JPMorgan Chase – The bank reported quarterly profit of $2.82 per share compared to a consensus estimate of $2.50 a share, but that did include 23 cents in tax benefits. Revenue beat forecasts as well, but profit on lending fell as interest rates declined.
Johnson & Johnson – J&J reported adjusted quarterly profit of $2.58 per share, beating consensus estimates by 12 cents a share. Revenue also beat forecasts and the health-care giant raised its full-year sales outlook.
Domino's Pizza – The restaurant operator earned $2.19 per share for its second quarter, beating forecasts of $2.02 a share. Sales were below analyst estimates, however. U.S. comparable-store sales were up 3%, also missing forecasts.
