Wells Fargo Reports (WFC) Record Q3 Earnings: Strong financial performance & position

Wells Fargo Summary Q3 2011 Well Fargo reported record quarterly net income of $4.1 billion and record earnings per share of $0.72. This was an overall strong financial performance, even though net revenues decreased QoQ and YoY. Wells Fargo continues a conservative strategy which has maintained strong levels of capital, decreased credit losses, and resulted in a very good return on assets of 1.21%. The latest quarter reported continues the improvement of earnings and the balance sheet.

Wells Fargo Income Statement Q3 2011 Wells Fargo reported net revenues of $19.63 billion, record net income of $4.06 billion, and record earnings per share of $0.72. From the prior quarter Q2 2011, net revenues were down -3.72%, net income up +2.71%, and earnings per share up +2.86%. From the prior year Q3 2010, net revenues were down -5.71%, net income up +21.44%, and earnings per share up +20.00%, respectively. The operating and net margins increased again to multi-year highs of 31.28% and 20.66%, respectively. The increase in net income was mostly attributable to the ongoing decrease in provision for credit losses and a decrease in noninterest expense, operating expenses..

Wells Fargo Balance Sheet Q3 2011 Total assets increased QoQ +3.6% and YoY +6.9% to $1.305 trillion. The capital to assets ratio (total stockholders' equity divided by total assets) dipped to a continued very good 10.67%.

The ALL/Loans ratio (Allowance for Loan Losses divided by Gross Loans) was 2.64%, should be adequate, and is the lowest since March 2009.

Increased Loans and Deposits, Lower Expenses from Second Quarter

SAN FRANCISCO – Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) reported record net income of $4.1 billion, or $0.72 per diluted common share, for third quarter 2011, up from $3.3 billion, or $0.60 per share, for third quarter 2010, and up from $3.9 billion, or $0.70 per share, for second quarter 2011.

“The economic recovery has been more sluggish and uneven than anyone anticipated,” said Chairman and CEO John Stumpf. “We can’t change the economic environment, yet we have worked hard to control the variables we can – making our products and services more relevant to individuals and businesses, focusing on the customer, making as many loans as possible and growing new relationships – as well as fostering longtime ones. We see the results of this focus in growing cross-sell, deposits, and loans. Customers need a trusted financial partner, especially in challenging economic times. Wells Fargo has proven to be that partner over and over again.

Thank you to every single team member who has been involved in this remarkable effort.”

“This was a strong quarter for Wells Fargo, with solid growth in loans, deposits, investment securities and capital, along with improved credit quality and lower expenses,” said Chief Financial Officer Tim Sloan. “While our industry continued to face challenges due to economic conditions during this quarter, Wells Fargo’s diversified model was again able to produce solid results for our shareholders.”
