The Stagecoach Hits a Speed Bump

October 17, 2007 – Comments (1)

Wells Fargo (WFC) reported 3rd quarter earnings before the market open on Oct. 16.  Earnings were 68 cents/share, up 6% from the previous year, but 2 cents below expectations.  Given current market conditions and the mark-downs several of WFC’s competitors have announced recently, I didn’t think it was a bad result.  For what it’s worth, Fool contributor Emil Lee seems to agree it wasn’t a bad report in “All’s Well at Wells Fargo.”  The market, however, didn’t like the report and gave the stock a haircut.  From market close on the 15th to market close today, WFC is down 4.7% while the BKX bank index is down less than half that at 2.2%.  [more]
