Ohio Governor Kasich bars Wells Fargo from participation in state financial work

Ohio Governor John Kasich announced that, for one year, he is barring Wells Fargo & Company from participating in future state debt offerings and financial services contracts initiated by state agencies under his authority and that he will seek to exclude Wells Fargo from participating in debt offerings initiated by the Ohio Public Facilities Commission. Kasich is taking the action in response to the recent news that Wells Fargo engaged in business practices that drove employees to create more than two million new accounts without customers' knowledge or authorization in order to generate new fee revenue. As a result, the bank was fined $185M by the federal government and more than 5,000 employees were fired for the practice. Furthermore, some employees who objected to the practices were penalized or fired. "It's clear that Wells Fargo's culture was compromised by greed and by a desire to make money that was stronger than a commitment to following proper ethical standards. While Wells Fargo only does limited retail banking in Ohio, it does regularly seek state bond business so I have instructed my Administration to seek services from other banks instead, and I'll cast my votes against Wells Fargo on the Public Facilities Commission. This company has lost the right to do business with the State of Ohio because its actions have cost it the public's confidence. Policymakers' first instinct in these situations is often to just write another law, but we've seen that that doesn't always make a difference. We need to send a message to this company-and every other company-that the public must be respected, that ethical standards must be respected and when they're not it comes with a cost," Kasich said.

'Healing process' may now start for Wells shares, BofA/Merrill says
BofA/Merrill analyst Erika Najarian believes the departure of CEO, Chairman and President John Stumpf could begin a "healing process" for the shares of Wells Fargo. Consensus feedback from investors post the Congressional hearings is that Stumpf retiring may be a necessary step for the bank to begin putting the cross-sell controversy behind it, Najarian tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects the shares to react positively today on the news. She has a Buy rating on Wells Fargo with a $48 price target. The shares are down 9c to $45.23 in pre-market trading.
