Stock market news
We are again in the stock earnings period, and stock earnings calendar are set to add volatility in the stock market. Notable earnings today are:
“At least one beneficiary has emerged from Boeing’s ongoing mess with its flagship plane. Airline giant Delta (DAL) posted fourth quarter profits that beat Wall Street’s estimates — citing an influx of customers that fled rivals because of canceled flights stemming from the 737 MAX’s grounding. The stock surged over 4% in pre-market action from Monday’s close.”
“JPMorgan shares rise after big Q4 earnings beat
Shares of JPMorgan Chase (JPM) jumped more than 1.5% in early trading after the largest U.S. bank by assets reported much stronger than expected fourth-quarter results.
Here were the key figures versus the expectations, according to analysts polled by Bloomberg.
Revenue (adjusted): $29.2 billion vs $27.9 billion expected.
Earnings per share (adjusted): $2.57 vs $2.36 per share expected
CEO Jamie Dimon highlighted a more constructive geopolitical and macroeconomic backdrop as helping buoy the bank to record revenue and net income in the fourth quarter.”
