BlackRock-The asset management giant’s share price rose 3.6% after BlackRock’s third-quarter revenue and profits exceeded expectations. The company reported earnings per share of US$10.95 and revenue of US$5.05 billion, driven by the increase in expense income. Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv expect earnings per share of $9.35 and revenue of $4.9 billion.
JPMorgan Chase-Although JPMorgan Chase’s quarterly profit was better than expected, its stock price fell by 2.6%. In terms of assets, the income of the largest US bank was also higher than expected.

Bank of America fell more than 1%, Wells Fargo fell 1.9%, and Citigroup fell about 1%.
