Tesla, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan, Citigroup - Friday's Premarket Movers

Stocks moving in premarket trading Friday include JPMorgan, Tesla, Wells Fargo and Citigroup.

Stock futures fell Friday as President-elect Joe Biden unveiled a $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief package and after big U.S. banks kicked off the fourth-quarter earnings season.

Here are some of the top movers during premarket trading on Friday.

1. JPMorgan Chase JPM | Down 1.71%

Shares of JPMorgan Chase  (JPM) - Get JP Morgan Chase & Co. Report fell in premarket trading even after fourth-quarter earnings exceeded analysts' expectations. 

JPMorgan reported earnings of $3.79 a share on revenue of $30.2 billion, compared to analysts estimates of earnings of $2.62 a share on revenue of $28.7 billion.

Investment banking revenue rose 37% to $2.5 billion, driven by a 34% increase in investment banking fees, reflecting higher fees across products, the company said.

2. Tesla TSLA | Up 1.28%

Shares of Tesla  (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc. Report were rising early Friday after Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives lifted his one-year price target on the electric vehicle maker to $950 from $751 to reflect growing global demand for electric vehicles, particularly in China.

“The hearts and lungs of the Tesla bull thesis is centered around China as we have seen consumer demand skyrocket into 2021 not just for Model 3s, but for impressive domestic competitors such as NIO  (NIO) - Get NIO Inc. American depositary shares each representing one Class A 蔚来汽车 Report, XPeng  (XPEV) - Get Altitude Acquisition Corp. Unit Report, Li Auto  (LI) - Get Li Auto Inc. Report and others,” Ives said in a research note.

“As such, we have significantly raised our forecasts with our expectations that Tesla now exceeds the 1 million delivery threshold in 2022 and could start to approach 5 million deliveries annually by the end of the decade if global EV demand continues at this pace."
