JPMorgan reported adjusted net income of $9.18 billion. Earnings per share of $1.20 handily beat estimates of $1.09. While Citigroup certainly isn't in any trouble, there does seem to be some stagnation.
Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) dropped and then recovered in Tuesday trading following its earnings announcement. The Charlotte-based banking giant beat earnings estimates, but missed on revenue. This, along with a warning about slowing net interest income, hit BAC stock before it recovered later in the day. * 5 Dividend Stocks Perfect for Retirees Source: Shutterstock However, the quick move to pre-report levels may show underlying confidence in BAC. With a low multiple and double-digit profit growth set to continue, Bank of America stock looks poised for a breakout. BAC Stock Beat on Earnings, Fell Short on RevenueFor the first quarter, BAC reported its 16th consecutive beat on earnings. In Q1, the company earned 70 cents per share, or $7.3 billion. This beat estimates by 5 cents per share and came in ahead of the year-ago level of 62 cents per share. Consumer banking led the way as net income from that division rose 25% to $3 billion. Net income in its Global Wealth and Investment Management division also rose by 14%.However, other divisions saw slower profit growth or, in the case of Global Banking, an outright decline. Also, revenues of $23 billion fell short of the first quarter revenue level of $23.07 billion last year. Analysts had expected $23.3 billion.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe disappointment did not end there. The company also acknowledged that net interest income would rise by only 3% this year. Net interest income increased by 6% in 2018. This news sent BAC stock falling by as much as 2.8% in morning trading. BAC Stock Recovered QuicklyHowever, the fact that the stock ended the day 0.13% higher shows underlying confidence in BAC. Since mid-January, the stock has mostly traded between $28 and $30 per share. The exception occurred in mid-March. BAC stock fell to as low as $26.67 per share when the Fed announced an intention to delay further rate increases for the year. Still, it recovered quickly to the previous range.Traders appear justified in keeping BAC stock at these levels. When looking at the overall picture, little reason exists to sell Bank of America stock. The current price-to-earnings (PE) ratio stands at around 11.5. At this price level, the PE falls to 9.3 on a forward basis. For this valuation, investors buy a company expected to increase profits by 9.5% this year and 10.8% in fiscal 2020.The improvements extend beyond BAC. JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Citigroup (NYSE:C) confirmed the strength of this sector in their recent earnings reports. Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) did not perform as well, but it continues to struggle with reputation issues. Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), which also offered mixed news in its report, depends more on investment banking. When Will BAC Stock Finally Rise?With BAC stock, the near-term questions involve when a breakout will occur and what will cause it? Since quarterly earnings did not offer a catalyst, predicting when becomes more difficult.If nothing else, rising profits and falling earnings multiples will eventually take BAC stock higher. Moreover, BAC will pay its investors to wait with dividends. BAC has increased its payout for five straight years now. This year's dividend of 60 cents per share yields about 2%. Hence, investors will receive a payout slightly above the current S&P 500 average of 1.85%. Also, if history serves as an indication, investors can expect the dividend to increase over time. Final Thoughts on BAC StockConditions remain in place for BAC stock to move higher. The question hinges on when? As predicted, earnings increased and beat estimates again. Also, despite disappointments in revenue and net interest income, the stock recovered quickly. Still, this leaves BAC stock rangebound and traders with no indication as to when it will break out. * 10 Best Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever Investors can buy now and earn a yield of about 2% on the dividend. Also, even if little else occurs, improving profits will force Bank of America stock to move higher at some point. However, until a catalyst appears, expect payouts and little else from BAC stock.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) reported its first-quarter results on Apr. 12. JPM stock gained almost 5% on the news. Source: Shutterstock InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsCitigroup (NYSE:C) announced mixed results before the markets opened on Monday. Its share price barely moved. As far as large bank stocks, JPM stock appears to be in a league of its own. Can any other bank stock touch it? * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm Let's consider a few different financial metrics to determine if Jamie Dimon's baby is the obvious choice among large bank stocks. What Is Large?Before we consider our options, it's essential that we come up with some definition of large.As I scan a list of bank ETFs, the Invesco KBW Bank ETF (NYSEARCA:KBWB) catches my attention because of its laser-like focus on 24 bank stocks. JPM stock is its number one holding, accounting for 8.56% of its value. KBWB tracks the performance of the KBW Nasdaq Bank Index, which in turn tracks the performance of the leading banks and thrifts that are publicly traded in the U.S. They are primarily sizable, national, money-center banks, with a few regional banks and thrift institutions thrown into the mix. The index uses a float-adjusted, market cap-weighting methodology. The stocks that are weighted lower generally have smaller market caps. Evaluating JPM's PerformanceThe easiest thing to do would be to compare JPMorgan's Q1 results to those of Citigroup.However, that wouldn't be any fun. So, instead, I'm going to compare JPM to my favorite U.S. bank, SVB Financial (NASDAQ:SIVB), where entrepreneurs and innovators go for their financial services needs, both business and personal. Unfortunately, SIVB doesn't report its first-quarter results until Apr. 25, so I'll use the banks' 2018 numbers to compare them. The NumbersFinancial Metric JPMorgan SVB Financial Net Interest Margin 2.51% 3.57% Return on Average Assets 1.24% 1.76% Efficiency Ratio 61.21% 45.50% Tier 1 Capital Ratio 13.7% 13.4% Return on Equity 13% 20.57 By looking at these five financial metrics, it's clear that SIVB stock is very attractive relative to JPM stock. However, there are a couple of caveats to these numbers.First, SVB Financial is much smaller than JPMorgan.In 2018, SIVB had $2.6 billion of revenue. That's about 2% of JPMorgan's total revenue. JPM had $2.6 trillion of total assets, compared to $55.2 billion for SIVB. The 0.52 percentage-point difference in the banks' return on average assets isn't a big deal, since JPM is so much bigger than SIVB. For example, if JPMorgan had SIVB's return on average assets in 2018, it would have generated $45.7 billion of net income, $13.3 billion more than it did. However, as it stands, JPMorgan's net income in 2018 of $32.5 billion was 59% of SVB Financial's entire asset base. I'm sure Jamie Dimon would love to have some of SIVB's superior numbers, but given JPM's size, that's not very realistic.The second caveat is that SIVB is geared toward commercial banking. In 2018, out of $27.5 billion of its average loans outstanding, 50.8% were worth $20 million or more. Consumer loans and mortgages accounted for just 10% of the bank's total loan portfolio. JPMorgan's total consumer-credit portfolio, including credit cards, was $1.2 trillion, or 46% of its total assets. It focuses much more on retail banking than SIVB. When economies turn south, that can work against JPM stock. But for now, with a relatively strong economy, JPM and JPM stock are sitting pretty. The Bottom Line on JPM StockIf you're interested in owning one of America's biggest and best banks, I don't think there's a better choice than JPMorgan stock.However, if you want to own a piece of one of America's best banks, period, SIVB is a desirable alternative, in my opinion.

Sponsors and their units should hold their stakes for at least 24 months, the Shanghai Stock Exchange said in a statement late Tuesday, an arrangement virtually unheard of in global markets.
