Wells Fargo Reported Worse-than-expected Losses and Reduced Dividend

17.07.2020 News

Today Wells Fargo, the fourth-largest U.S. bank, reported record losses of $2.4 billion in the second quarter, which was even worse than the bank management and Wall Street analysts expected.

For the three months by June 30, Wells Fargo’s loss was $0.66. This is $0.46 worse than analysts’ forecast of $0.20 loss per share.

One of the largest US mortgage lenders reported a total quarterly loss of $2.4 billion compared to a profit of $6.2 billion for the same quarter last year. This is the company’s first loss since the 2008 financial crisis.

Total quarterly profit has fallen by 16% to $17.8 billion, which is also lower than the average analytical estimate of $18.4 billion.

Wells Fargo has also announced that it sharply reduces its dividends to $0.10 per share from $0.51 paid in the last four quarters. The reduction was much larger than Wall Street expected.

“We are extremely disappointed in both our second quarter results and our intent to reduce our dividend. Our view of the length and severity of the economic downturn has deteriorated considerably from the assumptions used last quarter,” said CEO Charles Scharf.

During the reporting quarter, Wells Fargo issued $6.2 billion more loans than in the previous quarter. The balance of total loans as of June 30 amounted to $935.2 billion.

At the same time, total deposits also grew by 9% or $117.7 billion to $1.4 trillion.
