As violence in Israel stretches to nearly a week, the Israeli military has instructed civilians in Gaza City to evacuate, fueling concerns over the possibility of an Israeli ground incursion into the territory. The Israeli Defense Forces haven’t confirmed such plans but have gradually amassed troops at the border and have given the roughly 1.1 million residents of north Gaza about 24 hours, or before midnight local time, to leave the area, according to the United Nations. Hamas has rejected the calls for evacuation. As of Friday morning, almost 2,900 people have been killed so far in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank.
JPMorgan Chase reported third-quarter revenue of $40.69 billion, more than the LSEG analyst consensus of $39.63 billion. The bank said earnings per share for the period was $4.33, but it was not immediately clear whether that could be compared to the $3.96 consensus estimate. It did appear to be a beat, but not clear by how much. Overall, net income was up 24% for the quarter and net revenue was up 15% excluding items related to the First Republic takeover. Higher rates helped the bank more than expected with interest income topping expectations.
UnitedHealth shares were up 1.6% after the health insurance giant posted earnings of $6.56 per share for the third quarter, exceeding an LSEG estimate of $6.32 per share. Revenue of $92.4 billion was also above expectations. Revenue from premiums and services topped analyst expectations. The company also raised its full-year earnings per share guidance.
