Wells Fargo Company (NYSE:WFC) Earnings Friday Before The Open

Warren Buffett’s favorite bank, Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC) officially kick off earnings season for the financial stocks Friday morning before the opening bell with the  report its FQ-2 earnings.

Thomson Reuters has the consensus estimates at 1.01 in EPS, up from 0.98 a year ago, that on a 2.6% decline in revenue to $20.82-B.

Wells Fargo and other banks almost never give guidance, but for Y 2014 the estimates are 4.11 EPS Vs 3.89 in Y 2013 and revenue is expected to be flat at $83.82-B.

That decline is expected to be tied to a slower mortgage market. But, a strong underwriting climate from investment banking fees should be a booster for the bank.

Wells Fargo’s stock is up almost 17% YTD, and is up 25%% a year ago.

The current 52.25/shr price compares to a 52-wk and all-time high of 53.08, as well as to a consensus analyst price target from Thomson Reuters of about 53.25.  WFC looks fully valued, and trading at 12.7X expected earnings, not cheap for a bank.

Wells Fargo is the richest valued bank in book value, compared to peers, trading at 1.74X stated book value.

Looking at the Wells Fargo charts, the action is signaling resistance at the 52.36 handle for a while now.
