JP Morgan Chase & Co (JPM)

The "El Patron" of investment banking and financial services in the U.S., JP Morgan Chase & Co could gain momentum back to the glory years sooner than we think. Well, that is if the tariff disputes don't pick up again and steal the limelight.

Investment banking had come a long way since the financial crises back in '08 when banks were under capitalized in relation to their risky assets. Investment banks balance sheets in 2020 are much more robust and can take on the COVID-19 pandemic head-on.

The investment back had a lackluster first-quarter earnings release with both Revenue and Earnings Per Share missing analysts' expectations as the COVID-19 pandemic takes hold of the economy. Some highlights showed a record increase of 32% in JP Morgan’s trading division, while Bond trading revenue also shined coming in $1billion higher than analysts expected as Government Bonds.

More headwinds are projected over the short term, but with analysts' annual earnings growth expectations around 26% for the bank, you should look beyond COVID-19. The bank has also built a massive net reserve and is set to continue net reserve builds in the second quarter.

JP Morgan Chase & Co is well-positioned to take on the coronavirus effects for now, but the U.S. economy might not take lightly to another round of trade disputes coupled with COVID-19.
