Wells Fargo Reports $6 Billion for Third Quarter

Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo recently reported a net income of $6 billion for its third quarter, compared with $4.5 billion for third quarter 2017.

“In the third quarter, we continued to make progress in our efforts to build a better Wells Fargo with a specific focus on our six goals: risk management, customer service, team member engagement, innovation, corporate citizenship and shareholder value,” said Tim Sloan, CEO of Wells Fargo. “To better serve our customers and help them succeed financially, we launched Control Tower, a digital experience that simplifies our customers’ online financial lives, and our new Propel Card, one of the richest no-annual-fee credit cards in the industry. Furthermore, our ongoing efforts in corporate citizenship and building stronger communities were recognized in a recent survey on corporate giving by the Chronicle of Philanthropy, which ranked the Wells Fargo Foundation as the No. 2 corporate cash giver in the U.S. Our focus on shareholder value included progress on our expense savings initiatives, and we returned a record $8.9 billion to shareholders through net common stock repurchases and dividends in the third quarter.”

“We saw positive business trends in the third quarter, including growth in primary consumer checking customers, increased debit and credit card usage, and higher year-over-year loan originations in auto, small business, home equity and personal loans and lines,” said John Shrewsberry, chief financial officer. “Credit performance and capital levels remained strong. Our commitment to returning more capital to shareholders was demonstrated by an increase in net common share repurchases, which more than tripled from a year ago, and a higher common stock dividend.”
