Wells Fargo’s 4%+ Dividend Yield Offers Support to Shares
Image Source: Mike Mozart. Wells Fargo’s lack of a sizable investment bank and trading operations is a bit of a Rorschach Test for analysts and investors. On the one hand, it makes it harder to compete for business from the largest of large corporates, since it is not a full one stop shop. On the other hand, it means higher-quality earnings from bread-and-butter banking and reduced exposure to the wildly cyclical and low return world of investment-banking and trading. Given its impressive dividend yield of 4.1% as of this writing, we think the shares have a floor beneath them, barring any additional scandals coming to light--something we think is unlikely at this stage. Our fair value estimate remains $52 per share.

Empirical Support for Porter’s “Gospel,” Plus Comments on the “Head Fake” Rotation
“Let’s be very clear: There is strong empirical quantitative evidence that the price-to-fair value equation (“factor”) is predictive of returns, which is what matters for value investors, and in Morningstar’s case, the moat assessment is just part of that overarching conclusion (fair value estimate). Researchers continue to attack the moat “factor” on grounds that don’t make any sense, in my view, and are cherry-picking parameters to assess value investing.” – Brian Nelson, CFA
