Guru Investment Theses on Wells Fargo & Co

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.

Wally Weitz Comments on Wells Fargo - Nov 09, 2016

Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) is a financial services company. The opening of bogus bank and credit card accounts at Wells Fargo was a serious violation of customer trust. Management’s pressure on employees to “make the numbers” and their apparent slow response to the problem once it surfaced are serious lapses of judgement and culture. Members of top management are paying a financial price, and some may lose their jobs. The bank may face additional penalties, and the reputational damage is significant. From an investment perspective, though, while the stock will probably be under a cloud for some period of time, we do not expect a permanent impairment of the company’s business value. The company’s very low- cost deposit base, ubiquitous distribution, ample capital and diverse business lines give us confidence in the durability of Wells Fargo’s franchise. The stock trades at less than 12x our earnings estimates, and we continue to own the company at quarter end.

Mairs & Power Comments on Wells Fargo - Oct 31, 2016

Another name in the Fund that has been in the news recently is Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC). Following reports of widespread deceptive sales practices and resulting government fines, which have hurt both the stock price and the company’s reputation, we have received questions from many of our investors expressing concerns about our Wells Fargo position. While we share investors’ concerns about the extent of the unauthorized accounts problem at Wells Fargo, we have decided to hold existing positions for the present. We know many of the senior executives at Wells Fargo and believe they are people of good character. We do not think the current situation indicates a systemic problem with the values of the organization or its people and we are convinced that changes are underway that will remove the incentives that caused the problem. We are also expecting a slower growth rate for Wells Fargo going forward. Despite our expectation for slower growth, the market has (in our opinion) overly punished the stock and this is a very inopportune time to sell Wells Fargo. We will closely monitor the situation and the impact on the company’s competitive position and may make changes to our holdings of Wells Fargo if deemed appropriate.

Ruane Cunniff Comments on Wells Fargo - Oct 13, 2016

We did not add to or reduce our 2% position in Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) during the quarter, but recent events prompt us to share our thoughts on the bank with you. News emerged in September that since 2011, Wells Fargo employees had created up to 2.1 million sham customer accounts in order to meet aggressive sales quotas set by bank management. While this behavior caused the bank to fire some 5,300 employees over a period of five years, the bank was distressingly slow to change the incentives that prompted this bad behavior. We believe that Wells management has damaged the bond of trust the bank had built with its customers, and that senior executives should be held accountable for the practices their policies engendered. That said, it is important to note that only about 5% of the unauthorized accounts had fees associated with them—and that these fees came to about $2.6 million in total. Wells Fargo is an enormous enterprise, with 93 million customer accounts and $22.4 billion of net income in the past year. The sham accounts did not make money for Wells, and more likely cost it money as the bank paid bonuses to employees who opened inactive accounts. Wells has suffered deep reputational damage and we will keep a watchful eye on the remedies proposed by management, but we believe Wells remains an attractive franchise with a low valuation.

Tom Russo Comments on Wells Fargo - Sep 26, 2016

Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) continues to languish under negative investor sentiment towards large banks in general, despite being immune from some of the problems confronting its industry peers. Wells Fargo remains focused on consumer banking and retail banking, relying upon a large number of account relationships to build stickiness and create banking customer captivity. Wells Fargo shares trade for barely over eleven times net income and provide over three percent dividend yield. I believe that Wells Fargo will continue to enjoy funding benefits from low cost or deposit compared to its competitor bank which suffer higher borrowing costs to fund their own lending operations.

Ruane Cunniff Comments on Wells Fargo - Jul 13, 2016

Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) is the highest return and arguably the best run very large bank in the U.S. It is the number one U.S. bank in many categories including retail deposits; middle market, small business and used car lending; equipment and inventory financing; railcar leasing; and commercial and residential mortgage servicing and originations. It is in fewer volatile business lines than other large banks. It leads the industry in the intensity of its customer relationships with over six products per customer. The number of primary checking accounts at Wells is currently growing at around 5%, an impressive growth rate for a financial institution of this size. Through deposit-driven asset growth and stock buybacks, Wells has done a good job of counteracting shrinking net interest margins over the past decade.

Wells has a long-tenured management team and its record of technological innovation positions it well to handle both challenges from “fintech” disruptors and customer demands for access through a multitude of distribution channels. Wells has a good record of capital allocation, having added to per-share value during the financial crisis by buying Wachovia, expanding its footprint from its already fast-growing Western base to the equally vibrant Southeast. At the time, Wachovia’s “pick-a-pay” mortgage portfolio concerned many investors, but that portfolio’s quality has turned out to be better than even Wells expected. Recently, Wells acquired a large piece of General Electric’s finance business, an acquisition we think will work out well.

Last quarter, Wells’ $1.2 trillion in deposits cost only 0.10% on an annualized basis, the lowest interest cost among its peer group, if not the entire banking industry. Right now, the value of Wells’ deposit franchise is obscured by the unusually low interest rate environment and the fact that Wells is currently holding a high level of cash balances earning virtually nothing. Credit losses should rise in a more normal environment and new regulations requiring Wells to raise long term debt could pinch margins somewhat, but we think the boost in profits from higher interest rates and a redeployment of high cash balances would offset those impacts.

Wells trades at about 12 times our forward 12 months’ earnings estimate, a sharp discount to the S&P multiple of 17. Historically banks have sold at discounts to other publicly traded companies because of the perceived risk that comes with leverage. But Wells’ common equity capital ratio is roughly double pre-crisis levels, its underwriting standards are tighter, and it has exited some higher risk businesses. This suggests a higher relative multiple might be warranted.

Between our 2% weighting in Wells and our look-through interest in the Wells shares owned by Berkshire Hathaway, Sequoia shareholders have roughly a 3% exposure to the bank.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Wells Fargo - Apr 14, 2016

Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) ($49 per share) is one of the country’s largest banks, but it has avoided most of the headaches (and risks) associated with the global “money center” banks. It has a strong, conservative lending culture and it added an enormous quantity of cheap deposits during the financial crisis of 2007-09 by acquiring troubled banks. (It also has Warren Buffett (Trades,Portfolio), as a 10% owner, looking over its shoulder.) Wells has suffered compressed net interest margins (as has Redwood) in this period of artificially low rates, yet its earnings have grown to over $4 per share in fiscal year 2014 and again in 2015. When interest rates rise, Wells Fargo’s margins should widen, earnings should increase and the price investors are willing to pay for those earnings (P/E) may increase.

Davis Funds Comments on Wells Fargo - Sep 11, 2015

Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC), a representative holding in the Portfolio, is one of the largest and in our view one of the best-managed financial services companies in the United States, serving one in three households nationwide.1 Wells Fargo provides banking, insurance, investment, mortgage, and consumer finance services across North America through its extensive branch network as well as other channels such as loan and wealth management offices, call centers and the Internet. A key competitive advantage is Wells Fargo’s sizeable, low-cost retail deposit base that enables it to generate one of the highest net interest margins in the industry. Wells Fargo has strong capital ratios, is a smart risk manager and is well positioned for continued growth over the years ahead.
