JPMorgan Chase & Co. Message Board

    When was the last time JPM split?

    I am curious if JPM last split in 1997 or 1996? And if anyone want to speculate for the future...
    Thanks,
    Bogwong

    • Hi guys, ilikestock is back (I periodically read this board for old times sake). Anyways, no...JPM did not split in 1996 or 1997. The last split was in 1987 (yup, that's right - more than 10 years ago).
      1987 - split 2:1 at ~$90>$45
      1985 - split 2:1 at ~$80>$40

    • I think the last time JPM split, was actually a reverse split...not sure because I was into intel, microsoft, and ibm, back then. I'm in Dow Components because they're less risky than tech stocks...my day has come and gone...

      But I'll say this, my lil' bro said the next floppy might be Iomega or some other companies' zip drive, syquest...He just bought 1000 shares of Iomega...Has strong holding in Yhoo and seek...If this is anything, he sold his entire stake in AOL in favor of some cable internet company or companies...don't talk to the little guy out there often...makes me proud

      Oh, did you mean JPM's future...haven't followed it...I just like the conversation on this board now. I've even closed my ears to financials, unless you bring up CBH.

      You'll have to scan back a few posts...

      You know, the public sentiment, what you see on the evening news, is that the G-7 countries, those countries with a strong economy...Italy, Germany, USA, Japan, Canada...there's three more...just had a meeting. They attacked Japan, but said that they wouldn't help strengthen the yen.

      Keep in mind that JPM does a lot more business than just the typical Money Center stuff...JP Morgan, since 1890's? Something
      like that, over 100 years old, so this company has made friends. But don't forget the risks, barring a Latin American melt down,
      since JPM placed a major stake in a bank there, Latin American countries are in the midst of de-regulating their banks, JPM should
      be okay and the worst of the bad news may be over. Keep in mind, Japan is still in a recession, Juharto, whatever the
      indonesian's name is, still won't comply, Korea, Thailand, are going to follow the rest of Asia and the Thai, Bhat is still licking its
      wounds...JPM still has 4 Billion dollars of loans there.

      Pretty clear to me...

      But no guarantees, we'll see how the large shareholders feel once merger news dies down. JPM has a good book value, trades decent...has a slightly better than hold, moderate buy recommendation from my buddies...I don't go to Yahoo for this one, I make my own calls

      If I looked at JPM right now, and was not in the stock, I'd feel good about letting the earnings season go by and checking
      in with this stock again in May. Put it on your screen and definitely pick it up if it hits 120's this month, that's how
      volatile this earnings quarter is going to be. If JPM is back at 120, like I said before, I'm a definite buy. What this would mean,
      JPM at 120, is that this Dow Dog wouldn't have done a thing since last summer...phew...given JPM's recent earnings
      announcement...I'd like JPM at 120.

      But don't bet on it, we'll see in two weeks, no one can predict this weather...tornadoes...

      • Hi Yankee...how's it going? Took a look at CBH and like what I see...charts remind me of ntrs - remember we've had this conversation before. Anyways, don't have any $ on sidelines right now, but always like to keep an eye out. I recall that you said you preferred CBH and now I'm wondering why. I don't know how much you know about ntrs or how its business fundamentals compare with CBH, but any insights would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
