08:04 EDTWFCWells Fargo reports Q1 provision for credit losses $325M
Reports net charge-offs of $825M, down $594M from first quarter 2013. Reports $500M reserve release due to continued strong credit performance and improved economic conditions. Chairman and CEO John Stumpf said, "First quarter 2014 earnings were another record for our Company and capital levels continued to strengthen. Returning more capital to our shareholders has remained a priority for Wells Fargo and we were pleased to have received a non-objection to our 2014 CCAR submission." CFO Tim Sloan said, “We are very pleased with Wells Fargo’s performance in the first quarter, particularly in some of the fundamental drivers of long term growth: loans, deposits, investments, capital and credit quality. Revenue remained relatively stable despite the impact of fewer days in the quarter, reflecting contributions from our diversified sources of fee revenue. In addition, we generated revenue more efficiently as we reduced expenses year-over-year and compared with fourth quarter of last year.”

12:36 EDTWFCEarnings Preview: Wells Fargo to report results after dividend hike
Wells Fargo (WFC), a bank holding company, is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the open on Friday, April 11, with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 97c on revenue of $20.6B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 90c-$1.02 on revenue of $19.5B-$22.41B. LAST QUARTER: Wells Fargo reported higher than expected Q4 EPS and revenue. The company said that it believes it can continue to grow its net interest margin over time. In a statement, CEO John Stumpf said, "Strong earnings power and capital levels, and an improving economic outlook are major reasons why we look ahead to 2014 with optimism." On March 26, Wells Fargo reported that the Federal Reserve had approved the bank’s capital allocation plan. Under the plan, Wells plans to pay a dividend of 35c per share. The dividend, which was increased 16.7% over prior levels, must be approved by the bank’s board of directors at its April 29 meeting. The bank also authorized the repurchase of an additional 350M shares of its own stock. STREET RESEARCH. In a note to investors on April 8, UBS wrote that Q1 may be the first quarter in four years that Wells Fargo’s EPS will not grow versus the previous quarter, as it believes the bank was hit with seasonal costs in Q1 that were not offset by revenue increases. The bank’s EPS will drop to 97c in Q1, down from $1.00 in Q4, but will still be up 5% versus the first quarter of 2013, the firm predicted. On a positive note, UBS contended that Wells Fargo was "a relative winner" of the Fed’s capital plan approval process. Although Wells' board has approved a 350M share increase in the bank’s stock repurchases, it typically doesn’t carry out large share repurchases, UBS stated. Wells should benefit from a continued U.S. economic recovery, but its shares already reflect such an outlook, according to UBS, which kept a Neutral rating on the stock. Meanwhile, Oppenheimer was somewhat upbeat about the sector's outlook. In a note to investors on April 3, the firm predicted that bank stocks would outperform the broader market by a few hundred basis points per year. Loan growth "remains sluggish," but reduced credit costs and expenses should enable banks to report results that show slight year-over-year improvements, the firm contended. PRICE ACTION: Wells’ stock is little changed over the last month, but is up 6% so far this year and nearly 29% over the last 12 months.
