BofA and JPMorgan estimates ratcheted lower at KBW

Following JPMorgan's (JPM) warning on the continued slowdown in trading activity this quarter, KBW cuts its Q2 EPS estimate for the Bank of Dimon to $1.38 from $1.45 and its full year operating EPS estimate to $5.51 from $5.65.

At Bank of America (BAC), it's the trading slowdown, the suspension of the buyback, and worry over litigation costs. The Q2 EPS estimate is cut to $0.30 from $0.33, and full year is lowered by a dime to $0.90. The team at KBW sees this year's buyback being halved to $2B after the Fed is finished with its review, but is more worried about how future legal costs will affect profitability.
