Guru Investment Theses on Wells Fargo & Co

Bill Frels Comments on Wells Fargo - Oct 20, 2014

Another strong contributor to performance was Wells Fargo (WFC). Having weathered the financial crisis of 2008-2009 better than most, Wells Fargo has emerged as the go-to bank for depositors in search of a safe haven. With its consumer-friendly reputation, as well as a knack for achieving significant loan and deposit growth, Wells Fargo has been able to leverage its positive brand profile to attract new customers.

Chris Davis Comments on Wells Fargo - Sep 08, 2014

Wells Fargo (WFC), another representative holding in the Fund, is one of the largest and we believe best-managed financial services companies in the United States. Wells Fargo provides banking, insurance, investment, mortgage, and consumer finance services across North America through its branch network as well as other channels. A key competitive advantage is its sizeable, low-cost retail deposit base that enables it to generate one of the highest net interest margins in the industry. We believe that risk management is a core company strength and that this business is well positioned for the years ahead.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Wells Fargo & Co - Jul 25, 2014

Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) (1.7%) (WFC - $52.56 - NYSE) is a diversified financial services company. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, the firm provides banking, insurance, investments, mortgage, and consumer and commercial finance through more than 9,000 stores and 12,000 ATMs. Wells Fargo serves one in three households in America, and as of December 31, 2013, it had $1.5 trillion in customer assets. Longer term, we expect Wells Fargo to continue to grow market share of domestic deposits due to its strong brand and diversified product base.

Lountzis Asset Management Comments on Wells Fargo - Mar 21, 2014

WELLS FARGO (WFC) is the fourth largest bank in the country with assets of $1.4 trillion at year-end 2013. The company generated operating revenues of $83.8 billion in 2013 with net income of $21.9 billion and reported earnings of $3.89 per share.



The company is a diversified financial services company operating in a broad range of markets including the east and west coasts of our country, as well as several business segments including, banking, insurance, investments, mortgage, and commercial and consumer finance through over 9,000 locations, 12,000 ATM’s and the Internet. Wells Fargo, like US Bancorp, also generates significant fee revenues providing a more stable and recurring revenue stream less impacted by the declining interest rates that have negatively impacted net interest margins over the past few years. In 2013, the company generated net interest income after the provision for credit losses of $40.5 billion while generating fee revenue of $41 billion. Net income for 2013 was $21.9 billion or $3.89 per diluted share.



We believe that Wells Fargo’s diverse business model will continue to thrive in various economic environments and will benefit when interest rates rise, augmenting the net interest margin to once again exceed 4%; a level it has fallen below over the past several quarters. Nevertheless, Wells Fargo remains an outstanding financial services company generating a return on tangible common equity of 17%, and a return on assets of 1.4%. The company also maintains leadership positions in several businesses including a leading originator and servicer of mortgages. In fact, the company originates one of every three mortgages in this country.



Over the next several years in a more normalized interest rate environment, we believe that Wells Fargo can generate in excess of $5 per diluted share in earning power. We estimate the company can earn in excess of $3.55 in 2014 and $3.80 in 2015.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Wells Fargo - Jul 15, 2013

Wells Fargo (WFC--$41)(WFC) Wells Fargo was a beneficiary of the financial crisis (though it was hard to tell at the time as the stock price dipped under $10). It avoided serious balance sheet problems and was able to buy (rescue) Wachovia Bank on very favorable terms. It has a great loan underwriting culture, very cheap deposits and is in a very strong position to take advantage of economic recovery and higher interest rates.
