  • Wells Fargo Q3 Profit Rises 13% Despite a Decline in Revenues; Home Loans Dip (WFC)

    Before the opening bell on Friday, financial services giant Wells Fargo & Co (WFC) reported a 13% year-over-year rise in third quarter profits, despite a slight decline in total quarterly revenues. The company's earnings were able to top estimates, but revenues came up short of views. The San Francisco-based company posted a third quarter net income of $5.32 billion, or 99 cents per share, up from the $4.72 billion, or 88 cents per share, the company earned in the same period a year ago. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, Wells Fargo was expected to earn 97 cents per share in the period. The company's total revenues fell to $20.5 billion in the third quarter, down from the $21.2 billion in revenues posted in the third quarter of 2012. On average, analysts were expecting Wells Fargo to see $20.97 billion in revenues in the quarter. Moreover, the company's net interest income came in at $10.75 billion in the quarter, up from $10.66 billion last year. However, non-interest income fell to $9.73 billion in the most recent period from $10.55 billion last year. “Wells Fargo continued to demonstrate strong and consistent financial performance in the third quarter,” said Chairman and CEO John Stumpf. “As our economy continues to transition to higher interest rates, our diversified business model and strong risk discipline contributed to record earnings per share along with continued strength in return on assets, return on equity and capital. The improvement in the housing market has been beneficial to our customers and significantly contributed to our broad-based credit improvement in the quarter. We also deepened relationships, resulting in increases in cross-sell across the Company. As we look forward, we remain well positioned to meet the needs of our customers and to perform for our shareholders.” In the third quarter, the company's total home lending originations dipped to $80 billion from $112 billion last year; home loan applications came in at $87 billion versus $146 billion a year ago. Keep in mind, Wells Fargo's business highly revolves around its mortgage segment. Wells Fargo shares were down 69 cents, or 1.67%, during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 21.24% year-to-date.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) offer a dividend yield of 2.90% based on Thursday's closing price of $41.44 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.20 per share.
