During the fourth quarter of 2017, JPMorgan Chase & Co. reported earnings per share of $1.76. This matches the company’s earnings per share reported in the same period of the year prior. It also beat out Wall Street’s earnings per share estimate of $1.69 for the quarter.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. reported net income of $4.23 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017. The financial company’s net income from the fourth quarter of 2016 was $6.73 billion. JPM notes that this drop is due to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act during its fourth quarter. Without it, net income would have only been down 1%.
