Earnings per share (EPS) of $11.58 beats estimates of $8.56. fixed income currency and commodities as well as investment banking revenues. Return on tangible common equity of 15.9%.

  4. Lockheed Martin upgraded to a buy-equivalent overweight rating at JPMorgan. The analysts are constructive about defense stocks into first quarter earnings due to year to date underperformance and weak sentiment.
