Genius Jamie Dimon and those wizards at JPMorgan Bank One H&Q Chemical Chase Manhattan Bank want to add a few syllables to the Morgan moniker, bolstered by a 68% increase in Q4 awesomeness. Just as the ink on the last “synergy” plan from the Bank One merger is drying, banks like SunTrust and US Bancorp are emerging in speculative merger talk. Retail brokerages are also rumored to be in consideration, despite hefty current valuations. Dimon has been seen trying to decapitate the Bronze Bull on Broadway shrieking, “There can be only one!” Despite alarming many pedestrians, this is a far subtler challenge to an acquisition pissing contest than Stan O’Neal’s gratuitous substance acquisition abuse.
