JPMorgan stock target trimmed by Oppenheimer following changes in market multiple

On Monday, Oppenheimer adjusted its price target for JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM ) to $217, a slight decrease from the previous $219, while maintaining an Outperform rating on the shares. This action followed a trading session where JPMorgan's stock declined by 6.5%, a sharper drop than the S&P 500's 1.4% and the BKX index's 1.5% fall.

The financial firm's earnings per share (EPS) of $4.44 outpaced the estimated $4.15 and the consensus of $4.17. According to the analyst, the reported figures included a minor reserve release and a special FDIC assessment. When these elements are excluded, the core economic EPS would be around $4.61, surpassing the estimated $4.35, which the analyst described as a "nice beat."

Despite the reduction in the price target, Oppenheimer remains optimistic about JPMorgan's performance. The adjustment was attributed to changes in the market multiple, while the estimates for 2025 have remained nearly unchanged.

The analyst pointed out that there was no significant increase in guidance which might have been a factor in the stock's underperformance on earnings day.

"Other than that perhaps everyone already owns and loves it and that there was no major upping of guidance, we don't see why the stock should have traded down. The results looked like a solid beat to us," they said.
