By Peter Nurse
Investing.com -- Stocks in focus in premarket trade on Friday, January 13th. Please refresh for updates.
JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM ) stock fell 2.9% after the investment bank set aside a hefty $1.4 billion in anticipation of an economic slowdown even as it reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit on the back of strong performance at its trading unit.
Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC ) stock fell 3.9% after the lender reported a 50% decline in profit for the fourth quarter, racking up more than $3B in legal costs as well as boosting loan loss reserves for a potential economic slowdown.
Bank of America (NYSE: BAC ) stock fell 3% despite the lender reporting a better-than-expected fourth quarter profit as rate hikes helped it charge more interest on loans to customers. The bank's investment banking fees more than halved in the quarter, taking some shine off the gains in its consumer business.

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT ) stock fell 3.2% after Goldman Sachs downgraded the aerospace giant to 'sell' from 'neutral', saying shares could fall substantially if the U.S. government reduces defense spending.
BlackRock (NYSE: BLK ) stock fell 0.5% after the world's largest asset manager posted a drop in fourth quarter profit on Friday, as a global market rout pressured fee income and assets under management fell.
Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT ) stock rose 0.7% after Bank of America upgraded its stance on the construction equipment company to 'buy' from 'neutral', saying the company has a "roadmap to outperformance."
