Here’s what one trader on StockTwits recently had to say in regards to WFC:

    $WFC $C I don't hear people talking about this, but all the banks built up some huge reserves in H1 while trying to prepare for the worst they were worried about. Economy is doing better than expected. There simply aren't that many defaults. This means big banks might not need to build any more reserves in H2. So not only do they have a ton of money set aside but they should also have pretty good earnings per share on their Q3 earnings. All that money will go towards buybacks and increased dividends as soon as our government allows it. I expect a good run up in bank stocks around Q3 earnings reports. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3613858-odeon-upgrades-six-banks-bove-sees-loan-loss-fears-overblown https://seekingalpha.com/news/3614276-credit-card-metrics-continue-to-improve-though-forbearance-still-factor
