JPMorgan Chase: Undervalued, But Shareholder Rewards Unlikely Until 2023
Adding back to credit reserves has crimped 2022 EPS expectations for JPM, but the compares get easier after Q2 '22. CCAR threw a wet blanket over JPM when results came out in June '22, but the buyback, which is temporarily suspended, will return for JPM. The next dividend increase will be announced this quarter and paid in early October, '22. The dividend should increase $0.10 per quarter or $0.40 from Q3 '22 through Q2 '23. Morningstar's 'fair value' estimate for JPM is $151 per share, leaving the stock at a discount to Mstar's fair value around 25%. Year-to-date (YTD) as of last night's (Tuesday, August 9th, 2022) close, JPMorgan's stock was still down -23.34% YTD while the SP 500 was down YTD -12.75%, for a YTD performance shortfall of over 1,000 basis points, which is certainly better than Coinbase and Carvana (a little humor and also no positions) but the decline still smarts. Let's look at the annual EPS and revenue figures for the last several years: EPS y/y gro Revenue y/y gro 2024 - est $13.66 +8% $142.4 3% 2023 - est $12.57 +13% $137.4 8% 2022 - est $11.20 -27% $127.1 5% 2021 $15.34 67% $121.6 bl 2% 2020 $8.87 -17% $120.3 bl 4% 2019 $10.72 19% $115.6 bl 9% 2018 $8.98 31% $105.8 bl 5% 2017 $6.88 16% $100.8 bl 3% Source: valuation spreadsheet from earnings reports and consensus estimates from IBES data by Refinitiv If you look at the expected revenue growth from 2022 to 2024, the consensus revenue estimate numbers, which have been rising, are expected to grow at an average rate of 5% per year, the same average rate of growth from 2017 - 2021. Financials as a sector, and particularly the big banks that benefitted from the Fed's massive liquidity additions, as well as the Congressional stimulus, have to pay the price in 2022 to build back credit reserves, that were all released in 2021. But the nice thing is that after Q2 '22 results, now in the books, the compares get easier, not just for JPMorgan but for many of the big banks and brokers. Both JPMorgan and Bank of America saw better net interest income (NII) from rising interest rates, and softer fees, probably from the mortgage businesses. Since the market lows in mid-June and the peak in interest rates - mainly the 10-year Treasury peaking at 3.5% also in mid-June - that trade will start to reverse. JPMorgan's operating results by segment: JPM operating results by segment (earnings reports, 10-Qs ) We are going to leave readers with one last table of JPM's operating results for the last 5 quarters. It's JPMorgan's "Corporate & Investment Bank" ((CIB)) (line 2) that tends to generate upside delay in EPS in good markets and thus becomes a drag or pull on EPS in tougher markets, as we saw in the first 6 months of 2022. Note the steady decline in CIB in terms of operating income from Q1 '21. That's been the big drag on the bank, and after Q2 '22 that starts to get easier. Summary / conclusion: Now that the toughest of the 2021 compares have passed for JPMorgan, and if the bottom has been put in as of mid-June '22, the year-over-year compares should look better and 2022 numbers should start to improve. However, owning the stock today, means investors likely have to wait for 2023 to see some material relative performance for the stock. Jamie Dimon's "hurricane" comments seem puzzling in hindsight, particularly after the July '22 nonfarm payroll report saw a 584,000 net new job increase by the US economy, which should portend well for JPMorgan's consumer segment, which is the largest segment of the bank by revenue. (It was interesting reading the JPM conference call notes after earnings, which readers can find here on Seeking Alpha, but Mike Mayo went after Jamie Dimon a little bit for the histrionics and hyperbole around the economy that Jamie made in early '22.)
