  • JPMorgan Chase & Co posted a 7.3 percent decline in quarterly profit on Tuesday, as legal woes and weak demand for investment banking services capped off a tough year for Chief Executive Jamie Dimon.

    The largest U.S. bank had $1.1 billion of legal expenses in the fourth quarter, about $850 million of which was linked to a recent settlement for failing to report its suspicions of fraud at its client Bernard Madoff's fund.

    The bank agreed to some $20 billion of legal settlements in 2013 - almost equal to a typical year's profit - which covered everything from mortgages it packaged into bonds before the financial crisis, to bad derivatives trades it made in 2012.

    Dimon said some investigations into JPMorgan are just beginning, implying that legal issues are likely to dog the bank for some time, even if on a smaller scale.

    Legal headaches aside, the bank faces headwinds in businesses ranging from debt underwriting to advising companies on mergers. Rising bond yields are cutting into demand for issuing debt, and new rules designed to make the financial system safer are also cutting into trading volumes.

    Investment banking fee revenue dropped 3 percent to $1.67 billion, and stock and bond trading revenue combined was unchanged before accounting adjustments.

    Shares of JPMorgan were up 0.3 percent at $57.86 in afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

  • JPMorgan earns $5.3 billion despite legal woes

    Communication, Communication Design

    Is JPMorgan Chase finally putting its legal problems behind it?

    The bank earned $5.3 billion, or $1.30 per share, in the final three months of 2013. Revenue fell 1% to $24.1 billion.

    Excluding certain one-time items, JPMorgan (JPM, Fortune 500) said it earned $1.40 per share in the quarter. That topped analysts' expectations for $1.35 per share. Revenue beat expectations as well. Shares of JPMorgan, the largest bank by assets, were up about 1% in early trading.

    JPMorgan took a charge of $1.1 billion in the fourth quarter to resolve some of its biggest legal headaches. The charge was partially offset by profits from the sale of a large portion of JPMorgan's investment in Visa (V, Fortune 500), as well as the sale of the company's building at One Chase Manhattan Plaza.

    CEO Jamie Dimon said in a statement that the bank is pleased "to have put some significant issues behind us this quarter," adding that "it was in the best interests of our company and shareholders for us to accept responsibility, resolve these issues and move forward."

    The results come less than two weeks after JPMorgan agreed to pay $2.6 billion to settle lawsuits stemming from its relationship with disgraced financier Bernard Madoff.

    Rubber increased amid optimism that improvement in the Chinese economy may boost demand from the world’s largest consumer.

    Speculation grew that China may take additional steps to sustain growth in the world’s second-biggest economy as the Communist Party will hold a summit meeting in November, said Kazuhiko Saito, an analyst at broker Fujitomi Co. in Tokyo. China’s manufacturing strengthened more than forecast this month, data from HSBC Holdings Plc and Markit Economics showed Oct. 24.

    “Futures were supported by optimism about Chinese demand,” he said by phone today.

    China’s rubber industry urged the National Development and Reform Commission to scrap a 20 percent tax on natural rubber imports, the National Business Daily reported yesterday, citing unidentified people from tire companies as saying.

    Crude rubber stockpiles held at Japanese warehouses fell 2.7 percent to 4,386 tons on Oct. 10, according to data today from the Rubber Trade Association of Japan.

    Rubber for January delivery on the Shanghai Futures Exchange rose 0.2 percent to 19,405 yuan ($3,189) a ton. Thai rubber free-on-board declined 1.3 percent to 78.15 baht ($2.51) a kilogram yesterday, according to the Rubber Research Institute of Thailand.
