JPMorgan: 'Whale' Loss Winner
Dimon said the company could "can get to 9% Basel III
JPMorgan's shares have now returned 11% year-to-date, following a 20% decline in 2011. Based on a 30-cent quarterly payout, the shares have a dividend yield of 3.33%.
The shares trade for seven times the consensus 2013 EPS estimate of $5.28. The consensus 2012 EPS estimate is $4.19.
Stifel Nicolaus analyst Christopher Mutascio rates JPMorgan a "Hold," and said on Friday that after backing out the one-time items during a quarter with "significant noise," he "could arrive at a core quarterly EPS run-rate in the $1.35 range."
The analyst said that "areas in which the company clearly beat our expectations were: 1) mortgage banking income came in at $2.27 billion versus our estimate of just $1.61 billion, and 2) operating expense were $14.97 billion versus our estimate of $15.55 billion," combining "for a $1 billion beat, or $0.17 per share, relative to our expectations."
Mutascio's areas of concern include "1) the company's net interest income came in at $11.15 billion, which is down from the 1Q12 level of $11.67 billion and lower than our $11.84 billion estimate - with the net interest margin falling to 2.47% from 2.61% in 1Q12, and 2) the company's estimated Basel III tier 1 common capital ratio was 7.9%, down from the originally reported 1Q12 level of 8.4% and the restated 1Q12 level of 8.2%."
