Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co., speaks at the Economic Club of Washington September 12, 2016 in Washington, DC.

JPMorgan Chase is expected to release the results from its fourth quarter at 7 am Friday.

JPMorgan is the first of the big banks to report in what is expected to be a unconventional earnings cycle for the industry, mostly on account of the late-arriving tax reform that has caused many banks to book losses on deferred tax assets that declined in value.

JPMorgan is expected to take a one-time hit of $2 billion in the fourth quarter from the new tax law, equivalent to $0.57 per share.

Nonetheless, Wall Street analysts are expecting the investment bank to report earnings of $1.69 per share.

Here's what else analysts will be looking for:

  • Fourth-quarter revenue of $25.5 billion
  • Net income of $5.9 billion
  • How much will tax reform ultimately cost the bank in the fourth quarter, and any guidance on longer-term impacts.
  • Any early signs of impact from the newly implemented European regulatory reform known as MiFID II.
  • Trading has suffered all year, how much will revenues drop in the fourth quarter?
  • On the retail side, how's profitability from the uber-popular Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card coming along?
