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

Dodge & Cox Comments on Wells Fargo - Aug 02, 2018

During the first half of 2018, we opportunistically added to Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) (down 7%), which was weak among bank stocks and detracted from performance. In February, Wells Fargo entered into a consent agreement with the Federal Reserve (Fed) that, among other things, placed restrictions on the bank’s asset growth (capped at $1.952 trillion). This regulatory agreement stemmed from Wells Fargo’s previously disclosed improper sales practices.



Since 2016, Wells Fargo has made substantial progress improving its governance, compliance controls, and operational risk management. Notably, the leadership and composition of the company’s board has improved, including the election of six new independent directors in 2017. Management has affirmed its commitment to have third parties conduct an initial risk management review by the end of 2018. The company has settled with regulators regarding its auto insurance and mortgage sales practices and has also resolved class-action lawsuits with shareholders and consumers. Furthermore, Wells Fargo passed the Fed’s annual industry stress test in June and received approval to use $32.9 billion for dividends and share buybacks over the next 12 months, representing a significant return of capital to shareholders.



After a comprehensive review, we believe Wells Fargo’s superior franchise, deep management team, track record of generating higher returns than other banks, and attractive valuation at 1.5 times book value make it a compelling long-term investment opportunity. On June 30, Wells Fargo was the Fund’s largest holding (a 3.9% position).

Dodge & Cox Comments on Wells Fargo - Feb 06, 2017

While we trimmed Financials on a net basis during the fourth quarter, we opportunistically added to Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) (up only 5% for 2016), which detracted from relative performance and was weak among bank stocks due to regulatory infractions and fines. We were disappointed to learn about the bank’s sales practices that resulted in improper account openings, but are convinced Wells Fargo is actively addressing the issues. After a comprehensive review, we believe Wells Fargo’s superior franchise, deep management team, track record of generating higher returns than other banks, and attractive valuation at 1.6 times book value make it an attractive long-term investment opportunity. On December 31, Wells Fargo was a 1.8% position in the Fund.

Weitz Funds Comments on Wells Fargo - Jan 26, 2017

Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) is a diversified financial services company. Shares rose materially during the quarter largely due to three tailwinds. First, the U.S. election results provided a boost to all bank stocks on expectations that industry regulatory burdens may ease. Second, higher interest rates and a steeper yield curve raised prospects for net interest margin (NIM) expansion. Third, the company took additional steps to address the “bogus account” scandal, including high-level management changes. The company’s very low-cost deposit base, ubiquitous distribution, ample capital and diverse business lines further our continued confidence. Wells Fargo’s stock trades at less than 14x expected earnings and a modest discount to our value estimate.
