Wells Fargo ordered to reinstate whistleblower, pay $577K in back wages, damages

The U.S. Department of Labor has ordered Wells Fargo to reinstate and pay $577,500 in back wages, damages and other fees to a former branch manager in Pomona who was terminated after she reported conduct by at least three "private bankers" working under her that she reasonably believed to be bank, wire and mail fraud. Investigators with the department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration found that Wells Fargo terminated the employee turned whistleblower in September 2011 because of concerns raised that the bank's private bankers were opening customer accounts and enrolling customers in bank products without their knowledge, consent or appropriate disclosures. OSHA also found Wells Fargo fired the branch manager for reporting violations of one or more of the enumerated consumer financial laws implemented and enforced by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The former branch manager's reports to Wells Fargo Bank were determined to be protected under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Consumer Financial Protection Act of 2010, and were determined to be at least a contributing factor in her termination.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) was downgraded to Sell from Neutral at BTIG and to Underweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities. 2. Wells Fargo (WFC) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Berenberg with analyst James Chappell saying the bank's competitive advantages have been eroded. 3. RH (RH) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Adam Sindler citing valuation with the stock up 36% over the past month and 15% this week alone. 4. Union Pacific (UNP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Amit Mehrotra saying moderating volumes as well as risks to industrial production in the second half of the year and beyond will limit share upside over the medium term. 5. Check Point (CHKP) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Andrew Nowinski saying with the stock up 27% year-to-date, the valuation has now "reached a peak" given the decelerating billings, product/subscription and free cash flow growth. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Berenberg downgrades Wells Fargo to Sell, says 'too big to differentiate'
Berenberg analyst James Chappell downgraded Wells Fargo to Sell from Hold saying the bank's competitive advantages have been eroded. Wells has become "too big to differentiate itself from wider market trends and deliver the growth which management promises and the market expects," Chappell tells investors in a research note. He expects the bank's return on equity will fall towards the long-term industry average of 10%. The analyst cut his price target for the shares to $35 from $45. Wells closed yesterday down 7c to $54.88.
