Wells Fargo CFO says strong credit performance continued
Wells Fargo CFO John Shrewsberry said, "Wells Fargo preliminarily reported $5.9 billion of net income in the first quarter, subject to the resolution of the CFPB/OCC matter noted in today's earnings release. Our financial results included continued strong credit performance, liquidity and capital levels. We returned $4.0 billion to shareholders through common stock dividends and net share repurchases in the first quarter, up 30 percent from a year ago. Our capital remained well above our internal target, and returning more capital to shareholders remains a priority. Our expenses in the first quarter included typically higher personnel expense; however, our noninterest expense dollar target range for full year 2018 remains unchanged."
