Added that "the third party review of customer accounts is ongoing to determine the extent of any additional necessary remediation, including with respect to additional accounts not yet reviewed." In Q2, Wells Fargo also accrued additional amounts for remediation related to past practices in its automobile lending business, including insurance related products, and mortgage interest rate lock extensions.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. RPM (RPM) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying he believes investors are now more willing to pay a higher multiple for RPM EBITDA because of new possibilities of cost reduction, changes in capital structure, or overall changes to the company given the involvement of activist Elliott Management. 2. Capital One (COF) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Moshe Orenbuch citing improving credit quality, ahead of the industry. 3. Wells Fargo (WFC) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Betsy Graseck stating that the bank's passing the 2018 CCAR stress test removes an overhang and indicates to her that the Fed is receptive of the changes Wells is making. 4. ZTE Corp. (ZTCOY) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at Jefferies with analyst Edison Lee saying Li Zixue becoming Chairman of the Board is an important step toward meeting the conditions of the company's settlement with the U.S. 5. Curtiss-Wright (CW) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at William Blair with analyst Nicholas Heymann saying the valuation is "compelling" following the recent correction in the shares.

Wells Fargo upgraded to Equal Weight after CCAR test pass at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck upgraded Wells Fargo to Equal Weight from Underweight, stating that the bank's passing the 2018 CCAR stress test removes an overhang and indicates to her that the Fed is receptive of the changes Wells is making. Not only did Wells pass, the Fed approved buybacks that were almost twice her estimates, Graseck tells investors. Higher buybacks took her EPS estimate up 4% and Graseck raised her price target on Wells Fargo shares to $62 from $57.
