Stocks to Watch: JPMorgan, Ruby Tuesday, Safeway

NEW YORK -- JPMorgan Chase's (JPM) chief financial officer, Douglas Braunstein, is expected to step down over the next two quarters and is likely to move into a different job at the bank, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people close to the company.

Braunstein has been finance chief at JPMorgan, the largest U.S. bank by assets, since 2010.

Braunstein's status was diminished as part of an executive shake-up in July, the Journal noted.

Ruby Tuesday (RT), the restaurant operator, reported an in-line profit for its fiscal first quarter on Wednesday but gave an outlook that hints at some downside to Wall Street expectations for the full year.

Analysts are calling for earnings of 28 cents a share.


Safeway (SWY) is expected by analysts Thursday to post a third quarter profit of 42 cents a share in the September-ended period on revenue of $10.24 billion.