JPMorgan Chase: The Industry Leader Is Too Cheap To Ignore
JPMorgan is the U.S.' biggest bank, with a balance sheet size of about $2.87 trillion. JPM has leading interests in retail banking, wealth management, asset management, global markets, and investment banking. The bank's stock is down almost 30% YTD and now trades at a P/E below x10, P/S below x3 and P/B below x1.5. JPM is currently valued like a "normal" bank, not like a leader. I see material upside of almost 70%, as I value JPM stock based on a residual earnings framework and analyst consensus EPS. Thesis I prefer the best over the cheapest. While the best doesn't always come at a reasonable price, in rare occasions the patient investors can accumulate shares of an industry leader at depressed prices. Then it pays to be aggressive. Looking at JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s (JPM) risk/reward ratio, I argue the industry leader in banking is currently on sale. JPMorgan stock is down almost 30% YTD and now trades at a P/E below x10, P/S below x3 and P/B below x1.5. While JPM is trading at a premium to US industry peers such as Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC), I argue the premium is justified. Seeking Alpha I see material upside of almost 70% as I value JPM stock based on a residual earnings framework and analyst consensus EPS. My target price is $194.48/share. The Leading Global Bank JPMorgan is the U.S.' biggest bank, with a balance sheet size of about $2.87 trillion. Thus, JPM is about $700 million bigger than the U.S.' second biggest bank: Bank of America. However, a simple comparison of balance sheet size does not fully capture the bank's leading position. JPMorgan is a diversified financial service provider and has interests in retail/consumer banking, private wealth management, asset management, global markets/trading, and investment banking. While many banks have an interest in all these verticals, including Citi, BofA, and UK's Barclays (BCS), arguably only JPMorgan is an undisputed top three, if not top one, contender in all of the above-mentioned business segments. As of December 2021, JPM generates about 40% of total revenue from consumer/retail banking, 37% from corporate and investment banking (which also includes securities trading and the broader global markets segment), 14% from wealth & asset management and about 8% from commercial banking. Investopedia JPMorgan's diversified revenue exposure is important, and arguably underappreciated. It makes the bank much less vulnerable to cyclical downturns as many market participants think. For example, in low interest rate environments and steady markets, the investment banking and wealth management arm is poised to deliver a strong performance. In a stressed market, trading and global market activities outperform. And rising interest rates stimulate income from consumer lending exposure. Not Cheap But Very Attractive Buying JPMorgan stock is not cheap when compared to the US' and European banking peers. Specifically, JPM trades at a P/E of about x10, P/S of about x2.5 and P/B of almost x1.5. For reference, Citi trades at a P/E of x7 and a P/B of x0.55. Similarly, Deutsche Bank (DB) is valued at a P/E of x6 and a P/B of x0.25. But buying cheap can be expensive -- especially in the banking industry. This has been demonstrated by the "cheap banks," who have underperformed the market and JPMorgan for many years. Seeking Alpha Moreover, please ignore JPM's relative premium for a moment and focus on the company's absolute valuation and risk/reward. According to research by Goldman Sachs, the cyclical low for bank stocks is usually around the x1 P/B multiple, and the historical average is somewhere around x1.5. That said, JPM--the industry leader--is currently trading at levels equal to the historical average of the banks. Or in other words, JPM is currently valued like a "normal" bank, not like the leader. Goldman Sachs Research, Financial Times Graph Residual Earnings Valuation In my opinion, banks are prime candidates to be valued with a residual earnings ("RE") valuation, given that the RE framework anchors on both the income statement and the balance sheet as well as accrual accounting. That said, I apply the following assumptions: To forecast EPS, I anchor on consensus analyst forecast as available on the Bloomberg Terminal 'till 2023. In my opinion, any estimate beyond 2023 is too speculative to include in a valuation framework - especially for banks. To estimate the cost of capital, I use the WACC framework. I model a three-year regression against the S&P 500 to find the stock's beta. For the risk-free rate, I used the U.S. 10-year treasury yield as of July 29, 2022. My calculation indicates a fair required return of about 10%. To derive JPM's tax rate, I extrapolate the 3-year average effective tax-rate from 2019, 2020 and 2021. For the terminal growth rate, I apply 3% percentage points, approximately the nominal GDP growth, which I think is a fair assumption for an industry leader.
