JPMorgan beat revenue and earnings estimates for Q4 2019

Net income rose 21% to $8.5 billion while EPS grew 30% to $2.57 from last year.

Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO, said, “While we face a continued high level of complex geopolitical issues, global growth stabilized, albeit at a lower level, and resolution of some trade issues helped support client and market activity towards the end of the year. The U.S. consumer continues to be in a strong position and we see the benefits of this across our consumer businesses.”

Net interest income dropped 2% to $14.3 billion due to lower rates. Non-interest revenue jumped 21% to $14.9 billion, mainly driven by higher revenue in Fixed Income and Equity Markets, Asset & Wealth Management, Home Lending, and Auto. Non-interest expense rose 4% to $16.3 billion, due to higher volume- and revenue-related expense.

In Consumer & Community Banking, net revenues grew 3% year-over-year to $14 billion. Corporate & Investment Bank revenues increased 31% to $9.5 billion. In Commercial Banking, revenues fell 3% to $2.2 billion due to lower net interest income and lower deposit margin. Asset & Wealth Management revenues were $3.7 billion, up 8%, driven by higher investment valuations and average market levels, as well as by growth in loans and deposits.
