It paid $9.2 billion in legal expenses in the last quarter but is the worst behind for JPMorgan's shareholders?
JPMorgan Chase didn't lose money during the financial crisis a half-decade ago. But, the banking giant just reported its first loss since Jamie Dimon took the helm in 2004. In the most recent quarter, the company reported $9.2 billion in legal expenses as it deal with the US government on its "London Whale" and mortgage issues.
The added legal caused JPMorgan to report a loss of $380 million. Without such extraordinary items, the bank actually earned $1.42 per share, up from $1.40 the previous year. That's significantly more than the $1.20 per share analysts were expecting.
