Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates JPMorgan Chase as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, increase in net income, solid stock price performance, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • JPMORGAN CHASE & CO has improved earnings per share by 5.5% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, JPMORGAN CHASE & CO increased its bottom line by earning $5.29 versus $4.32 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($5.86 versus $5.29).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Commercial Banks industry average. The net income increased by 5.2% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $5,980.00 million to $6,290.00 million.
  • After a year of stock price fluctuations, the net result is that JPM's price has not changed very much. Although its weak earnings growth may have played a role in this flat result, don't lose sight of the fact that the performance of the overall market, as measured by the S&P 500 Index, was essentially similar. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 495.69% to $17,296.00 million when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow of 495.69%, JPMORGAN CHASE & CO is still growing at a significantly lower rate than the industry average of 2804.12%.
  • The gross profit margin for JPMORGAN CHASE & CO is currently very high, coming in at 89.22%. Regardless of JPM's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, JPM's net profit margin of 24.53% compares favorably to the industry average.
