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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Wells Fargo have outperformed the industry over the last three months. However, the company possesses a disappointing earnings surprise history, having beaten the Zacks Consensus Estimate in only one of the trailing four quarters. The company’s second-quarter 2018 results were impacted by lower mortgage banking revenues and high expenses. However, lower provisions and higher net interest income aided results. Following the sales scandal and other issues, Wells Fargo has been slapped with new sanctions, including a cap on the assets position by the Federal Reserve. Though lower tax rate, easing of regulations and expansions will likely support the bank’s growth profile, the crisis related to the revelation of illegally opening millions of accounts in 2016, auto-lending issues and impact of other malpractices will take some time to alleviate. Nevertheless, the recent 2018 capital plan approval boosts investors' confidence." (7/30/2018)
  • 2. 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."
