JPMorgan Chase is the largest U.S. bank and the largest company of any kind in the financial sector. The bank consistently posts some of the highest profitability metrics in the industry and has vast operations in both consumer and investment banking.
In five years, investors can still expect more of the same from JPMorgan: leading market share in credit cards, investment banking revenue, and increasing share in other segments such as merchant services. With leading market shares and treasure troves of data, the bank should be able to deliver much more automation, massively lowering costs and increasing speed.
JPMorgan’s heavy tech investments should lead to continued customer growth, increased loyalty, and more efficiency, bolstering the bank’s profitability in the years ahead regardless of what interest rates do. The magnitude of these cost- and time-saving innovations is why JPMorgan’s stock is a good bet to be much higher five years from now.
