NEW YORK (

TheStreet

)

-- JPMorgan Chase

(NYSE:

JPM

) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of B. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance, reasonable valuation levels, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 259.53% to $26,577.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year.
  • Compared to where it was trading one year ago, JPM is up 38.45% to its most recent closing price of 54.40. Looking ahead, although the push and pull of a bull or bear market could certainly alter the outcome, our view is that this stock's positive fundamentals give it good potential for further appreciation.
  • The gross profit margin for JPMORGAN CHASE & CO is currently very high, coming in at 92.77%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization.

JPMorgan Chase & Co., a financial holding company, provides various financial services worldwide. JPMorgan Chase has a market cap of $209.5 billion and is part of the financial sector and banking industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 13.00, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 18.00. Shares are up 26.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.
