Bank Results Serve As Warning Sign For Wall Street

A tough week ahead is expected for Wall Street as banks reported mixed earnings results over the past week.

Citigroup CEO Jane Fraser commented that “the long-awaited rebound in investment banking has yet to materialize,” following the release of her bank’s disappointing second-quarter results. While consumer banking strengthened, Citigroup’s corporate and investment banking unit tanked, pushing overall profits down 36%. Their investment banking unit declined 24% in the second quarter.

JPMorgan’s consumer business also strengthened, with CEO Jamie Dimon telling analysts that “they are spending down their excess cash.” Still, the bank’s corporate business underperformed, contributing to a 6% decline in its investment banking fees from a year ago.

Goldman Sachs, due to release its second-quarter earnings on Wednesday, is expected to report a decline in its investment banking revenue of 32% as well as a 17% trade decline.

Morgan Stanley’s second-quarter results, due on Tuesday, are expected to show a 4% drop in investment banking and a 19% decline in trading.
