Buy JP Morgan Chase & Co
What is JPM?
JPMorgan Chase & Co. is one of the world's oldest and largest financial institutions.
With roughly $350 billion in market value as of December 2020, this financial holding company is viewed as a proxy for banking and financial services as well as the global economic picture more generally. The company has more than $3 trillion in total assets on its books, making it the world’s seventh-largest bank in terms of assets held. JPMorgan operates in four segments: Consumer & Community Banking; Corporate & Investment Bank; Commercial Banking; and Asset Management.
Earnings growth is a key characteristic. Prior to the pandemic roiled the economy, JPMorgan’s earnings per share had enjoyed double-digit gains for the previous eight quarters when EPS ranged between 18% and 23% growth. The first quarter of 2020 saw steep losses. However, the bank has seen a surge in trading revenue which has offset those losses, and which led to, in the third quarter of 2020, an earnings increase of 9%.

Some two dozen analysts have issued guidance on the price of JPM with the median forecast showing a return of 2% in the next 12 months, according to CNN Money.
