De donde se puede extraer entre otros datos los siguientes:
JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) today reported second-quarter 2010 net income of $4.8 billion, compared with $2.7 billion in the second quarter of 2009. Earnings per share were $1.09, compared with $0.28 in the second quarter of 2009.
Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the quarter: “Our net income increased to $4.8 billion, including the benefit from a $1.5 billion reduction of loan loss reserves – which we do not believe represents normal ongoing earnings – partially offset by a charge of $550 million for the U.K. bonus tax.”
Continuing on the businesses, Dimon added: “Although we are gratified to see consumer-lending net charge-offs and delinquencies decline, they remain at extremely high levels and therefore returns in our consumer-lending businesses are still unacceptable. As a result, these businesses did not meet expectations nor generate satisfactory returns on capital for our shareholders. It is too early to say how much improvement we will see from here.
“We saw solid performance in our other businesses. In particular, our wholesale businesses experienced reduced net charge-offs that led to reductions in loan loss reserves, and are currently seeing credit costs which reflect the increasingly healthy condition of our wholesale clients.”
Commenting on the strength of the balance sheet, Dimon said: “We maintained very high liquidity, with a deposit-to-loan ratio of 127%, and generated additional capital, ending the quarter with a strong Tier 1 Common ratio of 9.6%. Total firmwide credit reserves fell to $36.7 billion, as loan balances remained flat and credit costs declined, resulting in a firmwide coverage ratio of 5.3% of total loans1. Our strong and growing capital base has enabled us to buy back over $500 million of stock to date, and we will continue to do so opportunistically.”
Dimon further remarked: “We continue to aggressively do all that we can reasonably and responsibly to contribute to the economic recovery. During the first half of the year, we loaned or raised capital for our clients of nearly $700 billion, and our small-business originations were up 37%.”
Looking ahead, Dimon concluded: “We recognize a number of positive aspects of the pending regulatory reform legislation, including systemic risk oversight and resolution authority. However, many challenges and uncertainties remain which may result in unintended consequences for our clients, the markets and our businesses. With a need for global regulatory coordination and hundreds of rules to be written, increased focus is critical in order to implement these reforms in a way that protects consumers and the competitiveness of the U.S. financial system, while ensuring the flow of safe and sound credit. As always, and regardless of uncertainties about the credit environment and pending regulation, we remain committed to the long-term growth of our franchise. We continue to invest in our infrastructure to enable us to deliver the quality products and services that our customers demand, and to provide good returns for our shareholders.”
