On Monday, BMO (TSX:BMO) Capital Markets adjusted its price target for JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), decreasing it slightly to $195 from the previous $196 while retaining a Market Perform rating on the stock. The adjustment follows JPMorgan's first-quarter results, which included a credit and fees performance that surpassed expectations.

Despite the positive aspects of the report, BMO Capital's outlook for the banking giant's future earnings remains unchanged. The analyst noted that the increase in projected fees for JPMorgan is counterbalanced by an anticipated rise in expenses. Moreover, the unchanged full-year net interest income (NII) guidance of $90 billion, which includes market contributions, was a point of contention for investors who had hoped for an upward revision.

The firm highlighted that the market's expectation for a decline in market-related NII could be compensated for by higher Corporate & Investment Bank (CIB) fees. However, the decision by JPMorgan to release reserves during a period marked by economic, geopolitical, and policy uncertainties was unexpected, according to the analyst's remarks.

The revised target price of $195 is based on a 1.8 times multiple of JPMorgan's estimated 2025 tangible common equity (TCE), which itself is derived from a 15% return on tangible common equity (RoTCE) and a target price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12. The analysis reflects a cautious but stable outlook for the bank amid a complex operating environment.
