Wells Fargo Earnings: What to Watch for


Today, Anand discusses the upcoming earnings report for Wells Fargo (Friday before market). Analysts expect an EPS of $0.90, a good improvement over last Q2's $0.81 a share. And really good considering that JPMorgan and Citigroup are expected to lose ground and Bank of America's report last year was a loss.
