Earnings preview: JPMorgan will brave global headwinds in Q4

JPMorgan saw revenue declines across all its segments except for Consumer & Community Banking. In the Consumer & Community Banking segment, revenues benefited from higher net interest income on higher deposit and card margins and balance growth. Revenues in the Asset & Wealth Management segment were negatively impacted by lower market levels.

Banking stocks have faced pressures from a slowing economy, market volatility and the trade war. On Monday, JPMorgan’s rival Citigroup (C) reported fourth quarter results, beating earnings estimates but missing on revenues.
