Stocks to Watch: JPMorgan, Ruby Tuesday, Safeway

NEW YORK -- JPMorgan Chase's (JPM - Get Report) 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 - Get Report), 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.

The company said it sees earnings excluding items of 24 cents to 34 cents a share for its fiscal year ending in May with same-restaurant sales projected between flat and up 2%.

Analysts are calling for earnings of 28 cents a share.


Safeway (SWY - Get Report) 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.
