What is American Express?

The company operates globally and has a number of strategic partnerships with third-party card issuers.

Among the other key figures at the company are: Douglas E. Buckminster (Group President, Global Consumer Services); Jeffrey C. Campbell (Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer); and Paul D. Fabara (President, Global Services Group).

What is the modern history of American Express?

Founded in 1850 as an express mail business, the firm soon branched out into money orders, and by 1903 it had assets of $28 million. Travellers’ cheques established American Express as a global business in the early decades of the 20thcentury, and in 1959 it started issuing embossed plastic cards – a first for the industry.

In the 1980s, American Express made a series of acquisitions as part of moves to establish an investment banking operation. But it decided to exit the business a decade later, spinning off its last investment banking interests as Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. During the financial crisis in November 2008, American Express won Federal Reserve approval to convert to a bank holding company, making it eligible for help under the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

What are the latest developments at American Express?

In its full year 2017 financial results, American Express reported net income of $2.7 billion, down sharply from $5.4 billion the previous year. Diluted earnings per share were $2.97, compared with $5.65 for 2016. However, excluding the impacts of the Trump administration’s U.S. Tax Act, earnings per share were $5.87. This was in line with the guidance the company gave in October 2017.

The American Express share price has seen considerable movement in the first two decades of this century. From just over $25 in October 2001, the shares hit $65 in June 2007 before plunging to just above $10 in March 2009. But they made a strong recovery, reaching $95 in July 2014. Another sharp drop followed in early 2016, and then the shares powered up again, hitting an all-time high of $101 in February 2018.

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
