What to watch when JPMorgan (JPM) reports Q3 earnings?

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) is slated to report third quarter 2019 earnings results on Tuesday, October 15, before the market opens. The company is expected to report earnings of $2.45 per share. This compares to earnings of $2.34 per share reported a year earlier. Revenue is expected to grow 2.4% year-over-year to $28.4 billion.  

The banking industry is dealing with lower interest rates which are likely to pressurize net interest margins. More rate cuts are expected to take place this year, adding to the uncertainty. Investors should watch out for updates on credit conditions as well as loan growth prospects. The general economic trends and their impact on debt repayments are also an important area to keep an eye on.

JPMorgan Chase and Co Q2 2019 earnings

Last quarter, JPMorgan saw strength in its consumer banking business while the investment banking and commercial banking divisions saw weakness. Wealth management remained relatively flat due to lower investment valuation gains. In the third quarter, net interest income might be impacted by the drop in interest rates.

Despite the uncertain environment, JPMorgan’s quarterly results are likely to remain steady as the company continues to grow its market share and expand its footprint. The bank is also expected to benefit from its investments in building its technological and digital banking capabilities.
