What are Wall Street analysts saying about Wells Fargo & Co stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Wells Fargo & Co stock:
  • 1. Vining Sparks analysts commented, "While the recent issues surrounding WFC have definitely damaged its reputation, we believe the fundamental profitability and earnings power of WFC’s franchise is still intact and currently hidden by recent issues. WFC should still generate a mid to high-single digit underlying increase in shareholder value on an annualized basis from dividend payouts and TBV growth. We believe this strong value creation paired with its currently pressured valuation should provide long-term investors that can wait for the inflection point in the second half of 2018E the opportunity to realize total returns over 20% over the next 12 to 18 months." (4/13/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Wells Fargo underperformed the industry over the last six months. While earnings estimates for the soon-to-be-reported quarter have seen slight revision lately, the company possesses a decent earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in two of the trailing four quarters. Wells Fargo has been slapped with new sanctions including a cap on the assets position by the Federal Reserve. Further, the review process of the bank’s Wealth and Investment Management segment is also in preliminary stages. Moreover, Moody’s has downgraded the rating outlook of the bank to negative, though S&P has kept unchanged at stable. Though consistent growth in loans and deposits, lower tax rate and expansions will likely support its growth profile, the current crisis related to the revelation of illegally opening millions of illegal accounts in 2016 at the company will take some time to alleviate."
