Launching Q3 earnings season, moments ago JPM reported third quarter Net Income of $6.7 billion and EPS of $1.76, beating expectations $1.67 and 18 cents, or 7% higher than a year ago, on “managed” revenue of $26.2 BN, beating consensus expectations of $25.7 BN, up 3% from the $25.5BN in Q3 2016 revenue .

JPM reported average core loans up 7% Y/Y and 2% Q/Q, with net interest income up $1.2Bn Y/Y to $12.5bn, “primarily driven by the net impact of rising rates and loan growth” even as average NIM missed.

Commenting on the results, if not on this morning’s new all time high in bitcoin, Dimon said “JPMorgan Chase delivered solid results in a competitive environment this quarter with steady core growth across the platform. And for the first time, the Firm led the nation in total U.S. deposits, as consumers and businesses continue to view us as their partner of choice.

The global economy continues to do well and the U.S. consumer remains healthy with solid wage growth. Unfortunately, natural disasters in the U.S. and abroad have impacted many of our customers and we have responded with enormous financial support as well as the expertise and generosity of our employees to help these customers, clients and communities. Building on our success to-date in Detroit, we have announced new initiatives in Chicago and Washington, D.C. to drive inclusive economic growth in those communities. We will be there to do our part. And this is in addition to the $1.7 trillion of credit and capital supplied this year to consumers and small and mid-sized businesses and corporate clients.”
