Let’s start off with JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM).

  • Earnings per share came in at $3.79.
  • That beats out analysts’ estimates of $2.62 per share for the period.
  • Revenue for the quarter sitting at $29.2 billion.
  • This is better than Wall Street’s estimate of $28.7 billion.
  • Net income of $12.14 billion is up 42% year-over-year from $8.52 billion.

Now, let’s take a look at what Q4 brought for Citigroup (NYSE:C).

  • The company reported EPS of $2.08.
  • That’s above analysts’ estimates of $1.34 per share.
  • Its revenue reached $16.5 billion.
  • This has it missing Wall Street’s estimate of $16.71 billion for the quarter.
  • Its net income of $4.63 billion is down 7% from $4.98 billion in the same period of the year prior.

Finally, this is what Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) reported in its fourth quarter of 2020.

  • EPS for the quarter comes in at 64 cents.
  • That’s better than analysts’ EPS estimate of 60 cents.
  • Revenue in the most recent quarter is $17.93 billion.
  • That’s a miss next to Wall Street’s revenue estimate of $18.13 billion.
  • Net income of $2.99 billion is up 4% YoY from $2.87 billion.

While JPMorgan Chase did well today, it looks like the mixed results from Citigroup and Wells Fargo are likely dragging it down. As a result, each of these bank stocks is seeing their shares dip lower today.

JPM stock was down 2.3%, C stock was down 5.1% and WFC stock was down 7.5% as of Friday morning.
