Confident Investor comments: At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in this stock as long as the price is correct. Most of the fundamentals of this company are good but there are some concerns. I am going to leave the stock on my Watch List since the biggest reason the stock has dropped to Fair is the slower growth of sales in the last several years. If sales increases with a healthier economy then it is likely that JPM will be even stronger.
