With the fifth anniversary of Dodd-Frank approaching on Tuesday, Wall Street has shown that it can still rake in profits even in the tougher regulatory environment.

The country’s biggest banks have announced their quarterly earnings, and most — but not all — beat analyst expectations.

Nevertheless, all six firms reported quarterly revenues of at least $US9 billion and net incomes of at least $US1 billion.

A big theme this quarter was legal costs, with firms like JPMorgan and Citigroup benefiting from having put their mortgage-related litigation behind them. Meanwhile, litigation costs took a large toll on Goldman Sachs this quarter.

Scroll through to see how much each bank made in Q2.

J.P. Morgan

Announced on: July 14

Revenue: $US24.53 billion

Net Income: $US6.29 billion

EPS: $US1.54

Comment: JPMorgan topped both EPS estimates of $US1.45 a share and revenue estimates of $US24.49 billion. The bank drove costs down 6% to make up for weak trading revenue. The firm is also benefiting from lower legal costs, after paying more than $US25 billion in fines following the financial crisis.

Wells Fargo

Announced on: July 14

Revenue: $US21.32 billion

Net Income: $US5.72 billion

EPS: $US1.03

Comment: Wells Fargo's earnings per share for Q2 matched analysts expectations. However, the firm saw lower mortgage banking revenue due to higher interest rates.

'Compared with a year ago, we grew loans, deposits and capital, and our balance sheet remained strong,' Chairman and CEO John Stumpf said in a press release. 'Credit results also improved and we continued to adhere to our disciplined approach to risk management.'

Bank of America

Announced on: July 15

Revenue: $US22.35 billion

Net Income: $US5.32 billion

EPS: $US0.45

Comment: BAML's revenue and EPS came in above estimates of $US21.38 billion and $US0.36, respectively.

'Solid core loan growth, higher mortgage originations and the lowest expenses since 2008 contributed to our strongest earnings in several years, as we continued to build broader and deeper relationships with our customers and clients,' CEO Brian Moynihan said
in a press release.


Announced on: July 16

Revenue: $US19.5 billion

Net Income: $US4.8 billion

EPS: $US1.51

Comment: Citi beat both the EPS estimate of $US1.35 and revenue estimate of $US19 billion. The firm's revenue gains in retail banking were offset by losses on Citi-branded cards. Citi seems to have moved past its legal battles after the firm paid large settlements last year that left Q2 earnings at just $US0.03 a share.

Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs Chairman and CEO Lloyd Blankfein

Announced on: July 16

Revenue: $US9.07 billion

Net Income: $US1.05 billion

EPS: $US1.98

Comment: Goldman's revenue gains in investment banking and equities trading were offset by large legal costs. Excluding these costs the firm saw an EPS of $US4.75, which topped expectations of $US3.97. Goldman paid $US1.45 in litigation costs in Q2 and the company still has mortgage-related lawsuits to settle.

Morgan Stanley

Announced on: July 20

Revenue: $US9.7 billion

Net Income: $US1.81 billion

EPS: $US0.85

Comment: Morgan Stanley beat expectations for an EPS of $US0.74. The firm's wealth-management division -- which CEO James Gorman has notably relied on since the crisis -- had revenues of $US3.9, up from $US3.7 billion a year ago. According to the Wall Street Journal, the firm's total trading revenue of $US3.5 billion is up 32% from last year.
