NEW YORK — JPMorgan Chase, the biggest U.S. bank by assets, says it returned to a profit in the fourth quarter.
The bank said it had net income of $5.3 billion in the last three months of 2013, compared with a profit of $5.7 billion in the same period a year earlier.
On a per-share basis, JPMorgan said it had earned $1.30 a share in the quarter, compared with $1.39 a share a year earlier.
Revenue fell 1 percent to $24.1 billion, just above analysts' expectations of $23.9 billion.
The bank reported a loss in the third quarter, due to the bank's mounting legal costs. It was the bank's first quarterly loss in 10 years.
