JPMorgan Is 'The LeBron James Of Banking'

The "LeBron James of banking" is how analysts described JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) after coming off a strong third-quarter report that saw a earnings and revenue beat.

"JPMorgan showed again that it is the LeBron James of banking given both defense, including lower QoQ credit losses and good efficiency; and offense, including 8 percent YoY higher revenue with double digit growth in loans and deposits, and likely market-share gains from European investment banks," said CLSA analysts.

JPMorgan is seeing momentum on both sides of the floor.
