Here comes JPMorgan ...

JPMorgan Chase is set to announce third-quarter earnings Thursday at 6:45 a.m.

Wall Street estimates the firm will announce earnings of $US1.645 per share on a GAAP basis, down from $US1.83 the previous quarter.

Here’s what else analysts are expecting:

  • Revenues of $US25.6 billion, down slightly from $US25.76 billion in the second quarter.
  • Net income of $US5.9 billion on a GAAP basis, up from $US6.55 billion in the second quarter.
  • A hit to trading: Jamie Dimon said in September that trading revenues could drop 20%.

JPMorgan is kicking off the earnings cycle for US banks, which have for weeks been preparing investors for a blow to trading results.

Analysts are also expecting total loan growth to have stalled amid economic and political uncertainty.
