Dimon Just Spent a Year’s Pay on JPMorgan Stock After Bank Rout

750x-1[1]by: 

  • Chief executive buys 500,000 shares for $26.6 million
  • JPMorgan stock advances the most in more than four years

Jamie Dimon, chairman and chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co., spent $26.6 million to buy shares of his bank Thursday after they tumbled to the lowest price in more than two years. On Friday, the stock surged 8 percent, the most in more than four years.

JPMorgan, the largest U.S. lender by assets, had dropped 20 percent this year through the end of regular trading Thursday in New York.  Read More…
