The above table compares Wells Fargo against a peer average (which includes Goldman Sachs, Bank of America (BoA), Citigroup, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley) in terms of dividend yield and price to earnings (P/E) multiples.

Wells Fargo currently trades at a slight discount to its sector peers in terms of a historical P/E and slight premium in terms of a forward P/E assumption. The company has a lower historical dividend yield to its peers in aggregate.

Wells Fargo – technical view

The long term price trend for the share price of Wells Fargo remains down, evidenced by the price trading firmly below the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) - blue line - and the red trend line on our chart.

A downside break (confirmed with a close) of the 39.85 level would call for further decline with 34.40 the initial target considered. Only if a rebound takes the price back above the major high at 46.10, would we reassess the merits of returning a long bias to trades on the company.

    • Hi @Adnan_The_Barbarian Your request has been submitted. Thank youAll the best - MongiIG
    • Charting the Markets: 4 October FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq breaking higher as bulls return to the fold. EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at Y145 again. And Brent crude oil and gold rally on falling US dollar and US natural gas prices.   This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • GBP/USD - PRICES, CHARTS, AND ANALYSIS Sterling rallying hard as gilt market turmoil subsides. There remain plenty of Sterling headwinds. A big shift in GBP positioning as net-longs are slashed and net-shorts jump. Sterling is pushing higher against the US dollar, and has made back all of its recent ‘mini-budget’ sell-off, as the greenback fades lower. The recent turn lower in US Treasury yields, sparked by fears that the US central bank is moving interest rates too high, too fast, has helped to stall the multi-month sell-off in cable. The pair are now back at the March 2020 swing-low around 1.1410, a level that stalled price action prior to the collapse   Oct 4, 2022  Nick Cawley, Strategist | DailyFX
