The sector is the largest in his portfolio by far

Investor Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) endlessly encourages investors to stick to their “circle of competence.” At his Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) annual conference in May, he said that he naturally took to the insurance business, which would become the core of his business empire.

“I knew when I met [Geico executive] Lorimer Davidson in January of 1951, I could get insurance. I mean, what he said made so much sense to me in the three or four hours I spent with him on that Saturday. So, I dug into it and I could understand it. My mind worked

Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) set the tone for the 2019 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting. He said that people involved in creating cryptocurrencies “honored the life and work of Judas Iscariot.” On many major subjects, questions were fired at Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) and Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) related to short comings which self-proclaimed expert observers see at Berkshire. These questions seemed to ask the same question each time. Which Berkshire employee/executive is the one who let everyone down even though they appeared to be giving their best effort?

Some thoughts on the bank following 1st-quarter results

Wells Fargo (WFC) recently reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

For the quarter, revenues declined slightly to $21.6 billion, with a 1% increase in net interest income from a higher net interest margin (NIM) offset by a 4% decline in noninterest income. Net income was $5.9 billion, with diluted EPS climbing to $1.2 (helped by a lower effective tax rate).

Total average deposits were $1.3 trillion, down 3% from the year-ago period. The decline was due to lower Wholesale Banking deposits (-8%) and Wealth & Investment Management deposits (-14%), partially offset by higher retail banking deposits

The beleaguered bank’s next boss will face a heavy lift

Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) once enjoyed an enviable reputation among America’s biggest banks. Its brand was a watchword for prudence, honesty and quality customer service. That perception was shattered in 2016 with the revelation of a widespread fake accounts fraud scheme. Unsurprisingly, the bank’s reputation has been severely tarnished by that revelation, as well as by the series of further scandals that followed. Despite its best efforts to turn the corner, Wells Fargo’s problems continue to fester.

Evidently, the pressures of dealing with the extensive internal reform program while under intense government scrutiny have

2019 appears set to be a year of historic importance. Fears that the post-Great Recession bull market will come to an end are mounting, as are fears of outright economic downturn. There are countless factors at play, but that has not stopped some top analysts and institutions from making a stab at prognostication.

Some thoughts on the bank's 4th-quarter and full-year results

Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) reported fourth-quarter and fiscal 2018 results on Tuesday morning.

The company ended the year with $745 billion in average consumer and small banking deposits (down 1%), with the slight year-over-year decline driven by customers moving cash to higher rate alternatives. Primary consumer checking accounts increased approximately 2% to 24 million, with digital customers and digital secure sessions +4% and +20%, respectively, reflecting continued customer migration to digital channels (as noted at JPMorgan’s (JPM) 2018 Investor Day, digitally engaged clients have a roughly 10% higher retention than non-digital clients).
