GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Wells Fargo & Co

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.

From Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio)’s The Gabelli Equity Income Fund Second Quarter 2014 Shareholder Commentary.

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.

From Wallace Weitz’s second quarter 2013 letter to shareholders.

Libertadpp,
depends on how you calc FCF. if you add-in changes in working capital,i.e using operating cash flow - capex, then FCF will be higher than net income if there were positive changes in working cap. also, if the company has a lot of goodwill (and thus goodwill amortization), FCF will be higher than net income. i would avoid companies with a lot of goodwill as they have done acquisitions and aren't growing organically (possible flawed biz model) and there is a risk they overpaid for an acquisition and will have to write down goodwill and eps will be hit as a result.

How can Free Cash Flow be always bigger than net income?, because of high ROIC?

It would be nice if we could make adjustments to the dividend growth rate using the 3 year in addition to the 5 year, WFC is a good example because due to the crash, the 5 year is not a true picture of future dividend growth. Using only the 5 year growth rate for WFC, renders the yield on cost number to be of no use.

Otherwise this page is fantastic and a great tool. Thanks.
