JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs: reporting Q1'2021
Information is not investment advice
JPM and Goldman Sachs report their earnings on April 14 for Q1’2021.
As the biggest US banks, JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs are regularly cited for the commentaries and financial evaluations their specialists give in regards to other companies. But what about these banks themselves, are their stocks a good buy?
JPM’s financial results for the fourth quarter of 2020 came out higher than expected. Observers had predicted an EPS of $2.72 rising 6% to the previous year, and JPMorgan brought an EPS of $3.79 which was considerably higher than the prognosis.
Goldman Sachs beat the expectations, too, but with a far more significant gap. While the EPS of Q4’2020 was forecast to be $7.00, the actual mark came out to be $12.08 – almost twice as high as the prognosis. However, similar to JPM, this stock did not make any gain on the day of the earnings release – in line with most of the market, it fell and erased most of January gains.
Eventually, both stocks gained value making new all-time highs as fundamentals are not presenting any impediment for these banks to keep expanding.

In general, observers are projecting a 20% value growth for the JPM stock this year. That would mean the price target of around $180 by the last quarter of 2021 against the current area of $150-160. The consensus for the EPS of Q1’2021 is $2.81-2.85 – almost the same as the previously expected mark for the EPS of Q4’2020 that was confidently surpassed by the actual data.
The consensus for the EPS of Q1’2021 of Goldman Sachs is $8.75 – proportionately higher than that of JPM. Noting higher fluctuation of this stock, it may be moved much more in case of a prognosis-beating scenario than JPM. A price area of $360 may well be taken as an optimistic price range.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
