargo fared the worst of the three institutions after weathering (i.e. settling) a $142 million class action suite regarding the creation of fake customer accounts.

Second quarter earnings for the institutions last year were:

  • CitigroupВВ - $1.24/share, $17.55 billion
  • JP Morgan ChaseВВ - $1.55/share, $25.21 billion
  • Wells FargoВВ - $1.01/share, $22.16 billion

At the moment, due to the expectation that earnings and shares for these three institutions will be lackluster, markets and investor sentiment is unlikely to fluctuate greatly but we will have to wait for the releases and see.ВВ
